How to sew a seam

I made a cover for a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, based on this pattern.
I worked from the bottom up so now I need to sew the bottom closed (so my fiance’s galaxy tab doesn’t fall out! - that would be amusing!).
I believe it is a horizontal seam I need to do but I can’t figure out how to do it without it being really visible.
Here is what I have so far:


If you turn the Galaxy cozy inside out, undo the bind off, and put the sts evenly divided onto 2 needles, you can do 3 needle bind off to close the end. You can even leave the cover right side out and do the 3 needle bind off on the outside. It makes a very neat, small seam that looks like a row of sts. Alternatively, with the sts again on two needles you could graft (kitchener stitch) the ends closed for a seamless close. There are videos under the Free Videos tab at the top of this page, Tips if you’d like to see a demonstration.

Thank you. Is there a video on how to undo the cast on? It is the cast-on edge that I need to seam closed because I worked from the bottom up.

The cast on edge is not as easy to undo but it can be done. You have to unpick the first row as you pick up the live sts with a needle. You’re really picking up the bars between sts but that’s ok. Just be patient and pick up each loop as it becomes available. Might be a good idea to practice this on a small swatch, just so you get the idea.

Thanks for the great advice!
I found this video on youtube and used the method given there. It has turned out really neat :slight_smile:
In future, I’ll probably approach this project differently and work from the top down. Live and learn :slight_smile:

Thanks for the video. It’s a good grafting technique for bound off sts. Good luck with the project!
