Continuous bias tape guide & calculator

Pattern Description:

You want to have a go at creating your own cute bias tape. But how much do you need to make? What size square will you need to start with. Or how much will get you from a piece of fabric? There's nothing worse than running out of bias binding before you get to the end of your project, so make sure you always have enough with this handy Continuous Bias Binding Guide and Calculator.

The guide includes a handy reference table for all widths of bias strips from 1 to 4 inches in half inch increments and for lengths from 12 to 120 inches.

Great to carry in your purse for when you visit the fabric store, or pin to the wall by your sewing machine.

Also includes a downloadable spreadsheet for your computer so you can work out any precise calculations using any fabric sizes, widths and lengths you choose.

Never make far too much or too little bias tape again!
