Last Part

Sew across the line.

Check to make sure the binding is sewn correctly and not twisted. Trim excess leaving 1/4" seam allowance. Finger press the seam open. Fold the binding in half.

Stitch binding down.

That's it...works for me...I hope you all like it as much as I do.

What a cool tool . . . . I will have to get one of those and try it! I love all crafty gadgets. Thanks for the great tutorial.

I do it just that way but I don't use the tool. I use my small 2 1/2' square ruler and I make mine 2 3/8th so that's the length I cut mine. I still always have to open them both up and do the "kiss together and twist" motion to get it right so I can sew it. I usually just aim and shoot for the corner after pinning. Thanks for the tips!
