Would you mind sharing your binding techniques and tips with me? What width binding do you use? Bias or straight of grain? Do you cut and then sew strips together or make a continuous binding? Scrappy? Do you use a walking foot when you apply your binding? Do you hand stitich it to the back or machine stitch it? Do you use a decorative machine stitch and sew the front and back at the same time? Have you seen this over on the Piece O’ Cake blog? Very clever! Or how ’bout this?! I’ve done it with smaller projects and LOVE it! And, some of you know how much I love Sharon’s techniques and my Elmer’s School glue!!! I’m ALWAYS looking for new ways to do things…
I have my own style of doing binding. It’s a bit mind bending. I usually make bias binding. Continuous bias binding. I sew and press two seams. That’s it. My hand applique students can atest to this. (Are any of you reading this…?! Care to comment…?)
It’s cool and rainy here today. I’m going to do some sewing prep using my iron. I need to generate some heat! Soup making later. ; D Enjoy your day and take a few stitches when you get the chance!
