I’ve often wondered how to get a beautifully sewn mitered corner. Not the kind you just fold, but the kind that are sewn closed with no thread showing. I would grab a dinner napkin and study its seams…thinking it would magically speak to me, telling me exactly how to create it. Well that didn’t happen. So I Googled it. It’s pretty simple and looks fantastic! Here’s how:For this particular project, I wanted a 1 1/2″ hem total. So I started by folding my first hem in 3/4″, pressing, then folding my second hem in 3/4″. Whatever your measurements are, press well.
When you’ve done that, unfold your second hem.
Still in first hem position fold the fabric, right sides together, matching up the dots.
Draw a line, from the dots you’ve made, to the corner of the crease made by the second hem. This is easier to see if your first hem is short than your second, but if they are the same size like mine, it’s also where your first hem ends and hits the corner of the fabric.
It looks sew nice.
