I’m with you, Angie. I love my iron and am glad my mother insisted I learn to use it efficiently, but I’d much rather iron things I’m making than already made clothing. Go figure.
As for making your own binding…it’s a breeze to use the binding makers…and you won’t want just one…they come in different sizes for different width binding. Homemade bias binding is far superior to anything you can buy these days, and the combination of fabrics in one piece is limited only to your imagination.
You can make roughly 16 yards with one yard of fabric…imagine the savings.
