Topstitching can add a professional finish to a sewn project. When the item has two right sides, however, it becomes harder to create a neat finish. Today's showcased tutorial overcomes this problem.
Damjana, from Apple Green Cottage, shows how to neatly finish off topstitching on a project that has two right sides. Both sides end up with a clean finish, and no visible tail threads. This is a useful technique for items such as bookmarks, zipper ends and gift bags. The comprehensive tutorial details two different methods, depending on whether the project requires the same, or different coloured threads.
