Mitered Corners / Mitered Binding Corners

The secret to sharp mitered corners, including mitered binding corners is to stop right at the seam line.

The Prep-Tool is a Scant ¼” wide and its raised Lip Edges catch the edge of your fabric, so you’ll always mark the exact stopping point every time.

1) Butt the Lip Edges on the Prep-Tool against the edge of the fabric and mark your stopping point.

2) Sew up to the stopping point and then at a 45º angle into the corner.

3) Fold the end of the binding straight up to form a 45º angle.

4) Keeping the 45º angle underneath, fold the binding back down, and start stitching a scant 1/4" from the edge.

The Prep-Tool also helps to sew precise scant 1/4" seam allowances and accurately trim triangle points. Learn More.
