    Thank you, everyone. I will try again! I have tried the sew on the back and flip to the front method, however I could never get it the come out right when I use minky for the back. I am curious about the flange technique. I will definaty have to try that.

    I always sew it on the back first. Though one thing I have learned is to be careful on the corners that I don't stretch or pull it down toward the corner, but to be careful and keep it pulled straight toward the center. Gives you a beautiful miter on the binding that way.
