How To Use Bias Binding

Bias Binding is a strip of fabric cut diagonally, it is generally used for covering raw edges on fabric, but can also be used as decoration on clothing!

Knowing how to work with Bias Binding is a huge benefit as a designer or as a crafter! If you don’t have the use of an over locker, binding will be a great option for you to have, as it is quick, easy and very effective!

Below I have created a step by step guide on how to use Bias Binding, I have also created a video to go with this post, so you can watch or read, it’s all up to you!

It is as simple as that! Once you get the hang of it, you will want to use it in all of your projects!!

This Bias Binding post and video is part of a new series over on my YouTube channel called Minute Lessons, each episode will consist of a 1 to 2 min lesson on different aspects of sewing and garment construction!

I hope you enjoyed this post!
