Sewing With Trims - Applied Trims


Hi Everyone! In Part 2 we are going to take a look at sewing applied trims to add a decorative element to your garment. These can be used to cover seam lines or to simply add an interesting design element. Follow along with me as I demonstrate a few different ways to use trims!

I'll be demonstrating these methods using several different Liberty Jane designs to help illustrate how the basic techniques and methods are used at a smaller scale. Follow along to understand my thought process, hopefully watching me in action will clarify any concerns or issues you may have with these types of techniques.
