New Video: Finishing Machine Appliques – Beautifully!

You’ll find a new video tutorial for finishing machine appliques on the Sew Jewish YouTube channel. It’s a sewing topic I’ve covered in earlier project videos, but I figured that if I made a video dedicated to the topic, I could refer to it in future project videos — and making shorter project videos is one of my goals.

So if you’re looking for a tutorial on machine applique, you can watch it above or on YouTube.

The video shows how to achieve a nice smooth line of finishing stitches around your appliques, for the basic corners and curves you’ll encounter. And it covers beginning and ending.

Here are the links referred to in the video:
