Attaching Rickrack To A Neckband
I decided to revisit the Candy Corn Bishop after receiving several emails inquiring about the rickrack on the neckband. First of all, what a wonderful surprise that the bishop that I made last year for Sew Beautiful Magazine now fits our special little one! Now, on to the sewing.
The rickrack is stitched to the right side of the neckband 1/2" from the raw edge, which is the seam allowance for the bishop pattern. A normal straight stitch down the middle of the rickrack is all that is needed, and the rickrack extends all the way to each end of the neckband.
Next with right sides together, pin and stitch the neckband to the bishop as indicated in the pattern instructions. You will be stitching right on top of the previous stitching line.
Just the right amount of rickrack will be showing when you finish the neckband!
The same technique' is used for adding piping to a neckband. :)
