Learn how to make 4 yards of bias tape from one fat quarter with this clever tutorial from sewing expert Caroline Critchfield. Homemade bias trim is higher quality, way cuter, and now costs less than buying the packaged kind. This quick tutorial shows step by step how to make a whole bunch by sewing only two seams. Two folding and ironing methods are shown, including the fast and easy way using an inexpensive bias maker tool found in the quilting section of your local fabric superstore.
Old School method:
This is now single fold bias tape. I used it for embellishing the dress in the pictures. You may want to save some for that.
The trim used on the edges of the dress/top is double fold bias tape, so take your single fold tape, fold it in half again, and press. There you go!
Iron the bias tape as it comes out the other end. The bias tape maker only makes single fold bias tape. Use the old school method above (fold it in half) to make double fold bias tape for your dress or top.
You just made over 4 yards of 1” single fold or ½” double fold bias tape! (And I’m sure yours is way cuter than plain old store-bought bias tape.
