As you can see in the image above, I’m trying to sew two pieces of fabric together by the zigzag edges so that the thread doesn’t show on the front side and also so that the front has none to minimal wrinkles. I’m required to use a sewing machine and I also have to sew everything in one motion.
I’m having trouble sewing the corners. No matter how I try, they always look round/curvy. They should look pointy, angular, not curvy.
In the picture I have above, I try to show what the final product is supposed to look like with the square in the middle and the one on the right.
How can I make this project work? Do I have to fold the seam allowance areas in some obscure way?
Let me know if you need more info to help me out.
Thanks in advance.
