Bias Binding

by Sophea

Unluckily for me this costume required large amounts of bias binding but I guess that now means that I should be pretty good at making the stuff. True bias – which all of it was – is cut across the grain of the fabric. Each strip will have flexible stretch in comparison to the warp or weft of the material. So after cut lengths and lengths, I then pulled the fabric through a tiny little machine and pressed it as it came out the other side, creating long lengths of bias binding.
