Oh my gosh, I am such a sewing geek.
Seriously? Five posts on bias tape?
But it’s so much fun and now that I’m pretty sure you’re addicted too, let’s bring our bias tape to a whole new level today and make our own custom…
So gather up some cotton clothesline, your fun fabrics and head on over to my post at eHow this morning to learn how to make your own corded piping AND how to make new summer pillows with it.
(You might even win some bias tape while you’re at it, just leave a comment and your name will be entered into the hat to win some bias tape on Saturday, June 14)
Congratulations to today’s bias tape winner:

Great idea Simona!

I love the many uses of bias tape. I have just found a dish towel that really has seen better days. There is one section that is just begging not to be put in the scrap pile. Found some fun fabric to make some bias tape to help the dish towel live another day! Thanks for the inspiration. 🙂

Love it! I once used bias tape to make piping, was never sure if it was “okay” to do so, it was just for an apron so it didn’t really matter but did always wonder whether It would be good for other projects. great tutorial 🙂
Thank you so much! I love piping. I usually use it on pillows and cushions but I want to start using it on clothes as well. Have a wonderful weekend!
