Have you ever wondered what all of those stitches on your sewing machine are used for? Some are used for construction and others are used for finishing and then some are used just because they look pretty. When we are first starting out in the world of sewing our sole focus is on cutting out the pieces correctly and then putting them together so it all fits together properly and looks good..
But what about the inside edges, how do they look?
