This is an easy sewing tutorial to help you secure and hide your thread ends when topstitching. Not just when there’s a right and wrong side (and nobody cares about how bulky the finish is on a wrong side, right?) It’s for those projects where there are TWO RIGHT SIDES, both visible.
How To Finish Sewing – Neat seam finish on both sides
TWO VERSIONS HERE:
I’m presenting two versions here: the first one, when the top thread and the bobbin tread are different in color (and finishing them off together could be visible) – and the second, easier version, when both the top thread and bobbin thread are identical (scroll down to see that).
VERSION 1: Front And Back with Different Thread Colors
6) When you’re through, pull gently on the thread, until you see the knot disappear into the fabric.
8) The thread tail has disappeared, no sign of the knot. Congrats on your pro-looking topstitching!
VERSION B: when both thread colors are identical.
1) First, pull all your thread tails to one side of the fabric. Don’t know how to do that? Here’s a super helpful tip by one of our readers (thank you, Evelyn!):
How to draw up the bottom thread end so it is on the same side as the top thread: pull on one thread until it pulls up a small loop of the other one which you can then grab and pull through.
4) Pull the thread through. Tug gently on the thread, until you see the knot disappear in the fabric.
5) While still holding the thread, snip off the thread close to the fabric.
6) Done! A nice topstitching on a simple fabric bookmark.
I hope this sewing tip will be useful, and help you achieve professional topstitching results on your sewing projects.
