Since I own and have used both products, I'll review both the Brother SA109 Binding Foot and the Distinctive Tape Binding Foot at the same time. This will essentially be a comparison of the two.

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.

Attachment fit fine on my Singer machine. I was surprised that the binding attachment was plastic, I was a little afraid I would break it with too much stress. Foot was metal. Works GREAT attaching binding tape to one or two layers of fabric but a struggle to fit more (i.e. lining or facings plus garment). I was working with a heavy (thick) lining plus 2 other layers of lighter fabric, I struggled to get the fabric into the attachment to start sewing and keep it in place. Sewing binding on a table runner worked quick and easy.

Before buying this presser foot, I always sewed my bias binding the old-fashioned couture way, where you sew one side of the binding first, then flip it over and hand-sew the other side (using a slipstitch) so the stitching is completely invisible. That's still my preferred method, but not all of my students have the patience to bind that way. One of my students purchased this foot and let me try it out, and I was quite impressed. Yes, your stitches show. But it reduces the time and energy needed to attach the binding, because instead of sewing, then flipping, pressing, and sewing again, you're attaching the binding in one easy step.

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.

Very helpful item! I was beginning to think I'd never be able so attach bias tape correctly but I have renewed faith thanks to this part. Before buying this foot on Amazon I went to 4 shops looking for a foot that would help attach bias tape and everyone I asked looked at me like I had 3 heads. Some of the sewing shops didn't even carry anything like this foot and most of them told me that they didn't carry anything to fit a Singer sewing machine. (In fact most of them practically turned their noses up at the idea of a Singer and one women told me to try Walmart.) I was worried that it wouldn't fit my machine after all that but I'm happy to say that it snapped in without a problem.

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.
