TIP for SEWING on BINDING TAPE for HOOKED RUG

Yesterday I suggested  you start  sewing on the binding in the corner . . .
Be sure to leave a couple of inches to cut off at the end- and  then just  fold and set up the mitre  on the back side-at the corner where you started!
Voila!! there are no seams joined on your sides.
On the underneath side,neatly sew  corner  MITRED  together with tiny little stitches  . . .use LINEN thread or . . . .
if you do not have any, then use 100% COTTON . .

Take small running stitches  all around on the inside edge of your tape.

For the BEST PHOTOS of this whole procedure check out Jen Manuels  BLOG site  her pictures are excellent  for yesterdays  description of the same thing!

Please  Remember there are many ways to FINISH the EDGE  of a RUG . . . this is just one way . . .which I ,myself like . .  if the rug is at all like an old style of Antique kind of design. . . .or any other style come to think of it!
