Satin Bias Binding - 3/4in
Satin Bias Binding 3/4in (Approx 2cm)
Bias tape or bias binding is a narrow strip of fabric, cut on the bias. The strip's fibres, being at 45 degrees to the length of the strip, makes it stretch as well as more fluid and more drapeable compared to a strip that is cut on the grain. Many strips can be pieced together into a long "tape." The tape's width varies from about 1/2" to about 3" depending on applications. Bias tape is used in making piping, binding seams, finishing raw edges, etc. It is often used on the edges of quilts, placemats, and bibs, around armhole and neckline edges instead of a facing, and as a simple strap or tie for casual bags or clothing.
