Hi! This post is to share my recent discovery when I came across a bias tape maker in Susie Can Stitch. I''m still learning to sew and seeing the cute little bias tape maker she have...make me want to have one too!...even though I haven't decide what to do with bias tape...but making them looks so much fun.
Since I don't have a bias tape maker...so, I just sort of 'make' one.... This is how I do it...
Material : Craft cutting blade, some fabric straps, hair straightener (yup...)
These are what I have on hand
a common craft cutting blade..
Prepare some fabric straps
Remove the end of the cutting blade
Remove the blade inside as well
Fold your fabric strap whichever way you want to bias tape to be...
Insert the strap into the blade casing
A needle to push it will be helpful
Pull the strap from the tip...
Here comes the bias tape!!!
Use the thinner casing just the same way to product thinner bias tape
Firm the shape with a hair straightener
What do you think?
Will you try this?
Let me know if this is useful!
