We’re back!  And today it’s all about sew basting.  There are EPPers that prefer to sew baste and I was in this camp for several years.

We’ve got a video tutorial to show you how to get this done.  Bonus points because you get to use old thread that you thought you’d never use!  One of the benefits of sewing basting is that removing your papers is way easier and they keep their shape without the use of an iron.  The downside is it’s quite a bit slower.  Try both methods, so that you can decide for yourself which you prefer.

On to the tutorial!
