Thanks for the tutorial, but there is no reason to go to the other site. Just snip the excess cording so they abut.

Wonderful tutorial! Your Dottie bag caught my eye and I bought your pattern on Craftsy!

I would add that for all of you who do alot of piping, the Piping Magic Tool is a little known but oh, so wonderful aid.

Here is a nice video by Sailrite that shows how to attach piping to a throw pillow:

I'm just cruising PR and saw you tutorial. I don't use piping a lot but always have trouble when joining bias strips. Yours is the first clear and easily understood illustration that works for me. Thank you bunches! I have 9 more pillows to make and hopefully will return to my project in 2 weeks when the dust settles. It has just been made easier and I appreciate that so much!
