Beautiful isn't it? I took the liberty of fixing the binding and making it a facing instead. I know that you were in a hurry and misunderstood my instructions over the phone, and got my binding and facing instructions switched or combined. Nevertheless, I figured it was my fault, so I allowed myself permission to fix it.
|1. cut the strips to the exact length of the side and sew almost to the end.|
|Fold back the edges to meet in a 45 degree angle like this. Press open so you know where to stitch.|
|Stitch on the dotted line (I didn't use black...this is just for the picture)|
|Trim off excess fabric and finish stitching the point, pivoting at the seam line.|
|Turn right side out. Later I will unsew the facing half way down and turn under the edges to fuse or hand stitch or both. I fused yours, but a few stitches could be added for the finishing touch. No rod pocket was added yet.|
