useful tip for adding seam allowances

I just saw this post on Pam's Off the Cuff sewing Style regarding seam allowances.  For those of you that like the burda style patterns there is the aggravating issue of adding the seam allowance to the pattern.

Pam uses a surprisingly simple technique with her sewing machine to stitch around the pattern with her sewing machine (unthreaded) using a small stich so that the needle is effectively cutting the excess paper away from the pattern piece.

Click the link above, its simple and I am going to give it a go soon and have to give my thanks to Pam for posting the idea on her blog.

Catch you later...............
