Binding bias refers to the tendency to favor certain information over other information. For example, if you want to write an essay on a topic such as “What makes a good leader?” you might lean towards writing about leaders who have succeeded in their careers. This would mean that you wouldn’t include stories about failed leaders or those who didn’t succeed at all.
Binding bias occurs because our brains tend to focus on things that are important to us. If you want to get better grades in school, you probably spend time thinking about studying and learning new material. In contrast, if you don’t care much about your grades, you might not put much effort into studying.
When writing an argumentative paper, you should try to present both sides of an issue. If you only present one side, readers won’t be able to form their own opinions. They will simply accept whatever you say without question.
How To Use Bias Binding?
Bias binding can be used in many different ways. For a raw edge that won’t fray, attach the strip and fold it around or behind the edges of your garment. They are excellent for finishing curved edges since they have a natural stretch. Even very stretchy fabrics, such as jerseys, can be attached to them. The project is also an excellent way to use up leftover fabric.
To Buy Or To Make Your Own Bias Binding?
There are different widths and colors of prefold bias binding available, but you can make your own bias binding very quickly. Bias tape makers are those little helpers we all know.
Double fold bias tape can be made with them. Cutting fabric strips with a rotary cutter and cutting mat works well and is relatively fast. Choose a contrasting fabric to add a little fun, or use the main fabric to add a subtle finish.
How To Make Your Own Trifold Bias Binding?
We make bias binding ourselves. It is difficult to get a clean and flat finish with regular bias binding because it is too wide for invisible applications. We use a trifold method to make a bias binding rather than a single or double fold. A rotary cutter and a cutting mat were used to cut a 20 mm strip of fabric. The ends of the strips can be sewn together if we need longer strips. You can use the continuous method if you prefer to sew the ends together. However, you must cut the strips by hand and sew them together if you choose to use the continuous method. The strips are folded in three equal parts after they have been cut.
- Press the first raw edge inwards.
- Then fold and press again.
Attaching The Bias Binding
- Pin the tape to the right side of the garment after folding it open. The bias tape is accompanied by a small piece of fabric. We usually cut my garments with a seam allowance of 1 cm, and the bias tape fold must be 1 cm from the edge. The bias tape’s edge will be trimmed after stitching it in place.
Your main fabric should be stitched in the fold and 1cm from the edge.
- Make sure the edge is trimmed before pressing.
- Make sure not to iron out the second fold of the bias tape when pressing it away from the garment.
- The bias binding should now be folded and pressed towards the stitches.
- The seam allowance should be folded under and pressed again, along with some pins. Bias tape seams are usually folded towards the right side of the garment so that they are invisible from the right side.
- Stitch the bias binding in place on the wrong side of the garment. As soon as the garment edge is aligned with the edge of the presser foot, the needle is positioned close to the folded edge of the bias binding. On the right side of the garment, following the edge will result in an even stitch line, and since you are working on the wrong side, you do not have to worry about not getting caught by the bias binding.
- Make sure you give your work one more press before you enjoy it!
A Few Tips Before You Storm The Sewing Machine
- Getting the best results requires narrow binding!

Next, sew one strip to the top edge of the quilt, then another strip down the center. Finally, stitch the remaining two strips together along the bottom edge of the quilt.
How To Make Continuous Bias Binding
The best way to make continuous bias binding is to use a sewing machine. Sewing machines are handy for making bias binding, which is used to bind two pieces of fabric together at right angles. This technique is often used when making quilts, pillowcases, tablecloths, curtains, etc.
How To Sew Bias Binding

How To Make Bias Binding Strips
Bias binding strips are used for making bias binding. They are made from plastic which has been heated up and then cooled down. The plastic is cut into small pieces and then put together again. This process makes them solid and durable.
How To Fold Fabric For Bias Binding
The first step in folding fabric for bias binding is to cut out the pattern pieces from the fabric. Then, lay the fabric flat and use pins to mark where the folds should be made. Next, place one edge of the fabric under the presser foot and align the other edge along the edge of the sewing machine bed. Use the needle to sew through all layers of the fabric at once. Once finished, remove the pins and trim off any excess fabric.
Bias binding is a great way to finish off the raw edges of your fabric while also adding a decorative touch. It’s a simple process that anyone can do, and it can really make a difference in the overall look of your finished product.
