Step Lines

[title] Sew the outer curved edge
[* black] Starting at one corner, ***sew*** along the entire length of the ***curved edge***. Be careful to keep the elastic straps out of the way.
[* icon_note] I recommend using a ***stitch length of around 2 mm*** for this step, and on all future sewing steps.
[* icon_reminder] At the beginning and end of your stitching, make sure to go ***forward and backward about 3-4 stitches*** to prevent the thread from unravelling.
[* icon_caution] Don't forget to repeat these beginning and ending overlapping stitches on ***all future sewing steps***.
[* black] Your stitching line should be about ***1/4" (6 mm) away from the edge*** of the material.
[* icon_note] On many sewing machines, you can simply line up the edge of the material with the edge of the presser foot to achieve this spacing.
-[* icon_note] If any pins are in your way, you can simply remove them as you sew.
+[* icon_note] If any pins are in your way, you can simply remove them as you sew. When you're done sewing, ***remove any remaining pins***.
[* black] After you finish (and after all future sewing steps) ***trim away all excess threads*** with your scissors.
