Penny Halgren demonstrates how to use a handy little gadget known as a bias tape maker. First make the bias binding by cutting strips of fabric on the bias and stitching them together. Then press all the seams in the same direction. The fabric will go through easier if the strips are fed through the bias tape maker with the seams facing away from the front of the tape maker. Put the bias tape maker on the ironing board and start feeding in the fabric. The handle allows you to pull the tape maker along the fabric. Be sure the fold in the fabric is in the middle. Once you get it started all you have to do is pull a little bit at a time, then press it all the way along, making sure the center of the fabric is lining up.
