I saw a Youtube video of a binding tool by Susan Brown and it looks great. Wondering if anyone uses this tool? If so what do you do if you have a smaller project?

Maybe you could post a link to the video, Susan.  Not sure what tool this might be, but I tried demonstrating my Martelli zip bind tool on a small quilted wallhanging, and it was a pain to use on something so small.

Kim, I have given up on all these "binding tools" out there and just do it my own way which works well for me. However, I would like to see the video, too.       Susan

I have The Binding Tool and used it for the first time today.  I was binding a 25" x 25"  table center piece.  The tool made the job much easier. Make sure that you leave a 12" opening.  There is another youtube video showing you how to use the binding tool to make a Friendship Braid Quilt.

I would advise watching the youtube video when using The Binding Tool for the first time. The instructions are printed very small and the video is much easier to follow.

I have seen umteen binding tools and don't use any of them - I posted a binding pictoral on how to do it and that is the best way I can tell you how - I saw this demonstrated to me and tried it - I don't have to remember anything - don't have to find my tool and re-read the directions or look at a video - Nope don't use binding tools...

Kim - I use the binding tool.  You can't use it on a project where you can't have that 12" opening so you are out of luck on smaller projects.  You also cannot use it on any other width of binding - only works when you start out with a 2 1/2" wide strip of fabric.

Thea,

Thanks. I really like it. I have a F&P tool that works well but like you mentioned, I sometimes forget exactly how to use it then have to go searching for the instructions. I'm going to try your method next time.
