How To Make Continuous Bias Binding From A Rectangle

There are several ways to go about cutting and sewing bias binding tape. They've all got their pro's and con's. I'm going to show you my favourite method, but first I'll discuss the strip-by-strip method and the continuous method using a square of fabric.

Whichever method you use you'll start with deciding how wide you want your finished binding to be and multiply that by four. For example if you want a 1/4 inch wide finish on your hem you want to cut 1 inch wide strips. (unless you want double fold bias binding in which case you multiply by six).

2 Minute Salad Cream Recipe

A good salad dressing is the simplest way to purfylle a salad. Salad cream is so tasty and easy to mix through, which makes it a great salad dressing choice, however a jar never seems to go very far.

Mayonnaise might last longer, but is bland and the thick consistency can make it difficult to mix through salad.

In a moment of inspiration hubby made his own salad cream. It tasted great and we keep making it for our salads.

This is a super easy, super fast recipe that you make up as you need it. When I say it takes 2 minutes to make, most of that time is spent digging around in your fridge and cupboards pulling out all the ingredients and spoons and things.

As usual my measurements are very precise (not at all), so I thought I had better provide a measurement conversion chart.

dallop = approximately one table spoon
splash = 1-3 tablespoons
some = to taste or about a teaspoon
sprinkle = to taste
