What to do with those little leftover bits of bias binding

After all the hats and Tulip Dresses I made in the Summer (and some secret-book-business sewing), I seem to have a lot of spare bias binding bits.... and they're cropping up on lots of little winter pinnies.

The green corduroy dress is from this book and the purple one is a New Look summer pattern (forgotten the number but it's something like this) in a bit of cotton coat-weight fabric.

The orange corduroy Tulip Dress got the yo-yo treatment with it's bias tape detailing. (I also made a small beret to match). I'm yet to photograph these garments ON THE CHILD....

...because she's being as cooperative in front of the camera as she usually is.

But I can assure you, she looks very cute.

Great idea. I love it, and thought I really must let you know. (I usually lurk and admire silently).

I love the dresses - and the photos are pretty good for ones taken with an uncooperative model!
