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.
This striped binding is available to order by the yard right here.
