How do I make crisp corners when sewing?
*Reinforce the corners by either back stitching OR stitching over the corners twice. *Use a turning tool (or a chopstick) to turn your corners right side out. Be careful not to push your tool too hard and puncture the fabric. (Note: After turning I will often use a pin to pull the fabric on the corners out to a point.)
