Rewatching Pride And Prejudice (Colin Firth version) while finishing up a smocky top (self drafted) with some cute bias facing. I used my new Simplicity bias tape machine and it worked great! See my stories for the machine in action. It didn’t come with a 1/2” tip but it worked just fine to tape a regular bias tape maker in place! Sometimes to keep hoarding a cute print I only use a small amount of it in a top - like on this one. Used the swans on the front and a coordinating dot on the back.
quick demo of my favorite way to bind a quilt. 2" strips ironed through a .5" bias tape maker. You can use the crease lines as a guide to sew along to attach to front of quilt and then fold under the raw edge on the back and machine stitch or finish by hand. A little less bulky than the usual fold in half method and a little more forgiving since you can adjust seam allowance width on the back slightly as needed while attaching.
For any of you who have also been bitten by the sewing bug, this little #biastapemaker tool is so incredibly helpful! Makes the simple but tedious task of making bias tape almost enjoyable! (Available on Amazon) 😁
Ni pun harta karun , pasni x yah nak fikir nak lipat2 utk buat tali beg, guna bias tape maker je... saiz lipatan pun dapat sama #biastapemaker#handmade#sewing

Yay, happy December all! It is officially the most wonderful time of the year. ❤️🎄🎅🎁
"Remember, this all began with a child. Because it took nothing but love to begin it, it’s not really Christmas if love isn’t in it. Your tree may be large as the room will allow with a big yellow star on the uppermost bough, but of one thing I’m certain, I’m sure of one thing. It is love that makes the angels sing.” - The Spirit of Christmas, Nancy Tillman

Finally getting around to some Christmas bias tapes for the shop! 😆🎄. Both of these stripes should be listed tomorrow as 1/2” double fold and 1” single fold, with other sizes available as made-to-order. ❤️
When you have a moment of panic realizing you’ve run out of time to make bibs for a charity drive, and you don’t have a snap setter and don’t feel like using Velcro, but then you find the @craftinessisnotoptional pattern for the bapron, and it’s perfect because bias tape!
I think these would be adorable with laminated cotton and a brushed cotton back, but I didn’t have those on hand so instead I used quilting cotton with a layer of Shield PUL inside for waterproofing.
And now I have to make more for my own baby, who is a VERY messy eater. 👶🐷
Happy Sunday lovelies! 😘💕
