Abby from Things for Boys shows how to make a turned lapped seam. This seam finish has the fabric wrap around a seam allowance that has been pressed open. (It’s hard to describe with words, but her tutorial shows how it’s done in photos and with a diagram.) The result is a seam that is nicely finished on both sides of the fabric with no raw edges showing. Go to her blog to see how to make it.
