Both products are about the same price, at the present time there is about a $2 difference, giving a slight edge to Distinctive. Both can be used on most low-shank sewing machines that accept this type of snap-on foot. I've never cut my own binding but have always used bias tape so I cannot state for a fact how either would work for hand-cut binding strips.
The construction between the two brands is quite different. The Brother is made completely of metal while the Distinctive is a combination of metal and plastic. Therein lies the biggest difference between the two. The Brother has no adjustment so is limited to a maximum finished size of 1/4" (7mm) while the Distinctive can be adjusted from about 3/8" to 3/4" (5 to 20mm) finished size. Advantage: Distinctive
The construction design also has an effect on ease of use. The Distinctive Foot has 2 grooves in the plastic. You place your folded bias tape edges into the groves, adjust for width, snap the foot onto the machine and slide the fabric between the two edges of the binding tape. The Brother design is more like a narrowing funnel. Push the bias tape through the opening until it appears on the other side, snap the foot on the machine, and slide in the fabric. You can, of course, perform the above with either foot on the machine, but I've often found it easier to attach the foot after I've put the binding tape in. With the design difference I've found the Brother foot easier to use. Keeping the bias tape and the fabric correctly aligned was easier and I was able to sew a little faster.Read more ›
The binding foot may look complicated, but it's really quite simple to use. It's designed to fit a low-shank sewing machine, so it clips on, easy-peasy, although I would suggest inserting your fabric and binding first, before attaching the foot to your machine. The included directions were worthless; I threw them out and watched an online tutorial to learn how it works. It's easier to insert the binding if it's cut straight, instead of diagonally. The foot is completely adjustable, so you can sew any size binding you want, from extremely narrow to extremely wide. After inserting your binding, turn the thumbscrew to slide the bar until it's flush against the binding. Use your fingers to spread the plastic part a little, so you can sandwich your fabric into the gap, then pull the fabric and binding forward, so it's visible in the eye of the foot. On my first attempt, I wasn't careful and so the binding slipped away from the fabric. This is easy to prevent: sew slowly, keeping an eye on everything, and adjust the layers as necessary to keep everything aligned. It gets easier with practice.Read more ›
I love that it's universal and adjustable. It took me a moment to realize that I needed to not only adjust the tape size but the position of the feeder as well (I can be a little slow to figure things out) but once I figured it out it was a piece of cake. It was a little hard to get it positioned just right and I wish the feeder had a bit more weight to it to help it feel a bit more substantial but it does the job so I can't complain.
You still have to work slow and mind that you don't feed in so much fabric that it distorts the tape lines but this foot is definitely a big help.
