Your question: How do I sew my own binding?

Is it cheaper to make your own bias tape?

With a few tools and an iron, a 1/2 yard of fabric is transformed into 9 yards of double-fold bias tape! It’s even cheaper than the pre-packaged stuff (which is typically 3 yards in length).

How much fabric do I need for continuous bias binding?

360″ of bias x 4 1/2″ wide = 1620 ÷ 42″ wide fabric = 38.57″ ÷ 36 = 1.07 yards of fabric. 220″ of bias x 3″ wide = 660 / 42″ wide fabric = 15.72″ / 36 = 0.436 yards.

Are bias tape makers worth it?

They are 100% worth it! A quality product that produces great results and is fast and easy! Now that your bias tape is all ready, all you need is a pretty pattern to use!

Can I use ribbon as bias tape?

Using commercially available ribbon is an alternative to using bias tape or manually cut straight- or bias-cut binding strips. More importantly, it can be more convenient to use as it is pre-cut and unrolls from a spool. Ribbon also adds a distinctive contrast depending on the project.
