I got a question last night on how to sew 2 bias strips together so they 'match'. I went out on the internet and was amazed at how many tutorials were show a different way than I do it. Not a major difference, just more tedious in my opinion.
So I decided the best way to explain this was to take some photo!
You can sew any 2 strips on an angle.. borders, bias binding, bias for stems.. does not matter I do them all the same.
First I have the 2 strips in question. They do NOT need to be slanted edges, but since the question was on bias I did that. I do the same thing for straight of grain binding.. but the edges will be blunt.
Now I flip the orange one right side UP, put the red one on top right side DOWN. I have them BOTH extending I do NOT try and match that angle.. that is crazy detailed and causes problems.. we don't like problems do we?
Let me know if you try it!
I put a new category on the RIGHT side bar for TUTORIALS to link to these posts quickly!
ps... check out Dionne's website BEGGING AND PLEADING video to me.. this is a RIOT!
