How to make piping

The more you will focus on the things in your sewing career, the more you are going to learn. I learned about piping when I was at my intermediate level and I used to observe my bags. How there were colorful stripes at the edges of the bag which were providing a clean and professional look to the bag. That time I thought I am not going to make it as it was looking a little-complicated thing to cover up.

If you are thinking the same things as I was doing, then here I am today to help you in learning about the piping. Personally, I love adding piping to my home décor project for the finishing and to some of my dresses as well. All you need to have is the best sewing machine for beginners making clothes and you can make your own piping. You can visit

How to make piping

Cut the Strips:

I usually prefer to choose the colorful strips to make the piping as it looks beautiful and give a compliment to your work. At the time of preparing piping, choose the fabric according to the theme of the project, you can also pick up the color on the basis of contrast. Let move to the cutting. Measure the strip after observing the length and requirement of piping on the project.

Fold the fabric diagonally so you can cut the straight line as well as to match the grainline. Before cutting you can also draw a line on the wrong side of the fabric to avoid any mismatch cutting. You can cut as many strips as you want, based on what kind of project you are doing. Also, keep a check at what width do you want of the piping.

Connect Strips:

The next after cutting for what you should move is to connect the strips with each other. Now you have two strips which need to be connected to each other. First pin the strips together in a 90-degree angle and make sure the line is straight. Now start sewing the line from the top corner to attach them both with each other. They must look like overlapping each other.

Once you are done with the sewing, it's time to move towards the seam allowance. Trim the seam allowance of the piping and repeat the whole process of connecting to all the strips. Make it a one long tape shape strip to use it on the project.

Inside Cord:

Now take a fabric cord which is easily available in the market or at sewing stores, and place it at the wrong side of the fabric. You have to cover the whole cord into the fabric as a wrapping. The cord must be thin in width as per your requirement. In some of the cases you may need to go for the thick cord but for the dresses, I recommend as thin as it can be.

For the home décor project, it must be thick enough to provide stability to the project as well to hide the fraying ends of it. Now after placing the cord at the wrong side of the fabric, you need to stabilize it with the help of pins. Attach the cord for few minutes to the fabric with the help of sewing pins. Fold the over top of the fabric in half to cover the cord.

Sew it:

Now it's time to move on to the best sewing machine for beginners and you can
learn more here. Keep the zipper foot attached to your sewing machine as it is going to make your work a lot easier. Keep a check at the settings of the sewing machine as well as adjust the stitch setting to the longest. Before you start stitching on the cord, use some patch to check the stitch settings.

The longer stitches will help the piping in getting a grip of the project and you can attach it easily. Start stitching the fabric along with the cord but don't keep it too tight. Start sewing it from end to end and it must look like a stick in a shape. Keep the stitches as well as piping as even as possible. Now you have your homemade pipping in your hands.

Attach it:

Now the next and last step you need to get over is to attach this to the panel or any project. This part can be a little crucial as now you have to connect the piping to the garment and it must look clean and professional. It must not look like that you have made something at home. Start attaching the piping to the project point to point with the help of pins.

Once your whole piping is attached to the fabric and you have successfully placed all the pins to the piping, now it's time to sew it permanently. I recommend to press it with the help of fingertips or iron to keep it flat at the time of connecting. Turn your piece to the wrong side and start stitching the whole piece with the help of sewing machine.

At the time of sewing piping for the first time to the fabric, keep the stitch setting longest and you need to repeat the process again to make it fit nicely, so for the second time you need to keep the length of the stitches regular. The combination of both long and medium stitches will give strength to your project.

This is one of the tasks you will enjoy preparing. For the next time when you will prepare any project, you are definitely going to prepare the piping for it as it is fun and you will get a chance to play with the color combination in something unusual.

If you live on the west side of WA, I always enjoyed the Glacier Peak Wilderness area and the lakes north of I-90, or for a larger adventure head to the Paysatan Wilderness in the Okanagan area.

Go up the Mountain loop highway out of Granite Falls. As you go up the road you will come to lake 22 Creek. Park there and follow the creek up to Lake 22. Better wait until July as me and a buddy did this in memorial day weekend many moons ago and ran into snow about half way up. When we got to the lake it was still frozen over. The hike is about 2 miles long all up hill. It felt like it was still going up hill on the way down.

Better yet. Get a good map and search it out before you go.

Look at the Alpine Lakes wilderness. Lakes are up the Miller river watershed, and the Foss River watershed. All are accessible by trails. There are plenty of Mountaineers guidebooks for the hikes. As far as the lakes go, there is info on the WDFW website as to fish populations. If you get farther up in the Wilderness Area, there are lots of other lakes beyond these 2 sets up the rivers mentioned

What kind of experience are you looking for? There's a billion overpopulated lakes with 10-12" westslope cutthroat willing to swim 25 feet for a dry fly. There are very few fishing secrets worth keeping in the Alpine. The rest is pretty fair game.

I think many are happy to point folks in the right direction with a lake name or trailhead for a great trip if they know your fitness level and values.

Coal lake is heavily fished and only has small fish anyway. Maybe try Goat lake. It has a pretty large population of Brook trout, though nothing big. I think the biggest one I ever caught there was 11 inches but it's a beautiful spot.
