Q : Hi savita, lovely tutorial. Few qeuries. please help. 1. Will this method work for long length of dori . Say 40Inches. 2. If we make bias strip by joining strips will this method work ? 3. Can we achieve the same result using a loop turner ? - Diya (5 years ago)
A :

Hi, thanks.

Yes, you can do long fabric cord too but cutting in bias is important.

Yes, you can join bias strips. Iron the seams flat after joining. However, it is better to avoid many joints as that could make it a little difficult while turning the cord. 

I have never used a loop turner but it should make your job easy.
