I have used it twice now, the first time was not the success that I hoped it would be, but put it down to my own inaccuracy, so when I was putting the binding on my sewing machine cover I thought I would take photo's of the process to help me identify any errors on my part.
|First step is to measure and mark a space of 12 inches|
|Sew around the binding leaving the 12 inch gap open, you need enough length of binding to have 10 inches left on either side|
|Lay the tool on the marked line and the draw a line on the binding|
|Lay the binding on a cutting mat, match the tool to the marked line and cut|
|Rotate the tool and again mark the binding|
|This time the edge of the tool is where you line up the marked line and then cut|
|Pin the two edges together and then sew|
|This is where it went wrong, on the tool guide its says to cut away the points, so when you sew them together they are easy to match up, but when I did that it came out wonky!|
|When I re sewed it judging it by eye it worked out much better and layed lovely and flat|
I have also pulled off the blue backing, I didn't realise it had one, I thought it was made of blue plastic (Duh) its now much easier to see the marked lines!
