Flat-Felled Seam | Definition


flat fel-d seem



A flat-felled seam is a type of seam where you sew two pieces of fabric together, that  need to lay flat and have high holding strength. You can accomplish a flat-felled seam by sewing the two pieces  together first with both external faces against one another. Then you flip one piece  over so you're looking at the face of the project. Then running a stitch right over the  new fold. 

Flat-felled seams are frequently used for tarp and tent builds. They help hold great  strength and enhance water repellency.
