Making your own piping is really easy and makes things like pillows and bags look professional and well made. Use self fabric for a subtle detail or use a contrasting fabric to make seam lines and design details stand out. I’ll show you how to do it:
You’ll need at least half a meter of fabric (or else you’ll have lots of seams) and figure out how much piping you need before you cut up your fabric. If your fabric is expensive you can make your piping out of a plain cotton that matches. Making your own piping is great because you can choose how thick you want the piping to be. I usually use 1/8″-1/4″ cord bit you can use any thickness.
