Video Tutorial | Bias Binding Part 2

Those of you that have been reading this blog for a while may remember a video I posted about making bias binding. Well it was always supposed to have a second part that showed you how I apply the binding to my garments and now it finally does! Woohoo!

In this video I also cover how to extend the binding on the edge of a cami top in order to create a strap like you commonly see in ready-to-wear.

Check out the video below and feel free to ask me any questions you may have! For any of you who are interested in having a look at the binding foot that I don’t use but do mention in the video you can see it here (this is a universal foot for all machines) and the Bernina edge-stitching foot / top-stitching foot I am actually using at one point is this one.

I will be trying to make videoΒ tutorials regularly from now on so if you want to subscribe to my youtube channel then you can do that here.

Thanks for watching!

  1. Thanks for such an informative video ami! I really love how detailed and clear in you are in your video, makes such a difference when learning tips and tricks online. You really make me want to start blogging about my own crafting!

  2. Well done! Informative, organized, and you have anticipated questions and clearly answered them. I look forward to more videos. For example, applying piping to a garment, various types of darts, and pattern “hacking.”

  3. Great tutorial,very well presented, I love it!!.
    Look forward to watching more. Piping would be a useful tutorial.
    Happy Youtubing!!!

  4. Excellent video, thank you. I know you have 2 on bias binding, but could I suggest bias binding circles and sharp curves. I find these difficult.

  5. Thankyou for your video. It was very clear. More please. It helps take the confusion out of written instructions for a beginner like myself. I have been knitting for over 40 years but have just returned to sewing and loving it. Making my first skirt since 1982. Wish me luck.


    • Ah good luck Tracy and well done for picking it up again- I’m sure it’ll be like riding a bike! Altho hopefully not actually as I am constantly falling off mine! Hehe! πŸ™‚

  6. Thanks for the another great tutorial. If you made your top, was it self drafted, or is there a pattern?

    • Ah thanks Valerie and you are welcome, just published a blog post on the top- it is self drafted but I am in the process of grading it into different sizes and trying to sort out printing and launching some of my patterns πŸ™‚

  7. This is a great video Ami, I can’t wait to see more of your tutorials you have a great teaching style. I also would really love to see how you do binding on armholes and necklines as this can sometimes be a little tricky! I’m loving your top that you had on in the video, did you draft it yourself? Thanks again Ami for being such an inspiration xxx

  8. This is a fantastic tutorial Ami. I Amy following it to apply bias binding to a cami top I’m currently making for my daughter. Thank you so much. Ann x

  9. Thank you – an excellent pair of video tutorials, I love the hints and tips you give and how clear you make every step. More please!

  10. hi, i have recently used my machine to do some free motion embroidery and now ive flicked the switch to raise the feed dogs again they are not gripping my material very well. ive tried flicking it off and on again and im sewing with cotton fabric which normally grips really well but its slipping all over the place. have you come across this problem yourself? i wondered if you had any thoughts on it? many thanks, linda. x

  11. Have watched both videos today and am now the proud owner of a Colette Sorbetto – your instructions are so clear. Thank you so much for going to the time and effort to help beginners like me!

  12. I’m a beginner and making my first pot holder. I practiced cutting bias binding on scrap fabric. Although I made a lot of mistakes, I feel a little bit more prepared. Your instructions for attaching the binding was very helpful. Thank you!

  13. Thanks so much for this – it really helped in the first top using bias binding that I’ve made. Also the first time using chiffon so really valued having you holding my hand along the way with this!
    Moving on to Fun with Fit now.
