I have to fiddle with my tensions and presser foot tension a little, then help it out a little when I get to a thick part by lifting the foot and pushing it through a little. I'm not sure this is the "right" way to go about it, but I just try and go slow so I don't hiccup too much and miss stitches or get jammed.

Normally I don't use a snappi or pins since the ones I use are the Flip Organics...I just fold them and hold them in place with the cover. Actually a Flip or Best Bottom is what I normally put over these!

Totally! Even just a zig zag stitch would work. I love the look of binding them, I'd love to see if you do!

Teehee, it just looks that awesome! I have one that I put elastic into but I can't seem to get the right elastic or tension or length or something, so I'm using them without elastic until I can master the finer points.
