Anyone that knows me, knows that I'm not one for hand stitching on binding (or anything else hand work for that matter). Not that I don't love the look, it's just not my thing. I think it's because I'm so slow at it, I know practice makes perfect.
However, Vanessa Goertzen with Lella Boutique has a very cute sew along for a Goody Goody Binding Kit that might just make me change the way I feel about hand binding. We're participating in a sew along sponsored by Fat Quarter Shop. If you would like to sew along with us, the full tutorial can be found at Lella Boutique's blog.
Here are the fabrics I have selected. All of them being Bonnie and Camille, mostly Daysail but I did pull out some favorites from the Vintage Modern line.
This is the exterior to my Goody Goody Binding Kit, it's one of my favorite prints from Vintage Modern. I love the colors and the floral design, definitely had to include this print!
I'm currently finished installing the zipper, Fat Quarter Shop has a great video with Vanessa featuring zipper installation. Swing back by tomorrow to see more progress! I do hope you'll join the sew along with us! If you make a Goody Goody Binding Kit you can tag it #goodygoodysewalong so we can all see what you're making too!
