That is clever, Jodi...no more binding in your way while you are sewing.

Well isn't that clever... I'll have to try that... Cool!

Carol said...

What a wonderful idea...I always have binding hanging over my shoulder trying to keep it from getting all twisted....thank you so much!

That is a fantastic idea! I will do this the next time I am sewing binding on a quilt. :o)
Hope you have had a wonderful week. :o)

Genius! Thanks for the tip!

Karen said...

Is that part of your sewing machine?

smarti said...

That is by far the best binding hint I've ever seen. Thanks!

Tina said...

Now THAT's a good idea! Not as stylish as wearing a toilet paper tube (wrapped with binding) around your neck, though.

Sequana said...

Yea, I'm gonna have to give up on the toilet paper tube too, but this looks just GREAT!

I'll be able to try it out in just a day or two.
