I have a shirt that I’m making and there isn’t enough to fold up the edge so I was wondering if there is any bias tape sorta thing one can use for it?

    To clarify, you’ve run out of fabric and are trying to hem the shirt? Or are you finishing arm & neck holes?

    Stretchy material does not need to be cut on the bias. Cut strips from your fabric and use these to bind the edges of your garment. I do it all the time to finish knit clouthing that I’ve made.

      Thanks a lot. Someone asked if they could so that but people told her she couldn’t but it you do it, then I guess there’s no problem. =) Thanks again.
