TP Rolls Belong in the Bathroom: How to Keep Them Out of Your Quilting Room

Look no further than Binding Babies! These are not only cute and stylish; they are the tool that will revolutionize the way you do quilt bindings.

The Benefits of Bindings Babies:

When Binding Babies Were Born

Binding Babies were born in 2016 after creating a gift for a friend, who said you need to sell these! We started making them that August and the popularity for Binding Babies has risen every year in the quilting community.

How to Use Your Binding Babies


Once you get your Binding Baby you will want to get your binding created and ironed. Or as you iron your binding you can start to roll up her dress. Take the folded end up between the legs and start to wind the binding around the Binding Baby. Try to keep it taut and straight as you roll it on. Then attach a binding clip or pin to keep the binding in place until you are ready to attach your binding on to your quilt.

Once your quilt sandwich is ready for binding: place your Binding Baby on your machine's extra spool holder or sit her on the flower spindle beside your machine. Once you are ready to attach your binding take the clip off and let her spin. She will dance while you sew your binding to your quilt. If you need a potty or stretch break; replace your binding clip or pin to hold the binding in place. Doesn’t that sound better than having binding all over on the floor getting dusty, or in your lap? Less mess, and less tearing happens with Binding Babies.

Not only is it great for storing your binding, it can help entertain you while you sew. Brighten up your sewing room, and even keep little hands entertained while you are stitching away. It’s even a conversation starter at your next quilting retreat. Having cute and fun things in your sewing area just makes it more fun, especially when they are functional.

So, why settle for toilet paper rolls when you can have a Binding Baby? It’s like upgrading from an outhouse to a luxury bathroom!”
