So I had to buy these nifty little bias tape makers this week. That's right: I absolutely had to. And that's because I needed to make this funky bias tape:
To go on this super cool skirt for my client Eileen:
See what I mean?
And I'm very excited about it because just imagine the possibilities now that I'm not limited to store bought bias tape!! With homemade bias tape I can use better quality fabric in an endless range of colors and prints. And the best thing is that I can use this bias tape to cover piping so my piped skirts and dresses (see here) just got a whole lot more interesting! Not to mention that it's just fun to add to my sewing gadget collection . . . .
