I used this pink Gingham shirt from the Op Shop to cut up and make bias binding. It did mean that I needed quite a lot of seams but sewing properly on the diagonal it was all good.
So I unpicked the shirt and darts, ironed and cut 1 3/4 inch strips. Then I put it through my bias binding tool and ended up with the roll above. I am using it to make detail on a nighty. I love love bias binding, be it plain or funky you can use it for so much. It made me want to make heaps as it is quick, satisfying and fun.
The tool did cost me about $14 but I have well and truly got my monies worth.
