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).

    1. It is a very popular place for family's to take their children to see the ducks. From this angle you wouldn't know there are people everywhere.

    1. Nope. No editing other then adding the text. I didn't even crop or boost shadows and highlights which I almost always do.

  12. This shot is a bit spooky at first--I thought it was a swamp until I read the comments. It's quite pretty and a unique view.
