Bias Binding made easy with the MadamSew Adjustable Bias Binding Foot
If you have ever needed to bind yards of circle skirt hem or ruffles for a summer frock then you will understand what a godsend the bias binding foot is.
Rather than sewing to the back of the fabric, then flipping and sewing your binding again to the front this nifty foot from Madam Sew halves your sewing effort and time!
Yup in one smooth process you sew both sides of the binding at once. Perfect binding every time, once you have mastered the use of this foot.
You have your binding, either shop bought or home made. The binding channels can be adusted to fit the width of your binding with thescrew to the front right of the foot. This is very clearly shown in the video tutorial for the foot.
Snip your binding to a point and slide the two halves of the binding into the top and bottom channels with the fold to the right.
Gently feed the binding throughand inder the matel portion of the foot. You are now ready to insert the main body of fabric being bound. Slip it between the two edges of the binding into the center groove of the plastic portion of the presser foot.
You should now have a bias binding sandwich. I tend to pin or clip the binding in place when I first attach the foot to my sewing machine.
Once in place check the needle lines up as you want. If you need to adust you can either use the left or right needle positions or the smaller screw at the back of the foot will allow the whole plastic portion, and the fabric it now hold, to move to the correct position. Make sure you tighten this screw back up again or the results won't be plesant!
You can now sew away, making sure the binding and fabric feed together through the presser foot.
Once you have completed your binding yuo will need to snip away any excess binding and pull the work to the back of your sewing machine to remove it without damage to your work.
The video demonstrates how to create a mire corner for your projects, which I advise you to check out once you have mastered the basics of this foot.
