  • Use a Turning Tool to turn right sides out in corner areas (like tail).
  • It is helpful to notch curves to allow the fabric to stretch around bends, which in turn produces nice finished curves that lay flat without wrinkles.
  • When sewing with small pieces of fabric, it is beneficial to use a clear sewing foot to help with sewing visibility.
