Hww to Make Bias Tape Binding
Cut a few strips of fabric on the bias using a rotary cutter or scissors. For this mask, I am cutting the tape to approx. 5 cm width.
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.
Bias Tape Maker
I discovered a wonderful little tool on Amazon that makes folding Bias Tape an easy task.
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.
Iron the Bias tape as you are pulling it through the folding tool.
That’s it! The bias tape is ready to be sewn onto your new project.
