For the past few months, I’ve been researching various bias tapes apparatuses.
One of the items I looked at was the manual bias tape maker, but I wasn’t sold on it… although I still might try it out at some point. But for now, I decided to purchase the Simplicity Bias Tape Machine.
I first saw Angela Wolf demonstrate the machine and I wrote about it on my blog, but I held off on making the purchase until today. I finally ordered it this morning and it arrived about an hour ago. You’ve got to love Amazon Prime’s same day service.
I was so excited that I opened up the box immediately and ran to get my fabric sample.
Guess what? I did not cut it on the bias. I know, I know…. I’ll do better next time, all right?
My first impression? This gets very hot! Pay attention to the iron.
But it was well worth it to see my neatly folded bias tape.
Check out the inside, the edges match up perfectly!
How do you make your Bias tape double sided?
I decided I wanted a double fold bias tape and so I folded and ironed the tape with my regular iron.
Look at my double sided bias tape! No need to buy bias tape anymore. Woohoo! I can make it myself. Based on the reviews, I should enjoy this machine for a while. Even though I did not cut on the bias, this sample is still perfectly fine to use.
Purchasing additional Bias tips in different sizes
It’s official, I’m loving my Simplicity Bias Tape machine. The machine comes with a 1″ bias maker tip. However you can buy additional sizes. I’ll be purchasing them in a few weeks.
