i ADORE this pattern - have you made any of these?  i'd love to see pictures.  are they made with different fabrics on either side?  what's this stick-on braid stuff?  maybe i'm just clueless - look at all my questions.

Could the "braid stuff" be binding??  You buy it near the thread, comes in different colors and widths. Even if that's not what they are talking about, it would work for this project.

years ago the did sell fancy braid that was prefolded like quilt binding today.  they now carry fleece binding which is narrower & would work well with this project. Cheesy

I don't think wright's makes the fold over braid anymore, but if you go to the section in a fabric store that has the dress trims you might be able to find the braid there.  However, I have made pretty much that same pattern (only I didn't have that pattern I just made it) And you can use wright's bias tape and it works great too.   I prefer the extra wide double fold just because it gives you a little more room to work with.  Also you could make your own bias tape to match if you can't find one you like.  And the fleece binding would probably work great too, I haven't tried it though.

i used to make these all the time back in high school.
the double fold bias tape is the best to use, but you can use random ribbon, just fold in half and iron (light, light heat over a scrap of fabric) to make the crease.
