    Double-mitered binding

    I took a class where I learned this technique. In this method you sew each corner of the binding individually. The teacher recommended that we make a small sample and mark each corner with part of the technique. That way we have something to refer to when our memory leaves us in the lurch.

    Here is the pdf with pictures.

    That looks really interesting just glancing at the pictures. I'll have to take the time to read it closely. Thanks for the info.

    I can't use adobe flash with my current antivirus but it sounds like you learned some valuable things in your class.

    Thank You for sharing! I just watched a video on binding with a tool from Creative Grids and it is the same concept. Now I don't have to buy a new tool, I can just use my ruler. Have you tried this method with any other angles?
    God gave me the gift to learn and teach. It's up to me to know which gift to use and when to use it.
