Once again, this step is done incorrectly in the photo but I am showing it for clarification (the ban roll should be half an inch from the edge of the fabric). Here you can see how the ban roll lines up with the needle - the next step is to stitch up against the woven part of the roll. You want to make sure your stitching stays within this "comb area", and not into the woven area, because you will be pulling it out later. If you stitch into the woven area, you cannot pull it out!
