Bias tape

Made my first bias tape yesterday! Did it the old skool way, cutting strips, sewing together, then hand ironing.

Couldn't get my little tape maker to work, cut the strips to exactly 48mm as the instructions said (for 25mm tape) but it came out bunched every time.

Next time I want to try the sew before cutting method, or get a bias tape ruler to make the cuts easier. Rotary cutter helps too, lovely straight edges yum.
