    That's interesting because there is a June Taylor 2 1/2" X30" ruler called "Binding Buddy". I don't know who was first, but it looks as though someone may have a copyright infringement.

    This other one looks like a useful tool, too, although I don't think I'd want it hanging on me. I just drop the binding in a bucket on the floor to my right, and it flows neatly enough for my purposes.

    there are actually several tools called binding buddy..a copyright does not cover a name, that would be a patent and even then, different items can have the same name...so who knows...
    I just called this a binding buddy for lack of a real name for it...

    I posted pictures of a binding caddy I made from a wire hanger and a paper towel tube. Not as fancy as the binding buddies you showed, but it works fine for me and it was free! Here's the link:

    here are the basic directions!

    the fabric size I use is 9" x 12". I fold one edge of the long side over and iron and then apply elmers glue. Roll your pool noodle into the fabric and then glue the ironed edge down. Tuck the ends into the holes of the pool noodle and squirt some glue down in there to hold them in....DONE....

    when you make your binding, pin the beginning end to your "binding spool" and then as you press your binding, roll it up. Pin at the end when you are done and your binding will stored clean, press and ready to ROLL when you need it!

I've got a collection on a peg board made out of fabric I saw (mostly stripes of some sort) that I thought would make a good binding when I bought it.
    perfect!

    I use them all the time. When I have larger quilt blocks put together; especially if I'm taking them to class, etc. Or when I have material that I have ironed and want to take to class. If I wrap it around them first I might have to do a touch up but not much; I can concentrate on sewing instead of ironing.
