I’m trying to get my kids swimming towels to stay on better by putting in snaps and armholes. I outlined rectangular holes with a piece of cellophane tape, stay-stitched the edge, and cut out the hole. First I tried binding the edge with my machines overcast stitch, but that looked terrible. Then applied Wright’s extra-wide double fold bias binding tape to the edge. It was a disaster. One side looked great, but on the other side, the corners were was drowning in bunched-up bias binding tape at the corners and there was a good 3/8 inch of excess tape between my stitching line and the edge of the tape.
Can anyone suggest a better way to do this? The towel is very thick, and the armholes need to look good on both sides.
