Welt seams and Flat Felled seams are often used in apparel and accessories to give the piece a nice finishing touch. Welt seams are a quick and easy finish, usually used in lined garments or bags. Flat Felled seams are more durable, and are used in more heavy duty projects.
This seam is a little more complicated. When stitching your pieces together, make sure to use a 1/2 inch seam allowance.
Afterwards, press the seam allowance to one side. Then fold in half and press again. Stitch a straight line along the fold with a 1/2 inch seam allowance, back stitching at the beginning and end.
Stitch another straight line 1/2 an inch from the first line.
Unfold the fabric and press the seam to one side.
