I had to try the technique for making ITH coasters with a binding/decorative edge. I like 'em!

Wreath design is from Oma, just the wreath part, not the coaster, the coffee cup is part of a design from VoiliVoili and the shape part on the coffee cup one is also from Oma.

The technique gives a nice finished edge. These are neatly made.

I think that technique will work with pretty much any shape.

Well, what I did was just duplicate the single outline stitch and make it a bit bigger for the outer edge, than rearranged the colors so it stitched, placement, original outline, designs, outline that was made bigger. Fabric was, stabilizer, thin batting, red fabric, green fabric all face up then after the design was done (it was applique), I added a back piece of fabric that I had sewn a seam in the middle with an opening big enough to turn when done, face down and then stitched the bigger outline.
Sounds more complicated than it really was. If you have something like Embird, I'm guessing it would be much easier. Do you use Embird or something else?

Thanks for sharing your wonderful project and your instructions for completing it. So much prettier than just satin stitch around the edges!

I agree, but I love fabric!
