|This knit binding technique I found on a blog called Kitschy Koo may be old hat to some, but it was news to me, and I am going to use it for anything and everything I possibly can. I just tested it out on a jersey dress, where I bound the sleeves and back neckline. I think this technique might also work well for wovens.
You need to scroll down the webpage to her technique. I added in one step, which was to trim the seam very close to the stitching after the first step since I don't have a serger, to reduce bulk and avoid a lumpy edge showing through in the binding. I also used my blind hemming foot to edge stitch the final seam. It was really easy to create a perfect binding with this method.
Another trick that I use: when cutting the binding, I first cut a larger width of binding than I need, press it in half lengthwise, and THEN recut the binding to the width that I want. I find it more accurate as the fabric doesn't have a chance to get stretched out of shape or handled too much before you sew and the width stays consistent.
I also use one of those see thru quilting rulers with the cutting guides that you can run your rotary cutter along ideal for bindings.
