Step 3. Wrap: Layer fabric for wrap as follows: fabric 1 wrong side up, layer inter-lining on top and flatten to ensure no creases, and edges align, lay fabric 2, right side up, on top, and flatten once again.

Step 5. Stitch or overlock around all sides, ensuring stitch line is 5mm from edge.
Step 6. Note: For confident sewers with a binding foot, binding can be stitched with stitching showing. The following method is for concealed stitching. Starting in the middle, open up the Bias Binding and with right sides facing, and the first 8mm folded in to hide raw edge, stitch one side along the crease (6mm allowance).
Mitre corners by stitch along one side until 6mm from the end. Fasten off. Fold corner as per diagram, and resume stitching from 6mm in and repeat all the way around the wrap. Overlap the end with the folded start, and trim.

Step 9. Centre the tie over the wrap 9cms down from top edge. Sew 2 lines of stitch 6mm from and on each side of the centre line.
