A Flurry of Bindings
I've tried the 'tube' method but find it both confusing and cumbersome - the last time I attempted it things did not end well. Since then I've taken to just starting in the corner of my fabric and cutting 2" strips on a 45-degree angle until I think I have enough, but that gets a little awkward on my small table when the strips start getting really long, and it's not the fastest trick in the book.
Take a piece of fabric, make a 45-degree fold and then using that bias fold line, fold the two outer tips towards each other taking care to keep all of the folds aligned along the initial fold line. Once you have a rectangle just trim near the folds and then cut strips the width that you want, 2" in my case. Confused? Heather has kindly created a handout that you can print for easy reference.
