We’ve talked about bias tape before, and I’ve already shared tutorials about it, (here, here, and here)
BUT if I had known about this handy little presser foot, (purchased here) we would have done a lot more projects with binding! You see, I’m kinda lazy when it comes to well, pinning, and ironing, and pretty much taking the “proper” steps to make a project really look finished.
Ok, maybe it isn’t so much LAZY, as it is REALISTIC.
I have a limited amount of time to work on most of my crafting projects, and more often than not there is a toddler hanging all over me while I’m doing anything. Tools like this one are a huge help because they can eliminate steps that you would normally not have time to do anyway and significantly reduce the amount of time you have to spend “fiddling” with a project. Check out this little video and tell me you’ve ever applied bias tape that quickly. (and evenly!)
Kinda impressive isn’t it?
And here is my little diagram to help explain what you can’t really see in the video…
I can’t wait to use this foot on a few of the baby projects that I have on my to do list.
It should be especially helpful for these…
|from Martha, but I have another similar pattern|
|Hooded Towels and Washcloth|
and of course a few of these…
|Baprons from Craftiness is not Optional|
Plus it would probably be nice if I made something for Reli while I’m at it.
Let’s just hope that my energy holds out long enough to get all these projects done!
Thanks for Visiting!
