Binding on the Denim Shirt Project

Cut a strip of fabric 1 1/2 inches wide. Press in half and stitch with an embroidery stitching onto the edge of the quilt on the folded edge of the strip.  See photos.  

Snip with a scissors about 1/4 inch apart and about 3/8 inch deep.  I am camping and we don't have a washing machine, so I took a wet washcloth and ruffed up the fringes and shook out the loose threads.  When I am back home, I will wash the quilt in a washing machine and dry in the dryer --- Emptying the lint screen about every 10 minutes or so, depending on how much it frays.

It's a fun raw edge binding!

Next post the completed "Denim Shirt Project - My Vacation Project"!

Enjoy your day!
