Mitered Corners / Mitered Binding Corners
Patterns often tell you to stop a ¼” from the edge of the fabric.
What they really mean is stop right at the seam line, which is a scant ¼”. That’s the secret to sharp mitered binding corners and precise set in seams and the Prep-Tool can help.
The secret to sharp mitered corners, including mitered binding corners is to stop right at the seam line.
The Prep-Tool is a Scant ¼” wide and its raised Lip Edges catch the edge of your fabric, so you’ll always mark the exact stopping point every time.
1) Butt the Lip Edges on the Prep-Tool against the edge of the fabric and mark your stopping point.
2) Sew up to the stopping point and then at a 45º angle into the corner.
3) Fold the end of the binding straight up to form a 45º angle.
4) Keeping the 45º angle underneath, fold the binding back down, and start stitching a scant 1/4" from the edge.
