Pillow cording

jojo's picture

Can anyone tell me a correct way to sew cording around the corners of throw pillows? I haven't sewn on a machine in a long time and this is my first attempt at throw pillows. My problem is the corners - when I pin the cording around the corner is bunches up too much. I've tried sniping, but that doesn't seem to do much good. Thx.

btw, I'm using a Pfaff that I just bought - love it!

You have to be brave enough to clip right to the stitching in three or four places and don't make a sharp corner.  Curve around just a little, maybe a quarter inch radius.

Thanks rjf.  I'll try to be brave.

Ok - it's nearly 3 weeks later - did you clip? were you brave? are you on a sewing blitz? Tell, tell, tell!  <grin>
