I love this pattern and I am considering making it for my friends for Christmas presents. One question before I buy it, do the instructions include information on how to make and apply the binding? Thank you!

The pattern states the method of binding I used but it does not provide specific binding instructions. You can find these, together with two other binding methods on my blog, in the Mug Rug Basics section (there is a link in the pattern to my blog).
Here is the specific link to binding methods and you have an option to print the instructions:

I use fabric strips for my binding, cut at 1" or 1.25" wide. I do not cut on the bias unless I particularly want a diagonal stripe. There are many good videos and tutorials online also for machine binding and alternative binding methods. And I am always happy to help (my email contact can be found in my profile).
