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).

Make-up Clutter

Before the re-decluttering begins

Today I pulled out all of my makeup to re-declutter it all. I've gone through it a few times but this time I did much better, mostly because I was prepared to swatch everything.

I have a dream of having only one of each item and loving all of it. The first step is to get rid of all the stuff I don't use.

I'm loathe to promise another post as there are several I've promised you and not delivered on (yet) but I'm still recovering from this dreaded lurgy so I'm too tired to edit images and write about today's big makeup purging session.

I shall bring you more tomorrow!
