Learn to Sew: Clipping Corners

When you have two seams that are meeting at a corner, you may want to clip the corners to remove bulk. When this is turned right side out, I'll have a nice sharp point at that corner.

Clipping the corners is an easy trick to make a project more professional.

You can see that I backstitched and that those overlap. Now you'll see why!

Start with a corner seam.
With a sharp pair of scissors, cut the corners off. I leave about 1/4" at the corner. Don't cut into the seam or you'll have a hole!

This is the finished clipped corner. The backstitiching reinforces that seam/corner.
INSIDE UNCLIPPED: Turned right side out - this is the inside view - you can see a lot of fabric bunched up in that corner.
INSIDE CLIPPED: Turned right side out - this is the inside view - you can see that the bulk has been removed. It will now be pointy and flat!

You'll end up with this - a beautiful point!
