Last month someone asked me to make some black and white striped binding. It seemed like such an easy request--I'd just pop on over to the fabric store and find the black and white stripes!
Uh, no, it didn't quite work that way, and I walked out of the store with NO striped fabric. Mind you, the fabric store nearest my house is huge (see a pic here), so it is usually not a problem to find what you are looking for, or at least a close substitute.
So last week when I saw this black and cream stripe, I made sure to get some while the getting was good. This fabric has a touch of brown along the edge of the black stripes that gives it a neat antiqued look.
If the thought of cutting and pressing a bunch of skinny fabric strips to make binding fills you with apprehension and dread (or if you just would rather not make it), come take a look here!
Binding is something I've offered in my etsy shop off and on over the years. Not every print is a good candidate for binding, so I've only offered it when I had a fabric that worked.
In the past it has been available as specific lengths, because it didn't really make sense to offer it by the yard on etsy. But on my new website it works out just fine. So I'm happy to be offering it by the yard and will be adding more binding options soon.
