One step bias binding application

 I said I would put up how I apply my bias binding in one step. This shows how lazy clever I am!


Firstly, if you put the fabric on the bias binding (bought bias binding here) past the centre to touch the  binding edge on the other side like it shows above.


Then start sewing your bias about 1 cm before the attaching fabric and with a bit of a tail... I find this helps place the bias in the right spot and stops that fabric down the hole problem. If you notice on the left to the photo (unfortunately upside down and unable to change??) the bottom part of the bias extends a bit further on the underside of the fabric and so if you concentrate on getting the top edge nice and straight, the bottom catches automatically. 


 You can just see above how when I moved onto the second pocket the bottom edge of the bias extends just past the top.


This is how it looks on the top and the underneath. All caught up. So that's my lazy quick and easy way to attach bias binding. Is this how you do it?

  1. Very clever - I have to admit I hate sewing bias binding, one of my "things". Your technique looks good, will have to give it a go.

    1. Yeah, have a go with some scrap. If you know you'll catch the bottom it's easy to sew straight on the top.

  3. I have often thought of this approach but never tried it. I usually sew it on the right side (RS together) and hand sew on the wrong side. Thanks for the nice tutorial.
