Usually in the stores, the piping is a solid color and I personally prefer a print for my purse trim. Wrap-N-Fuse piping makes it so easy to make your own piping - just cut a strip of fabric that you want to use and, using the tip of your iron, press it on to the cording. I like the fact that I don't have to change the foot on my sewing machine because there is no sewing!!
Below is an example of how I used the Wrap-N-Fuse:
The top of the front pocket is in a green and pink flowered print that matches the pocket sides and the lining inside the bag.
This fusible piping maker comes in 3/16" (5mm) width and 2.2 yards (2m), which is enough for me to use for several bags!
