hm, i just spent ages trying out my new bias tape maker, and i looked up some different tutorials for continuous bias tape, but somehow i managed to end up with non-bias tape! It's not stretchy! i must have cut it the wrong way :-( i'll be grand for the draw strings in draw string bags, and for apron ties, and for anything straight edged, i suppose.
i think i will have to go back to the "drawing board" and start again with another fat quarter. good job i have a few that i don't mind cutting up, impulse ebay buys that werent quite what i had hoped for! in fact, i will cut up this one's twin (i remember getting all excited reading the ebay delivery notice that announced "as one of the fat quarters turned out too small i sent you two" and then it was the ugliest fabric in the package)
