HOW-TO USE YOUR BIAS BINDING FOOT


Overview and Sewing Machine Fit

You can use your binding foot to attach bias tape and quilt binding*.

It lines up the needle right where you want it and you get a straight, perfect stitch! 

Even better, you don’t have to pin the binding all the way around whatever you’re sewing before you attach it.

You just feed your binding into the binding foot as you feed in the fabric. It's Sew Easy!

You can use it for binding up to an inch wide. The measurements are from 5mm to 20mm. Just adjust the screw on the right side for smaller tape.

How Do I Know If My Machine Is "Low-Shank" And This Presser Foot Will Fit?
If you don’t know what sort of shank your machine has, it’s probably a low shank. Because High Shank machines are generally “fancy” embroidery models which are more costly, and those who invest in these models tend to know exactly what shank type it is. Most household sewing machines are "low-shank" and will fit this presser foot.

This binding foot may also fit a "high shank" embroidery machine if it takes clip-on or snap-on presser feet.

DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS FOR BINDING FOOT USAGE

First, feed your bias tape into the binding foot. There are two small plastic tabs, noted above, to hold the binding tape edges.

The two plastic pieces are pliable, so you can slip your fabric in between them. That will make a bias tape sandwich, with fabric in the middle.

It is usually easier to insert everything when the foot is not attached to the machine yet. So, slip in your fabric first.

Next, attach the binding foot to your machine and align the needle where you want. You can place the needle close to the edge of the binding foot or inwards a little bit.

Now you can start sewing. As you sew, you’ll just keep feeding the fabric into the bias tape as you go along. The presser foot will make sure it stays in place as you sew.

Look closely and you can see how nice and even it stitches. The binding foot does all the work for you.

Binding just got way easier! And the binding foot even takes curves really well. 

*Note: This binding foot works best for sewing projects with 1-2 layers of lightweight or medium-weight cotton fabric. It can be used for binding thin quilts with low-loft battings which are flatter and thinner (and NOT with battings with high loft, which are thick and fluffy). Because you DO need to feed the whole quilt sandwich into the slot of your binding foot. See photo below.
