BINDING MEASURING BASICS
at the 1 inch spot here in photo . . .
the binding is larger so the cut edge will be underneath BINDING TAPE (which is 1 1/4 inches )when you are done.
I use just a little stiff card paper to make my marker . NOTE**every style of finished edge is a different measurement .. . .
check out yesterdays post there are 3 examples . .
this is the best I can do to explain . . .hope this helps to understand better . . .
the blog format is not the best for teaching!
Here below . . . . is
the VIEW of the UNDERNEATH SIDE of my rug edge . . . .
you can see that the dark green BINDING TAPE is larger than where I cut the linen backing. . . therefore will be hidden when binding is finally attached down to close my edge of rug . . . .
CORNERS are mitred yes . . .
THUS is the final chapter in binding ones rug with carpet tape!!
