3771  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / I think I'm addicted, but I might be biased... on: August 24, 2009 06:38:00 PM
My name is TheMistressT and I like to make bias tape.  (Hi, TheMistressT!)  The reason this might be more of an obsession than a skill is that I usually make it before I have a project to use it on.   Undecided  I have been pretty successful not buying fabric just for the purpose of making bias tape, though - the only time I've done so was with that tiny turquoise gingham which was on clearance.

Not all of these are cut on the bias, actually.  The gingham, stars and stripes are and the green dots and purple swirls are cut on the grain.  The stars and stripes are double-fold, the rest single fold.  I had to put a closer shot because I love these darn things.

I originally thought to put this in the Sewing In General board, but there's not a "finished project" section that I could see... and these are for sewing, but not sewn.  If this belongs somewhere else, I'll be happy to move it or have it moved.

Nothing deserves to fuck off more than cancer and I doubt you'll find many people who disagree.  If so, they're perhaps focusing on the wrong priorities.  I made a "fuck cancer" embroidery myself and it's been nothing but well-received so I bet yours will continue to be well-received here and by everyone who sees it in person.

Keep rockin!

Heaps of cushy geeky fun you've made!  I love them!

EDIT: Love you title, too!

I love pictograms!  They convey so much in so little space and often it's even helpful!  Yours is wonderful!  I've been saving an instruction sheet for another item hoping to embroider it someday and your post may have inspired me over the edge.  I often photograph pictograms when lucky enough to traveling in foreign countries and doing them in embroidery may be an awesome way to commemorate my trips!

This is so wonderful!  I teared up reading your post and thinking about all the thought taken to make sure the tablecloth made it to each reunion and someone cared to embroider the names over all the years.  So nice!  Congratulations on adding your stitches and thanks (from a stranger) for helping ensure that the tradition can keep going.  YOU ROCK!

That's a great transformation!  You'd never suspect it was originally a nautical theme/boat thing!  What an honor that your gift gets to travel with your friend on his sojourn.

We sure do!  I'm a few months off from adding more swaps, but I'd love to swap with you then.  Feel free to nag me about it after awhile!

I bet the edges on those leaves are getting so nice; frayed and soft.

THAT is super cool!  Congratulations on figuring it out!

How did I miss this?  I love them!  I, too, have a tree fetish AND a leaf fetish.  Plus green is my favorite color.  Sigh.  Have your guests been afraid to use them to dry their hands?

Great find and kudos to you for going back and asking!  I've read several places that it's not good to store cloth in dry cleaning bags (traps moisture, off-gassing could discolor, etc.) so if you haven't already you might want to remove your awesome stash from the bags.
