I found this cheat’s way to make mitred corners for a tea towel for a friend.  This method just involves ironing, cutting and pinning the corners.  Rather than ironing, SEWING, cutting and repinning.  I couldn’t quite figure out from the links in my previous post, where to sew exactly.  I think the tricky thing is that sewing is always a bit inside out and requires some specialist lateral thinking.  And with spacial awareness not being one of my strong points, it may take me some time to comprehend the inside-out- thinking and realise exactly where to sew.

Generally, despite my sewing on the underside looking particularly scrappy, I was pleased with the end result.  Or, more to the point, the recipient was.  Check out her wonderful website here: I especially like the shop section!
