Bias Tape Maker

Bias Tape Maker

I was watching a sewing show on TV and saw the host make some easy loops for buttons with a bias tape maker. I thought it would be a great way to make ribbon out of fabric for my ornaments. I bought a 12mm and a 6mm one, but have only used the 12mm so far.

It’s really easy to use. The directions how to use it were right on the back of the package and told me how big to cut my fabric strips. For the 12mm tape maker I used 23mm wide strips. You just feed the fabric through the tape maker and iron it as it comes out the other end.
