    Does anyone have any tips or links to tutorials for binding curved corners ?

    I just can not seem to get them right. Maybe it is the material I am using, it is a nylon ribbon. Perhaps a more cotton type one would follow the curves better.

    I am trying to do them similar to the Hazard 4 Ipad Sleeve.

    I would say that tucking and folding evenly across the curve is what you want. Measure, fold repeat. You could also try ironing the curve and gently stretching it if you can.

    I've been sewing 45+ years, and finishing is some of the most important stuff. Doing it right makes a big difference.
