Double-Fold Bias Binder

Threads #201, Feb./Mar. 2019
Article Image
You can re-create the beautiful binding found on ready-to-wear T-shirts and tops with the double-fold bias binder attachment for knits or wovens. This accessory is a useful addition to your cover-stitching tools, and it’s worth learning to use it for the professional results you’ll achieve. The double-fold bias binder screws onto the machine bed of select coverstitch and coverstitch-capable machines. The binder works well on knits, as shown on the following pages, but it can also bind woven fabrics. As the binder name suggests, woven fabrics must be cut on the bias. However, knit fabrics should be cut on the cross-grain. The double-fold bias binder comes in 8-mm, 10-mm, and 15-mm versions. These measurements correspond with the width of the finished binding. As the binding strip and garment edge pass through this clever attachment, it folds the binding, encloses the garment edge, and stitches the binding in place in one step. Create knit garments with neat, bound edges without hassle because this attachment does all the hard work for you.

    My issue is that not every sewing machine or serger will be able to use this kind of attachment. I have a Husqvarna DSE and I know that I can't buy this attachment to work with my machine.
    I would love to be able to do so. For me, as is often the case, I can't use this technique because I don't have access to the high end machines that Threads articles often refer to. It's very frustrating to read these kinds of articles and know that they are of no use to me.
