Finally Done

 

Ugh, this didn’t finish up quite as well as I’d like.  I tried a faux piped binding tutorial I saw online and I messed it up somewhere big time.  It’s ok and I’ll try it again but I have another method in mind.

It looks ok from the back but one corner was totally goofy.

This one was ok, but see?  I had to topstitch the edge (with invisible thread), so it’s really just a wonky stripe along the edge.  And I had too much green & not enough white (though I followed the cutting directions?).  Ahh well, another WIP done, off to another!

I think it turned out great and very pretty! I had a hard time doing binding for rug mugs this weekend, but when I finally did the last one, it finally came together.

I like it anyway....not sure if this is the piping affect you were going for, but this tutorial should help you figure it out. I've used this one.

I think the faux piping looks cool! Nice job. I've been wanting to try that technique, actually. Thanks for linking up with WIP Wednesday, have a wonderful week!
