Needing binding to complete it and wanting to use something cool without costing a fortune and importantly, avoiding the shops, I thought I'd knock some up myself. Now this isn't a new activity for me, but I have today made my longest ever piece of continuous bias binding.
I didn't expect it to be that long. I just kept ironing the strip that I made from about 1 meter worth of a lovely, pre-washed cotton floral. It's one of my favourite fabrics and has been put to good use. I think I paid about $5 meter for it from my local asian fabric shop and this is some of the last. Needless to say I won't be needing to make binding again for a while and EVERYTHING will be bound with this stuff :)
I'll have to post later this week about the lovely new dress that I made for myself. Unfortunately it is so grotty it needs a proper wash and iron before showing you.
Also, if you are in Sydney or more specifically the south/southwest area, the Sutherland/St George Brown Owls are catching up at Oatley Hotel. Feel free to come along and craft and chat and chat and chat and maybe craft....
