    Kair Bjordahl Mentions to purchase extra amounts of fabric when planning to cut on the bias. As a beginner and one who usually goes over board. Is there a way to figure how much extra fabric to purcase for my project?

    Great video. I have made hundreds of yards of bias tape in a variety of fabrics, for the various projects over the years. I always hang a garment overnight whether I made it or am hemming a customer item, before ,I hem, just to avoid a redo. Clothing cut on the bias has a wonderful drape, if you have the patience, which I don't, so I often procrastinate on something for myself. And I love to sew binding in some pretty fabric to accent a gift of maybe, potholders or a baby quilt. And a nightgown in silk. The options are endless. Thanks for a great video. This should help a lot of sewing newbies to a wonderful way to expand their sewing capabilities.
