How to go around a corner
with Wide Bias Tape

Going around a corner with Bias Tape takes a little practise. If you have never done it before it would be worthwhile to try it a few times rather than start with an expensive project which can be ruined.

Pivot Corner

Step I- Pivot Corner

If you want to go around a corner, stitch up to the pivot point, clip the corner and turn the fabric.

Clip off the corner of the back ground fabric to reduce bulk.

Tailored Corner

Step II- Tailored Corner

First turn under and stitch the end of the bias tape, then fold back the bias tape and stitch along stitching line.

Step III-
Inside View

Open to see the back side. It is ready to be folded to meet the stitch line.

Hand Stitch Back

Step IV- Hand Finished

Stitch inside edge of bias tape to stitching line, choosing from one of the three stitching options.

Hand Stitch Front

Step XI- Finished Corners

You can see the pivoted corner is puckered. It would be less puckered with narrower bias tape, but it would still not be perfectly flat. The flattest finish is the more tailored one where one bias tape over laps the other.
