I cut several 2.5'' strips, matched up corners, sewed, trimmed, then folded and ironed them in half.
It only took me 30mins to make about 10 yards of binding. (45 mins if you include the "cut a strip, move the cat, sew a strip, move another cat, trim the strip, move a third cat, etc".)
Of course, Autumn had to put her paw print of approval on it while I was trying to iron it. (I adore that little face, it just melts a Mommy's heart)
After all was said and done, this what I had :-)
I'm so proud of myself! I literally just learned how to sew a straight line and now I'm quilting, making my own binding, etc. YAY!!!!
BTW- Here's a tease of what I'm working on...
....oh ya did I mention that ALL of the material I'm using for it is being upcycled from previous items? YAY! Go team Green :-)
Have a great day and a happy heart!
