Ever since I made the Adelaide Vintage Romper, I've loved using piping. But the piping in the package is a solid color. So if you want something a little more interesting, like the piping I used to flip the w pants, you have to make your own.
Luckily, it's not too hard.
First, make your own bias tape. You want it to be double fold bias tape. The size of your bias tape depends on the size of the cording you use. Then you need some type of cording (or even yarn) and your zipper foot.
Open up the bias tape.
Insert the cording into the bias tape, lining it up along the center fold.
Fold the tape in half, keeping the cording down the center. Use pins to hold it in place.
Use a basting stitch and your zipper foot to secure the cording inside the bias tape, and viola! You have piping.
