Blind stitch trim appliqué
July 10, 2011

I had to come up with a new blind stitching technique to make the appliqué of trim faster. Necessity is the mother of invention!!! To get the gist of the technique, I am doing a zig-zag blind stitch sewing the back side of the trim to the face of the fabric while advancing the trim over each previous stitch as I draw the thread taught.  Now I need to figure out how to record hands free with the iPhone!  I promise I will add video to the blog soon!

Virginia had a case of Blah Entry Drapes (BED). The drapes are well made and well intentioned but just a little non-descriptive. I found a perfect little trim at The Remnant Store and the drapes are going to be Elegant & Stylish. I love easy, inexpensive solutions and so do my clients! Here is a before, during and after pictures.
