Next, I want to apply hem tape. The tape covers the raw edge of my hem allowance, making my work appear neater and more "professional." I put this on by machine, and I didn't go to the trouble of pinning the tape in place first. I just put my work under the needle, lowered the presser foot, and carefully fed it into the machine. By the way, I haven't looked for hem tape in a long time and I don't know if it's sold much anymore. My hem tape is from my stash and the copyright on the package said 1974. If you can't find this product, use seam binding instead.
