Tips on tools - Bias tape maker

I don't think I'd be making my own bias tape as often as I do if I didn't have this little tool. It makes it so quick and easy, and you won't burn your fingers. I usually use cotton voile or even lighter fabrics. You will usually end up with 4 or 5 layers of fabric when finishing an edge with bias tape, so you don't want to use a fabric that gives too much bulk.

I make sure the tape end is cut at an angle so it's easier to feed it through.

Pull the tape maker gently with your right hand, following closely with the iron.
