Featured in the PR book!
I can't believe what a difference using
3/4 inch tissue paper strip has made
when trying to sew a stubborn knit
that does not want to be sewn on. WOW
Without the tissue I had a very ugly
gathered stitch. You just have to place the tissue on top of the seam and sew through it. Removing the tissue was
easiest when I would pull both sides simultaneously
away from stitching.
