How to make - Mitered Corners
We’ve done some of the work for you so you can get a quick start listening to the book. If you’d like to complete one from scratch we included extra fabric for a second handkerchief later.
- Grab the large cloth with the pinned corners. Using the backstitch ( see video below for help ) sew along the line making sure to double stitch on both ends and make is secure.
- Snip off the tip. ( fig. d. ) Turn the corner right side out and press.
- Tuck the smaller square of fabric inside the back of your handkerchief, trim if necessary so that it lies flat and edges are hidden under the mitered hem.
- Pin it securely. Use the running stitch to secure.
