Fabulous Friday 9

Sometimes it is the simplest things that make the biggest difference in our projects.  Like when you've stitched a pillow or apron and then turn your almost finished project right side out and you have the three inch unfinished gap you have to slip stitched closed!  Hate it.  Never looks good.  Well, WHY DIDN'T SOMEONE TELL ME ABOUT THIS STUFF!!!!It will close up the gap without the tell tale hand stitching.  Just cut a piece the size of the gap and iron in place.  That's it, it's done!  And it does so much more.  Holds ribbon in place for a perfectly straight line for top stitching.  Saves Sunday morning panic when you notice an undone hem.  And it is cheap too!  Less than 5 bucks and the roll will last FOREVER!  Get!  Walmart, Target or your local fabric store.  Diana

  1. I use Steam a Seam 2 fusible tape... does the same thing. Isn't it wonderful??? I absolutely hate having to do hand stitching, and this works every time!
