Bias binding or bias tape is used in so many different techniques in sewing. You can use it as a trim for quilts, placemats or even garments. Or use it to make hemming easier. It's often used in simple arm hole (armscye) bindings. Most frequently, of course, we see it on quilts. So skip the prepackaged stuff and make your own!
