Default cutting binding help

A friend told me about a way he was shown to fold and cut binding without sewing pieces together from a yard of fabric. She just folded it and cut it. Anyone know how this was done???

Now he cuts a 1-1/2" strip in a circle to the center, single layer, it takes time.

Thanks.

It is called 'Continues Bias Binding'. You can find several videos on it.
I tried it once, and was a total disaster for me. But don't let my experience deter you.

It is called continuous bias binding. I did it once and it worked well but it was not the easiest method.

I prefer the way I cut and make binding. It works very well for me.

He said there was no sewing at all, it was just the way it was folded. No strips to sew together. I can't see how it was done.
thanks anyway.

No strips to sew together after you cut it apart ... however you do have to do some stitching to make it continuous.

As others have said, this gives you bias binding ...
