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).

Scratchy

...because a flower is prettier to look at then a tissue box

I'm sick - which explains my lack of motivation late last week - the scratchy throat, stuffy head, running a temperature kind of sick.

When I'm sick I like to bundle myself up on the couch, watch some costumey shows and do a spot of crochet. But I can't crochet because of my stupid shoulder and I can't watch shows because hubby is working from home.

My head is full of fuzzy and I can't think clearly enough to write coherently structured, amazingly awesome posts, or even just plain sensical posts. (Surley sensical is a word right? Nonsensical is a word so sensical must be, however spell check disagrees. Pfffft to spell check!)

Anyway, that's if for me for today. I'm going to go and snuggle up on the couch with the dogs and do as little as possible.
