In this tutorial I will show you how to make and sew your own binding. This way you can add that finishing touch to anything you sew.
Disclaimer: I didn't cut out this binding on bias since the fabric I was using for this was already super stretchy. If you're using a non stretch fabric, then cut it on bias.
1. Cut out your binding piece and iron it like this:
(Make one side slightly longer than the other because that will be the side not visible)
I made this binding to be 1/2", so I cut out a 2" strip to give me enough room to fold in.
2. Pin around your binding & sew. Leave 2 pieces hanging to close off your binding.
3. Sew as shown below.
4. Pin down & sew it shut.
