A Handmade Bias-Tape Production
Here is something new for the calicodaisy shop. Handmade, 1/4-inch, double-fold bias tape. The fabrics have been washed, dried, ironed, and then cut on the bias for some extra pretty trimmings.
This was a HOT project though, steaming!, from all that ironing. I think I'll make the next round the half-inch size. However, I think this size will be perfect for aprons, dishtowels, potholders, or trimming on a little one's dress.
UPDATE!! - I am thrilled to say that my first bias tape listing sold within two hours! I have one more 3-yard length and just put that one in the shop. Thank you for all your nice comments. I really do like to iron fabric, and making the bias tape is quite a nice project. -- Michele
