Seam sewing... it always comes apart!!! Help me pleaasssseee
I have made a few pairs of slippers and the seams are now opening up and coming undone.

I am just finishing my last arm for a sweater and then have to attatch the raglan to the front and back.

I am nervous as hell.... I do not want to sew it up and have it come apart one week later. Or worse yet, first time tring to get it over my melon.

Please Help Mee

Do you think maybe it's the way you are weaving in your ends? Here's a few links that might help you out.

I looked at those websites you showed me and yes I was doing it wrong.

I am still really freaked about putting them together, I guess I just put so much work into the sweater and do not want to mess it up.

I noticed as well that the back (first part I did) at the neck line the bind off is different from the other side and does not match up. I guess I made a boo boo

So I think I have to go to my Nana's house and get her to help me.

I better try soon, there is no use in the sweater sitting in a bag in parts.

It would be like buying a oven with out a door and never turning it on....

But thanks for the tip websites.
