Once your stitching is finished, press the hem with the ban roll still intact. Then, carefully pull out the ban roll! If you stitched correctly, you will have only sewn onto the comb section, and not into the woven section - thus holding the roll into the hem just enough to sew, but then once finished it can simply be pulled straight out! In the second photo, you can see just how narrow the finished baby hem is - and how straight! The ban roll is sturdy and does not allow the delicate fabric being hemmed to stretch at all.
