I hardly use store bought bias tape for binding. I make my own out of the scrap fabrics in my collection.
The width of the tape depends on your need, you could cut it to specific sizes or like me just find the ones with similar sizes and lay them out. As you can see below, I have been working with blue(s) lately (more here). Rearrange the line up until you are somewhat happy with what you have.
Sew the pieces together
Next, open the seam and press (iron). You could straightaway fold them like bias tape or..
.. just fold them neatly to be used for many different purposes later like as tie backs, handles, binding, borders, patchwork.. anything actually..
I used the blue tape as binding for my baby quilt truck
