Tshirt-trim_large

Remove the garment from the machine, pull all your threads to the wrong side and knot them.
Bury the threads by threading them onto a needle (1 or 2 at a time) and take a single stitch just through the under layer of the seam allowance. Cut off the threads.
On the wrong side of the garment, trim the excess seam allowance very close to the stitching with the applique scissors.

    This is an awesome idea!! I’ve been making a lot of t-shirts for myself lately and have been scratching my head trying to figure out how to finish necklines, and this is perfect! Thanks so much for sharing! :)

    that is a beautiful and decorative finish for knit fabric! I could also see using the technique for an applique design in one or several areas on the garment, maybe initials, swirling circles, as an edging on a pocket in same or complimentary colors, being sure to use a ‘for knits’ ultra light fusible interfacing for a stabilizer. Metallic threads would add a bit of WOW power!
