Seam-Binding Cake-Stand Skirt and Chandelier
Inexpensive seam binding -- normally used to conceal the seams inside tailored garments -- is all you need to dress up a Mother's Day brunch table. Use coordinating colors of the multipurpose trim to make flirty skirts for a pair of stacked cake stands, and then continue the theme with a free-flowing seam-binding "chandelier."
- Seam binding in 3 colors
- White cake stand
