Last night I made piping for the very first time! And not just some piping....TEN YARDS of custom piping!
FYI: If you use a 26"x26" piece of fabric and cut it in 1 1/2" strips along the bias you will get just over 10 yards. This was a very happy coincidence for me, as I was working with 10 yards of cording! I used this tutorial.
