Its a continuation on my previous posting on my scrap clearance project. Now I am going to clear off my 2 inches binding scrap. I have collected all binding leftover in one shoe box, so that easier for me to pick any of them incase i need it urgently... some long enough to cover for a small project and some are merely two or three inches leftover.. i kept even the smallest one like 2 inches leftover binding haha.. I am a bit stingy person right.
Here we are... I sew the fabric at random... colourful right... and then folded it by ironing.
Fold it into two and begin to sew it after 3 to 4 inch from the beginning of the binding tape.
Sila pastikan fabric bawah dijahit yerr... additional tip on this, masa ironing make sure lipat betul2 sama atas dan bawah ok
Stop at the corner... make sure matikan jahitan yerr
The fold it like this
Cover it up and start sewing on it.. until all four corners
Leave few inches of the fabric unsewn and join both the end and the beginning of the binding tape.
Cut the remaining fabric
Complete the binding process
Here is the result..
Kalau dibandingkan dengan cara biasa, the one you sew at the front side and handsewn the other side, this binding method reveals the stitches, kurang cantik skitlah, but much more easier, especially with a fast and furious scrap project like this hehe
Dah siap 3, another 2 have to put on hold first, till I get enough "2 inches" binding leftover hahaha (kedekut betul nak cut a fresh new binding tape kan)
Additional tips on sewing a thin fabric... use your finger to adjust the front and the back of you binding tape
With that you can easily get almost the same width for the front and the back of the binding tape..
And pleaseee be reminded.. if you are doing it for the first time, anda akan mengalami jahitan yang terjatuh dari landasan hihihihi.. i.e. jahitan sebelah belakang tak kena, or jahitan yang terlalu jauh ke dalam. Jangan putus asa yerr... Practice makes perfect, and you will save much time by doing this binding method.
Happy weekend my dear cyber friends...
