    This is really helpful, as there are many steps involved. However, I would have liked a “quickie” version, where you compress the six videos into one that was about 8 or 10 minutes long. For instance, the video where you apply the interfacing could’ve been about 30 seconds long for someone who basically knows how to do this. –Just a suggestion! It is still really great. thanks.

      Great feedback Kathrin! Thank you. I like the idea of a beginner level series and a series for the more experienced sewer. I will put this on my list of to-dos. Thanks again
