Other Tips and Tutorials for Sewing Our Knit Top Boxes
In addition to the sewalongs and tutorials, we've gathered some other helpful tricks. First up is a guide to sewing knits on a regular machine. There's no need for a serger to sew any of our boxes, and this post, from Tilly and the Buttons, will cover useful tools and settings for your machine. Next up, we have a quick guide on sewing with a twin needle. A twin needle is a great way to achieve the look of a coverstitch without needing a whole new machine. And finally, we have a tutorial from Needle Sharp fave, Helen's Closet, on attaching cuffs. This is part of the pattern for the Bowline Sweater, but you could also add cuffs to any knit top if you so choose. They're sort of the knit equivalent of adding pockets to your dresses and skirts!

Attaching Snaps without Specialty Tools
Last but not least, we have a tutorial specifically for the Camas Blouse. this pattern gives you the option of using either snaps or buttons, and we've provided you with both. If you choose the snaps, here is a wonderful video on how to attaching them without any fancy tools. All you need is a hammer and a spool of thread!
