In this tutorial, Anne from Serial Bag Makers explains how to make ‘no-sew’ piping. Adding piping to your bags also adds a certain – je ne sais quoi, as well as adding strength, shape and stability. For a lot of people, sewing with piping is something they have on their wishlist but are afraid to tackle. In truth, it can be a little fiddly.

Deep joy, because with this no-sew piping technique, even if your final work is not ideal, you will not see any stitches, since there will be no stitches to see! If you’re new to piping or struggle with it, this tutorial will help you create some beautiful piping with little fuss.
