How To: Bias Binding

This is on the list of things I wish I'd figured out ages ago. In an effort to remind me to make my own and to share the wealth, here's some basic instructions!

Rotary cutter or Scissors (if you use scissors, tailor's chalk will be necessary as cutting beside a ruler will drive you mental)

~Find the grain of the fabric (usually running parallel to the selvage edge of your fabric - the sealed side not the one they cut in the shop)

~ Draw a line at 45 degree angle from this.
~ Cut along the line (or just run your rotary cutter alongside the ruler)
~ Cut the desired width - I like using the width of my ruler.

Et voila - your own bias binding!
