Sewing Mattress Pads

I've been meaning to get to these for months; there have just been greater priorities.

It was my first time using bias tape. I'm officially in love with it; it creates such a clean edge.  

Two ways I discovered how to use it:

When covering the end of one tape with another, make sure the top layer doesn't go against the direction of sewing. In this photo, the pin arrow shows the direction of sew.

Also, there's no need to cut corners when I can just tuck them in and have the seam hold it in place. So much less work, it's wonderful.
