So what's all the fuss about Bias Tape Makers...? ...They will CHANGE YOUR LIFE, that's what!!! Little wonder that a few were mentioned on "This Is My Trade Secret" posts, or in the comments following. I particularly like the Clover Bias Tape Maker (well, Clover seem to do a pretty good job of just about EVERYTHING, don't they?). Since discovering them I've bought one in every size and have been happily binding anything I can possibly bind. After years of doing this the LONG WAY around, I can't get over how quick it is now. A bias tape maker makes perfect bias tape in the fabric of your choice, and makes it so that the seam allowances go ALL THE WAY TO THE CENTRE (unlike the store-bought variety), so there's little chance of fraying edges if you go a little bit wobbly with your stitching!!
