Tutorial. I really like the look of scalloped piping. And it is very easy to make, not to mention quick and pretty inexpensive. I thought others may enjoy making their own scalloped piping....so I created this tutorial. All you need is fabric and a sewing machine...

GENIOUS! This method uses freezer paper to trace the pattern and then u IRON IT ONTO YOUR FABRIC and cut the fabric piece. Freezer paper just peels right off and is...get this...REUSABLE!!! oH mY

Make your own baker's twine. Use two colours of stranded embroidery thread, preferably white and another colour. Cut off about two metres of each colour and tie the ends securely to something stable. Thin a little craft glue with water and, as you twist the threads together, paint a little glue on the twisted part. Leave to dry and there you have your baker’s twine!

GOOD IDEA: Place a coffee filter at the bottom of a plant pot, over the drainage holes, to prevent the potting soil from spilling out when you water the plant. The soil will remain in the pot and the excess water will go through the filter.
