The people next door painted their daughter’s room brown and pink in the fall, and then they searched high and low for bedding to go with it. No luck. So you know what we did. We picked out fabric and got sewing. And here is the final product. I love the window pane effect.
And I also love the binding. There is nothing better than a striped binding, is there? Well, maybe a bias-cut plaid. Oh, speaking of which– my mom told me that she used her friend’s bias-strip-cutting-ruler (not sure what the technical name is), and she loved it. She ended up cutting out the bias strips and making 3 bias bindings on Saturday. She also said that you can cut a bias binding for a queen with 20 inches of fabric (xWOF).
Sounds pretty awesome. Note to self: find this ruler.
Did I cut bias binding here? No, thankfully, because the stripes were printed correctly. But when I make bibs or things that don’t have a straight edge, I do cut bias binding. How about you? Do you make bias bindings, or do you stay on the straight and narrow?
