Again, this is optional. A good press will allow this piece to lie flat. But I like to topstitch, because: 1. these small bits often get mangled in the wash, and it’s impossible to ever get back the original shape without topstitching; and 2. I just like how decorative it can be. (as you can see my top-stitching skill isn’t tops)
