Video: Variable-Width Facing on a Decorative Edge

Nov 02, 2008

Gary Junken

with Diane Ericson

When creating a new look by reshaping the edges of a pattern, consider partially extending the facing around the seam. Bold, contrasting material can add excitement to your design, but even subtle colors can accentuate curves and give a flare to the edge. In this video, designer Diane Ericson demystifies the technique of extending the facing around the edge of a seam. It requires some preplanning a little more material, but Diane guarantees “You’ll love the results.”

Diane Ericson designs and writes in Corralitos, California. Read more of her ideas for “Redesigning Pattern Edges” in the June/July 2002 issue of Threads (#101).

    I don't know what she is sewing or what she is talking about. Very annoying and completely useless.

    Although this looks like an amazing and very interesting technique I cannot understand a word she is saying due to the poor quality of the audio. Is there anyway this can be fixed? I would be interested to see more about this technique.

    Sorry but I found this confusing. In the first place I didn't know where she was going, there was no intro to let the viewer know what was about to take place, I think that part was edited out and should have been left in. It would have helped to know in advance what she was going to do and with what, like would this be for a front? Sound quality was bad. I love her work but this one I just didn't "get".

    what novel idea. I will have to give it a try before I can give it a "Love It" but it sure looks like it has the possibility of being that. Thank you Diane Ericson!
