    how do you bind around 60 degree turns? I do great with the 90 degree but have just made a place mat with 60 degree corners. HELP. Trying to get binding on and it is a mess :(

    Are you using bias binding or straight?

    This is the question of the hour!!! A bias binding will be much easier to ease in with.

    you know, you could always try a little elmers washable glue stick to hold the fabric as you turn it around the corners. i did a hot plate pad, and used it on the inside corners..worked good for me..

    The key to binding around any angle is that when you flip the fabric up before you make your fold, make sure that the edge of the binding makes a continuous straight line with the next side you will be binding. Then when you fold it down the angle is set for you.
