    Continuous Bias Binding

    HEEELLLLLP! Okay, I watch the video over and over and have thoroughly confused myself on the simplest things! First, what side do I draw the lines on? From there, I got the rest

    I was SO hoping to finish 3 tops today but can't figure out the continuous bias binding ... slmbo!

    AIYA! (that's a Hawai'ian expression of exasperation)

    Re: Continuous Bias Binding

    Are you doing it the way where you start with a large square that you cut into 2 triangles and then sew them at the top? If you do, you'll know what I'm talking about. And then you have this weird shape like a large almost parrellagram? If you do, then you'd draw your lines on the wrong side.

      In the video, it looks like Jenny has them drawn on the right side of the fabric because she has it turned right side out to cut the strips and the seams are on the inside of the tube during cutting

        ok I've got to go look at the tut on here. I draw mine on the wrong side and my seams are on the outside when I cut.
        It's interesting to see how many different ways a binding can be made.

          Trish, I really think it can be done either way......I've been pondering it anyway.
          I think as long as you have the lines and cut on the lines it can be on either side.
          If they are on the wrong side, you would just have to leave your 'tube' wrong side out, if lines
          are drawn on the right side you would turn it right side out.
