One of my favorite sewing tools is the bias tape maker. With the heat of an iron, this tool folds strips of fabric into perfect bias trim. It is commonly used to finish seams on the inside of garments and often used to complete the outside edge of a quilt. It's usually not the focus of a project but bias tape made from colored or patterned fabric is an easy way to add interest to a sewing project or even store bought items. I did a bias tape story a while ago and some of my favorite projects were the simplest. Click here for the basic techniques.
This set of bias tape makers is my favorite, they are from Clover, they work really well and you can find them here.
