Difficulty Level:

Average

Here’s How:

    3. Add an extra 1/2 inch seam allowance and cut the fabric pieces.
    4. Finish all cut edges immediately with a zig zag stitch, to prevent ravelling.
    5. Sew project according to pattern directions.
    6. For soft fabrics, you can use a fusible interlining to increase the stability of the fabric.
