When I decided I wanted to create a Karri dress sample with piping in the seams, I did the normal thing, and headed straight to the closest large sewing supply store. And guess what? As i should have expected, the only piping they had in stock was white, and stiff, and no-one could tell me what the fabric content was though of course it was probably polyester. SO. Whats a girl to do when she has a ridiculous specific idea of what she wants? Make it herself!
I don’t know how i ended up talking about myself in the third person… so i’m just going to stop now.
Anyway, I found that making my own piping was super easy and also surprisingly, super satisfying. If you have already discovered the joy that is making your own custom bias tape, then you are going to love making your own custom piping. The amazing thing about making your own piping is that you get to choose what fabric you use, and make it match your project perfectly. Cue sewing excitement tears.
Lets get started – you’re going to love how easy this is!
