Some things need bias binding for that bit of colour, that perfect finish. I’ve never been a fan of the mass produced stuff, not only because it only comes in sold colours, but also because it tends to always be made from polyester, giving that harsh, scratchy finish.
I recently found a great place for gorgeous self patterned cotton yardage and coordinating bias binding. It’s called A Day in the Country, and you can get it here, amongst other places. I have four bolts of the fabric and bias, but nothing in purple, which I really needed.
So I got my fabric. I got my tool. And now I have my bias.
