Okay guys. Today is the day.
Today we’re making PIPING!
What is piping??
It’s not for decorating a cake.
Well, some piping is.
But we’re talking fabric piping. It’s that fun 3D trim you see around the edges of a pillow, on seat cushions, around a bag or purse, and on so many garments. It’s sort of the sister to Bias Tape (which I’ve professed my love for time and time again). And because there’s rope (or cording) sewn inside, it gives that special pop of color or contrast to your project.
Now you can always buy it at the store (in some solid colors). BUT, you can easily make your own! In whatever fabric you want!
You just need a little of this:
And probably this:
And then you’ll be piping every pocket, bag, and First Day Dress placket that’s asking for it.
