Hate bias tape bindings

Today’s fact: I hate attaching bias tape binding to my sewn objects.

I get how to do it in theory, but sitting down to actually get the binding in place, neatly, is another thing…

I spent an hour and a half yesterday trying to attach binding to a placemat I’ve made. I pinned, I sewed, I folded and pinned again, I sewed. And sighed. And ripped. (And did I mention that I’m using black thread on black fabric?) And did it all over.

In the end, I came out semi-satisfied, but mostly broken. And I have another five placemats to go before Christmas Eve when they will be gifted to my parents. If all goes well.

  1. Bindings are the worst thing ever. I guess practice makes perfect, but practice is no fun! I do hope you got the placemats all finished!
