Stitching Trim To A Round Yoke

A little review for adding trim to a round yoke.  Whether it is piping, rickrack, or the loop trim used here, the technique is the same.  Using a small ruler, measure the seam allowance from the raw edge of the fabric and with right sides together, pin the trim in place. Using a slightly longer stitch length of about 3.0 stitch the trim to the yoke.

When turning a corner, stop with the needle in the down position as you reach the marked seam allowance.  Lift the presser foot and turn the fabric and the trim, lower the presser foot and continue to stitch.

I was pleased with how the trim turned out!  This trim has been in my stash for several years and I am not sure if it is still available, but rickrack would be a nice substitute.
