Hotpads + attaching bias tape

How do you sew double fold bias tape on a quilt?
Fold the bias tape back up over the seam and flip it over to encase the unfinished edge. Open up the double-fold bias tape all the way and find the narrower side. Pin the bias tape edges to the raw edges of the fabric, right sides together. Sew the bias tape in place along the fold.
What is the difference between bias tape and binding?
To begin, what is the difference between bias tape, bias binding, and bias facing? Bias tape is a bias-cut strip of fabric (or several strips sewn together) with two edges turned and pressed to meet in the middle. Bias binding is when bias tape is used to enclose the raw edge of a neckline, armhole, or hem.
Can you use bias tape to bind a quilt?
Binding is the final step in quilting; whether you use premade bias tape or make your own, here’s how to sew it on! Starting along one of the straight sides of the blanket (not a corner), pin the open edge of the bias tape to the raw edge of the quilt.
What is the difference between single and double fold bias tape?
Double-fold bias tape has three folds, whereas single-fold bias tape has two. Double-fold bias tape is used to bind an edge and is visible from the outside of a garment, whereas single-fold bias tape is used as a narrow facing and is turned to the garment’s wrong side.
