Binding is a useful and decorative way to finish an edge, whether you are using it instead of a seam to join layers, or simply binding the edge of a single layer. You can either buy ready made bias binding or make your own, see 'How to cut & sew bias strips' and 'how make bias binding using a binding maker'.
