Sew Bias Tape into Strips
Place 2 ends of Bias Tape together at an angle, so that when you sew them, the tape opens into a long strip.

The Bias Tape Maker Kit has 4 different sizes of Bias Tape folding tools.
The kit also has an awl that is used to push the tape through the maker, as well as some push pins and clips.

After the bias tape has been sewn into a long strip, push one end of the tape through the Bias tape tool using the awl.

I've had an interest in weaving, looms, yarns and textiles since I was a small child. I learned to knit, crochet, sew, do needlepoint at my mother's knee. My grandmother was a Saami from northern Norway. I am very interested in studying more about traditional Saami and Finnish style weaving and handicrafts. Paivi Suomi
