  1. When I learned to flat felt seams so many years ago it was sew, cut, fold and sew again. This is so much easier.  I do make little boys clothes and will start using this technique.  Thank you!! Cheryl

  3. Ms. Walker, thank you for the tutorial.  I’m a beginner in sewing and have been watching many tutorials.  This seam has a similarity to the french seam; is that correct?
