Bias Binding:

Class workshop include instructions for making your own bias binding and fusible tape as an alternative to purchasing pre-made bias. There are two methods, you may choose either or try both.

Either method requires:

  • 1/2 yd fabric for bias
  • 1yd fusible webbing or ONE 40ft pack of 5mm fusible tape
  • Method One only: requires a 1/4" or 3/8" bias bar
