What I love about Swiss Edging!

A few of my favortite Swiss Trims. 
I like Swiss Edging's  that are finished with entredeux.  The entredeux side is attached to the fabric just like you would attach entredeux to fabric.  And the edging side is...well the edge!

I used a Swiss Edging here to embellish either side of the front placket of Baby's First Daygowns.

It added just the right touch to this little Daygown.

On Toddler's Summer Dresses I used it at the hem.  Again I wove floss through the entredeux edge of the trim.  I love to do that on white fabric!!

On colored fabric's, I use it as is!

Perfect for the hem of a Baby Dress!!
