Quilt Binding Question -- Can You Help?

I made this octagon table center thingy. I'd love to make more, but I need help with the binding at the EIGHT corners! How do I turn the binding to make that 45-degree angle on these non-90 degree corners? When I get them to work well, it's always a happy accident which I don't know how to reproduce.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Pictures would rock, as I'm a visual learner.


The corners actually look decent in this photo, but they're bumpy and obviously done by an amateur.

I'll send a couple of pictures I just took. Here's a link to a tutorial with more pictures. Essentially, it's applied the same way, except instead of folding the binding back at 90 degrees, fold it back to line up with the next side.
