I am trying to do my first applique project.
If something overlaps by going underneath another fabric, do you have to fold the piece over or just sew a little farther into the piece going over it and leave the edge raw.
Example: I am doing a 4 flowers and stems leading to a circle in the center with the flowers surrounding it. When I come to the end of the stem where it goes under to circle, do I have to fold over the end or will a raw edge be fine. It will actually be covered with 2 circles, 1 large and 1 small.
