Trisha from TLC Stitches shows how you can achieve the look of a piped seam without the fuss of creating and stitching in a separate piece of piping. Instead, she uses her “faux piping” technique. She shows it as a binding for a quilt, but this same finish would work on any straight seam. It would be gorgeous on purses, pillowcases, curtains, etc. Go to the tutorial.
