Use It All Up

You may think this is trash, but don't throw these out just yet.

They work great for sewing together binding strips using a bias seam.

Place the binding strips right sides together at a right angle.

Cut your leftover Stitching Lines to the length of the diagonal.
Stitch on the solid line.

Tear away.

Trim seam and press open.
Fold strip in half and press.

Duh! I was using a new strip when I sewed my binding strips together. Even the inventor can learn something new!

What a great idea! I hadn't ever thought of that.

I knew there was a reason I was saving my leftovers! Thanks, Mary! So many uses - so much fun!
