How do you stitch a seam without the edges curling?
Can someone explain to me how to sew a seam (what will be a bottom of a purse) straight without having problems with the cast on edge curling up? I used a cable cast on, and the bag (so far) has been even and neat. I am so nervous that I will mess it up and I do not want to start over. I am working on a felted bag for my mom for Valentine's Day and I don't know if I will get it done if I start over.
Here is the pattern:
I am familiar with the different types of seam stitches, but I am interested in knowing how to "prepare" the piece for seaming. Do I wet it, iron it, pin it? Help please!! :XX:
I usually just uncurl the edge I'm working on and do the mattress stitch. The stitching stops the curling and no preparation is necessary, in my experience.
I supposed you could wet it to flatten it out and it wouldn't be a problem at all since you're going to be felting it anyway.
Thanks! I am going to try using the mattress stitch and cross my fingers that it will work. :)
