Jeans Back Pocket Tips

Product Information

I’m always learning new tips and tricks, and this is a great one that I picked up from the last session of the Design Academy Class. There’s a great product out there called Steam-A-Seam or Lite Steam-A-Seam 2. You can use it for all sorts of things, like small hems or placing under the turned edge before adding velcro. This example shows how to use it for turning under the edges of those tiny back pockets on a pair of Liberty Jane Jeans. The stuff goes on like tape but then when ironed, it bonds the fabric (which is like having an extra pair of hands). The pocket edges will stay turned under perfectly while you focus on the art of topstitching! Love it! Below is a step-by-step illustration showing you how to use it. You can find the product at most craft stores or buy it online here:Lite Steam-A-Seam 2 Double Stick Fusible Web-1/4″X40 Yards

    Thank you for the tip and where to purchase. I, myself, can see this being a must have item in my collection of notions for sewing doll clothes. Thanks again!

    I’ve been using this product for years! It’s great for applying ribbon to skirt bottoms or bodices. I also put it under the folded edge before adding Velcro. I stock up when JoAnn’s has their 50% off notions sale. It comes in 1/4″ and 1/2″ widths.

    I’ve used this product a few times and it makes my needle gummy causing my thread to keep breaking. What am I doing wrong? Any tips? Thanks!
