This is another basic video about automotive upholstery (the use of french seams, how to make foamed pleats, and an introduction to foamed designs.. It is another basic training that will prepare us to understand and accomplish bigger projects if you follow these simple instructions.,


It is very important to know, understand and master the basic sewings which are used in upholstery: blind stitches, flat-felled or oversewing stitches, double or french-stitches, piping or welting and the bindings.


Besides, you have to learn how to properly make the foamed pleats (on top stitches and inside or blind stitches), etc...and, over all how to take the right measures and get the required templates with their respective allowances.
