To get us started with Friday activities, we produced a bias binding sample on a curved seam ensuring that the fabric was cut on the bias to allow stretch. The 3 simple steps are:
1. Sew right side to wrong side using 1cm seam allowance.
2. Reduce bulk and turn over fabric to just cover the stitching from seam allowance and press.
3. Top stitch the insecure side close to the edge.
I have tried it on a straight line but it has challenged me to sew in a curved line as the fabric twists and moves so it has helped me with positioning on the sewing machine and given me another alternative to facings. It's quick and easy, why not try it if you can't face a facing!
