Bias Binding and Bias Makers

Bias Tape, or Bias Binding, is made from strips of fabric that is cut on the bias (on the cross of the grain of fabric) which gives it a slight stretch. Bias binding is used because it will bend to a curved edge of fabric without puckering, and this makes it ideal to bind raw edges that are cut on a curve, such as round armholes or round a neck.  

Bias Binding is available to buy ready made by the metre or you can make your own with the help of a Bias Maker.
