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.

    I’m not familiar with ban roll. It looks like the strips of crinoline that are used for hats & hems. Am I correct?

    Also, if you do place the ban roll 1/2" from the edge of the fabric, do you need to trim up the fabric after the first stitching but before flipping to the other side?
