How to Make Bias Binding. Tutorial
Bias binding, or bias tape, is a narrow length of fabric cut on the "bias", meaning that it has been cut at a 45º angle to the grainline or selvedges. When woven fabric is cut on the bias, it has greater flexibility and stretch than fabric cut on the straight grain. This makes bias binding ideal for finishing off a rounded edge, trimming quilts and adding a decorative touch.

In lots of my sewing projects of late I have been making my own bias binding. What is a bias strip ? A bias strip is a woven strip of fabric cut on the bias.
