I usually bind my baby wraps but a well overlocked edge would be lovely and work just as well.
OR how about go for a very wide contrast strip...say 10cm wide or even wider in a nice contrast colour.. overlock it on wrong sides together, mitre the corners and topstitch.. that would look rocking.
what does the diff feed actually do?
i want to keep the edges on the one for a gift the same with a thin edge - but if ijust bind it by folding the binding in half and overlcoking then topstitching - will that keep its stretch or go all tight?
