My friend Jeanine introduced me to the new Simplicity bias binding maker. It takes 2" strips of bias fabric strips and irons them into 1" single fold bias. You can see how easy this is here in this demonstration on youtube but the process really is very intuitive - you roll the strips onto the spindle and it feeds it through the bias tip and then the iron. The result is beautifully crisp bias binding produced literally in seconds. I like that it has the uneven turnbacks of real bias binding which lets you fold and stitch in the ditch, catching the wider fold underneath.
