Alisa from Making More with Less loves to work with bias tape. Check out the bias tape on the pretty bibs she sews (tons and tons of bibs!); she also adds bias tape to her potholders. Alisa and her sister Suzanne run Making More with Less, documenting all of their sewing and family adventures.

Learn all about bias tape in Alisa’s handy Bias Tape Basics PDF download. Alisa shows you how to make and apply bias binding (her technique lets you make 3 ½ yards of bias binding with one fat quarter!). Alisa writes,

“Bias Binding is an easy way to finish off edges and add interesting detail and color to your sewing projects. Think bibs, pot holders, skirt hems, blankets and baby items… Try it on place mats, table runners and on curved and scalloped edges. You can buy it in your local fabric store or you can make it yourself in whatever fabric your heart desires.”
