Fold-over trims

Check out these new trims we just got in!


They are knitted fold-over trim.  The bright group (above) is 100% cotton, and the heathered and muted shades (below) are 100% wool.


A fold-over trim is meant for binding raw edges on a garment edge; the most common fold-over trim is bias tape.  It's simple to use, just fold the trim along the center crease, then sandwich the fabric inside the fold and sew.

If your fabric is slippery, you can sew one side first, then fold around and sew the remaining side.

The best part is that since they are knitted, they have plenty of stretch for applying to knit garments.
