|Cutting on the Bias ||Cutting on the bias is a sewing term in which you cut on the diagonal to the weave of the fabric.
To find the true diagonal, unravel an edge of the fabric until you get to one straight thread, then fold that edge over
to a 90 degree angle to itself. Cutting on the bias is used for trims and such because it has more stretch to it and gan go around curves easier with less bunching.
