I bought the bias tape binder for my Bernina and practised making bibs. Just plain, with or without lining and the embroidered the unlined ones. Used my Brother 190D and some of the inbuilt designs.

Wow! Martine, these are beautifully executed. I have one of those feet somewhere in my selection of sewing machine feet, but haven’t used it as yet. One day maybe!!! Love Chris

It only makes sense to get them out of the box when you are doing a lot. What you gain by using it, you lose by finding and installing it :)

These are so cute and the binding really sets the designs off. I have been sewing since I was 13 and all that time, I have never been very good at sewing on bias binding - it always ends up wonky!! These are perfect.

My mum always insisted on me doing the things she did not like: pinning, basting, hand sewing and doing buttonholes by hand since I learned to do that - she had a machine that could only do a straight stitch until well after I was married.
I had bought a machine that could do zigzag and buttonholes - so she still let me do those :)

Your bibs are very nice. I don't have a bias maker but I will look into getting one. I have a great-granddaughter expected soon. Grandma better get busy!

Thank you. My oldest grands are 18 (a boy) and 18 next month (a girl) so I'll have to wait a while before sewing for a great-grandchild.

Lovely work Martine and more stash reduced? I have bought fabric for years 'as a investment' ha ha and now I am happily using it. Think there are many designs in my machines that I have never used and probably never will

I have beautiful wool fabrics, too expensive to cut :), then I decided I had to slim down one or two sizes and it is still in a box, looking great.
I am reducing my cotton and towelling but the project more often than not seems to need a colour I don't have or have not enough of, to set it off nicely.

I too have expensive wool fabric waiting... I do enjoy embroidering on wool so maybe some will be used

Great job, Martine.. How do you like your new binding accessory?

I was thinking the same I just ordered one for Epic girly

It's very sturdy and works well, although I have to practise tight curves a bit more - probably just reduce the speed. It is very easy to turn corners, nice for square coasters etc. I have the number 88 one, for unfolded 32 mm strips (1,25"). I found out I can use 20 mm prefolded bias tape as well.
The Husqvarna one I have only accomodates prefolded tape.

Great idea and very well done. You gave me ideas what to use my D designs for. Thanks for the motivation

sew cute, and I know the binder will come in handy, I don't use my binder very often , easier by hand but I do love many of the special feet they make sewing a joy.

Thank you. Usually I use oher machines, but they were in my cold sewing room and the Brother is very light compared to the others so I carried that one to the warmer living room - and to be honest I have not stitched out all the D designs yet..
