This has been the best video explaining this method. I always have a problem remembering which way to lay the ends open. Great job !
I found this to be a very helpful way to join the ends of the binding. However, it wasn’t clear exactly where on the ends she snipped the fabric. Was it on the bottom of each end or the top. Please explain in more detail. Thanks.
She snipped the fabric along the bottom raw edges of the fabric.
Hope this helps!
