I have had a few people ask me what I use my Lapel Sticks on. So I am going to show you.
Come with me while I bind my quilt.
Here I am getting my binding ready....no lapel stick needed yet.
Now...don't look at my ironing board cover, I actually think it is time for a new one.
Folding my strips in half with steam
No Lapel Stick needed yet...but I promise, I will be getting to it soon.
Sewing the binding on one side.
Missouri Star Quilt Co., they even have a tutorial on how to use this tool...but we are talking about Lapel sticks today...so let's get to it.
How you ask?
Get my amazing Lapel Stick.
See where I have put the Lapel Stick on the edge of this fabric. It is great.
Here it is glued together. All it took was a line of glue, finger press the two pieces together and there you have it. No pins to mess with. Trust me, using pins is a pain when you are trying to do this.
See how I put the Lapel stick on the binding part....So I apply the stick, iron, apply the stick, iron. This is such a great way to get your binding on so nicely.
I flipped the binding towards the backside. (I think my mother does it opposite of what I do..but hey...she loves it her way and I love it mine).
Now for the fun part.
I know that some of you have asked..."Where do I get these Lapel Sticks?"
Keith who created the Lapel Stick is offering
40 Sticks for 50 dollars, shipping is included in this!!
That is such a deal.
This offer is good until October 20th!!!
Tomorrow I will show you some other ways I use these Lapel Sticks.
I would love to give one away to a few readers, just comment below and we will see what we can do...(I am talking like there is a mouse in my pocket...hummmm)
