Use DMC heirloom sewing machine thread when doing this for real and needle size#60, #65 or #70.
For the sample I will just be using normal sewing thread so you can see it easy in the photos and it will be a contrasting color for the same reason.
- Cut 1 piece of entredeux and one piece of fabric the same length
- Prep by starching and pressing the fabric and entredeux (using clean iron, and clean board, also use spray starch)
- DO NOT trim the entredeux
- lay entredeux and fabric right sides together with fabric on the bottom
- Sew a straight stitch to the right of the entredeux making sure not to go into the hole
- In this photo the entredeux has already been sewn to lace from another tutorial please don't let that through you. You are looking at the straight stitch to the right of the entredeux . The blue line of stitches is the one relevant to this tutorial.
- Zig zag the raw edges together do not go into the entredeux only go into the stitching line and over the raw edge to encapsulate it in thread and keep it from unraveling ( no stitches should have gone into the hole of the entredeux)
- on right side of fabric using a narrow zig zag stitch over the seam that joined the entredeux to the fabric the second photo is showing what it would look like if the lace was not attached yet
