Beautiful color for this project. I love it! Ironing and pining and if I get in fluster I have grabbed up and lightly put a glue stick to it pinched it on then sewn. Works great! I don't glob it ....... like using a light wet sponge effect on a stamp. I hope this helps. It also works great on tiny tiny doll clothes. Just remember a little light touch kinda like few pins!
Glad you asked the question. I am sure there are many of us who have this problem, me included. The hints are always helpful. Thanks.
sewing with nancy has a tutorial on binding some times a reminder works wonders..
Nicely stitched. I would take a piece of binding and do some practice samples. I've tried several ways and they all work but I still like the bias binding foot for quick even results.
They look great - I don't have any suggestions - sorry!
Hi. Love your projects. I always cut my binding on the bias and iron, iron, iron. I make sure it is completely pressed in the center and the edges are ironed under, then am careful not to stretch it too much as I am sewing it on. Still mess up some times, but am doing better. If all else fails, you can hand baste it own before sewing on the machine. Yuck. Hope this helps
I like the warmth of the fabric-very nice
I L*VE the set...I am still trying to master the binding tape issue. I pin mines but somehow everything doesn't stay in place ;D *2U
Well i find if it is not smooth i use my regular sewing machine zig zag and fix him smoothly hugs
Not sure what you mean,is this in the hoop and the back fabric is not sitting right,a little spray starch and pins...It looks great...
No it is not in the hoop. The last step to sewing your pot holder is to put binding around the edges to finish it off and I never end up with a smooth finish.
I have this problem, too. I love to make pot holders, but hate the way my binding looks. Wish I knew the secret to smooth binding.
