2️. Lay the fabric into a straight line, creating a fold. Ensure the needles will stitch over the edge of the piece and there will be no holes.

3️. Secure the folded fabric with your fingers and continue stitching at a steady pace along the entire length of the second edge. Ensure you place the stitches close to the edge of the fabric.

4️. Give the finished corner a good press. There should be no folds or wrinkles left after the pressing.
