This is Vicki Walker for Expert Village. We
are working today on a backpack for a little girl and a little girls like decorations.
So the trim that we are applying to this backpack is yellow ricrac. I have decided to bring
out a seam gage to help me making sure that I have a even amount between the ricrac and
the edge of the bottom of the backpack. I’m going to I have pinned this part already it
is 4 inches from the bottom. So we would finish pinning ands we would be ready to sew. I have
changed the color of my thread on my sewing machine to yellow cause the black that I was
using just sewing on the back backpack portion would have clashed. So I have yellow now.
So we are ready to sew. So through the center of the ricrac there is enough space in the
ricrac right through the center so I don’t have to sew over onto the fabric which would
stand out against the black fabric. Sew slowly so I don’t get out of line right down the
middle. I’m almost finished and that is it for this ricrac. Any other sort of trim gimp
for one of the purses is another kind of trim that also would look nice. A contrasting fabric
you can cut a strip of the fabric and just sew across the fabric so that the 2 contrast
would be a nice look to. But that is how we sew the trim onto our backpack.
