    Binding Joining the ends

    I have always had a difficult time joining the ends of the binding.
    This starts out joining the strips but # 3-4 is the joining ends.
    Hope this helps others.
    It worked great on a binding I am finishing today.

    This looks so practical and very to do. In my mind, this method makes sense.

    The clearest way I've come across is to overlap the ends by the width of the binding, and cut. Then you can bend them upwards (terrible explanation, I know), overlap, and sew the diagonal, trim, and when you place the binding back down it's just the right length and it fits.

    I do it per the instructions Holice posted here on the board. I always have to get my instructions out and have them in front of me, but it gets the job done in a way I can understand. I don't know why my brain as so much trouble with joining binding ends!

    Good one. I seem to always get confused using msqc's tutorial.I think it's the camera angle when jenny uses the binding tool. This video makes it very simple ,easy.Thanks!

    This seems like an accurate way to do it. I usually just sew a diagonal line "from OR to FL" then trim after. Many times I sew it the wrong way, so maybe trimming it ahead of time would make it easier for me to visualize.
