Steps to tape the bias in curves

  • Prepare the bias

    Unfold the bias and place it on the left side so that the edges of the canvas fit perfectly. Secure with pins. Instead of rivets with the product on the table, when placing the bias constraint on a curve, you should lift the product off the table for better handling. In this way, the edges will not curve. The bias will rise at the other end and have a wavy shape, unlike the flat shape of a straight seam.

  • Sewing machine

    The sewing machine follows the line of the first fold. Remember that when sewing a curve, the needle should be rotated to better fit the circular shape of the seam. Take your time to sew more often and get smooth, clean curves that give your bindings a polished, professional look.

  • Sewing bias

    You need to place the fabric on the right side from above and cover the seam with the edge of the tape. Secure with pins. Sew about 2 mm from the edge of the tape. Make sure it is at the top and bottom of the seam.

  • Iron

    Once the bias in a curve is over, the bias binding in a curve may be raised or hollowed out. This is solved with a gentle ironing with steam by taps of pressure (without dragging the iron).
