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!
