Did you know you can make your own bias tape? Do you know what bias tape is? Time for a mini sewing lesson! Bias tape is a piece of fabric but obliquely, or on the bias, used to bind edges or for decoration. Since the fabric is cut on the bias, it is very stretchy and flexible, so works well on curves. Quilt binding is one of the most common used for bias tape. However, there are plenty of out-of-the-box uses for bias tape, (Hint hint!) that make this a handy skill to have! So we’re showing you how to make bias tape! Of course, you can find pre-made bias tape at your local fabric store, but the fabrics are below average quality and the color variety is slim-pickings. With just a few tools, you can make oodles of bias tape in whatever fabric you like.
Let’s get down to bias tape making business!
