Piping is a great way to accent your projects and it's pretty unbelievable how easy it is!
Here's how I make it:
1. your supplies: some cording, and some fabric, about 3 cm/1" wide and as long as you need
2. attach your cording to the fabric...a little awkward, but just make sure you have a few stitches in there
3. fold over the fabric and stitch as close to the cording as possible using a zipper foot. I found that as I was stitching, it helped to feed the fabric in at an angle
4. a few stitches at the end
5. admire your work!
