Always sew with outsides together

Oooppss, when I went to match up the darts, they didn't align.  I put the seam tape on the wrong side of the bottom cushion.  It was a good thing I had the darts as they quickly misaligned and informed me something was wrong.

I had to remove the tape and put it on the other side.

The rule when sewing cushions is that the "outsides" of the material are always facing together prior to sewing.  As such, the seam tape would have gone on the outsides of the material and then they would have been pressed together and then sewn.

That was easily fixed, but was annoying that I had to remove the tape and place it all on the correct side.
