I Sewing Sharp Curves

Stop the machine with the needle in the fabric
outside the appliqué. Raise the presser foot and turn
the fabric a little bit at a time while sewing for an
attractive finish to the seam.
Memo
Placing a lightweight tear away stabilizer
beneath the stitching area will improve the
stitch placement along the edge of the appli-
qué fabric.

Shelltuck Stitches

Shelltuck stitches give an attractive appearance of
shells along the curve of a collar. This stitch
pattern can be used for edging the neckline or
sleeves of dresses and blouses.
