For these pillows, precision was key. The Samuel and Sons 2" woven braid had to be turned into a 1/2" mitered flange.
This was not the precise, tailored look I needed to achieve.
Maybe the Miter Queens can do the rest of this job with math, but I can't! I pinned the flange to the table to mark the exact spot for executing the next corner- another use for my can't-live-without gridded table canvas from The Workroom Channel.
The pressed fold helped make it easier to be precise.
I completed the corners one at a time, going back and forth from table to machine (it's only 3 feet away, LOL) for each step.
When they were done I laid the trim out to cut and pin the join, in the center at the bottom.
The last step before applying to the pillow face was to stay-stitch the entire perimeter just inside the final stitching line, to keep the layers from shifting.
The completed trim was sewn to the pillow face as if it were a lip cord.
I just barely tapered the corners, to help avoid pointy pillow ears.
