Video: Pressing Templates for a Sharp Edge

Gary Junken

with Linda Lee

A simple manila folder can become a template for both straight and curved edges. Linda Lee, author and owner of The Sewing Workshop, demonstrates how easy it is to create perfectly pressed hems and pockets. These templates can be made to any size and are great for slippery material or matching two rounded corners. Lee also demonstrates the proper motion to use with the iron to avoid burned fingers.
