I will admit that Wright's Double Fold Bias Tape Binding gives a project a nice clean look. However, because it is so thin and stiff that it does not allow a lot of movement room compared to making your own bias binding. On the contrary I do recommend trying it out.

*This tutorial will also work on other sizes of Wright's Double Fold Bias Tape Binding.

I'm confused, why not sandwich the fabric between the bias tape?

You can sandwich it. I personally had a heck of a time trying to sandwich it. I find that it slips right out or my stitching never makes it to where it should be. Basically with this tutorial I am using the typical binding method that is done in quilting to insure that everything stays where it should stay if that makes any sense.
