Hello!

As I've said, Im new to sewing. Could someone recommend a you-tube video (so I may see to better understand) on how to stitch this (I don't know how to refer to it)...the border around an oven mit? I want to also use the same border on a baby block too. Those who understand what I'm talking about, what is this called?? !! And what type of fabric do I use for the border? I'm asking because it seems like its unbendable and thick. Thanks! :)

* Just wanted to add that I have the Brother CS6000i machine - would I need a special foot to purchase for this sewing? Thanks again

s this what you mean? If so, it's called extra wide double fold bias tape. It's available at JoAnn Fabrics and Hancock Fabrics. Here's a site that tells you how to apply the bias tape.

Are you planning to sew this tape all the way around your oven mitt or just around the opening edge? If you're using a quilted fabric (I've not seen mitts unquilted) the edge of the sewed mitt is too thick to attach (sew on) bias tape, in my opinion, anyway. You're asking to break needles.

Second thought.........instead of sewing your mitt right sides together and then turning right side out, you could sew them wrong sides together (edges exposed), trim the seam a little, and then apply the bias tape.......this way the seam would be half as thick, and you'd have a more successful chance of not breaking needles.

You also need a quilted fabric with cotton batting.......not polyester batting.

I really don't know exactly what you're trying to do, so this is about as much info as I can give you.

Yes, thanks so much. That's what I mean! Now, if I want to do that on a baby block, how would I be able to? Any videos on it?

So I must buy the tape....and I was under the impression it was simply fabric! However, I do believe my sewing machine has a foot that does this...would you know?

newtosewing76,

Here is a link to a pictorial tutorial on making and applying double fold bias tape. Bias Tape, How To

Practice on some scraps before working on your project, especially if you are using a specialty machine foot.

The link is pretty thorough and will provide you with the terms you are looking for to help with your YouTube video search. Great idea you had on that, by the way, they have loads of sewing videos.

It is! And you'll get much better results by making your own. The stuff they sell at JA, etc, is a fiddly synthetic blend that won't ease around curves and corners as well as bias tape you make yourself. There are lots of tutorials on bias tape--making it and applying it--both for quilts and for alternate projects like your oven mitts. I typically Google until I've read enough that I understand what I'm doing.

Good luck!
