Making piping for cushions

Postby nonie » November 7th, 2016, 2:12 pm

I should have priced cording but am assuming there is something I already have to make cording for cushions. What would you suggest. Such a tight budget going on here.

Nonie, I only purchase the thicker cording at Joann's. But that's my only source locally. It is very inexpensive. Do you think you might catch it with one of the good coupons right now?

Good idea Jerry thank you. I am also going to price it at Hobby Lobby. Just wondering if anyone used something else.

Like Jerry I wait till I can use a coupon at Joanns and get it there. Along with my VIP discount that I get for belonging to a sewing organization that really knocks the price down. I probably save enough during the year to pay for my SAGA membership.

Thanks you, that is what I will do. I am trying to save Janel money, I offer to make things like the piping but I know she just wants me close by for help and for me not to do her project.

I'm with Jerry's suggestion. It is very inexpensive but it is amazing the quantity one can need to do the work. I think the cord I usually use for home dec is 3/32nds size and maybe 29 cents a yard. tip: I like to round off my corners with a nickel or a dime instead of piping sharp corners.
