Quilter's Strip Ticket
InstructionsMeasure and cut carefully and the rest is *so* easy!
Type of item: Functional
Scrap of jacquard
What was your inspiration?
A long time ago I received a "Quilter's Strip Ticket" (widely available online) as a stocking stuffer, but I put it aside because it looked a bit fussy and, after all, it was for quilters and I don't quilt. I pulled it out again after looking at some beautiful scraps I just couldn't bear to part with. Less than an hour later my funny little scrap of jacquard is 6' of super-nice double-fold bias tape I can use to finish or decorate anything I want!
What are you most proud of?
Taking the next step and turning the bias strip into double-fold tape.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It's *so* easy, and looks so much classier than boring packaged bias-fold tape that you should consider it for anything you are making and not just for repurposing scraps. Also, I really recommend the Strip Ticket -- the instructions are clear and it gives tables for widths ranging from 1" to 7."
