Here is the pile of awful yellow bias tape I was using at first. I hate bias tape and the feeling is apparently mutual.



Even though I made my own bias tape out of black fabric, I still can't, for the life of me, figure out how to do corners without looking like I'm high and blind.

Okay first let me say I nearly peed my pants when I read this. I too hate trying use bias tape on corners.

I dont know how youre actually doing it (the bias), but theres a thingy you buy to 'plug and play' onto the sewing machine that makes sewing bias the easiest thing ever.
It can be hard to find the thingy for home machines instead of industrial ones, but give it a try. They have it in every size. You just put the fabric in, the thingy already folds it and you just sew like anything else.




Okay can you tell me or link me to somewhere to maybe purchase one of these so I don't have to look "high and blind" when I use bias tape anymore.....lmao

Sewing bias binding on corners is a daunting task, because you have to mitre it. Being lazy I just round all corners with a thread spool, then prepress the binding into a curve before attaching it. The foot the person is talking about in the previous post is a bias binding foot and nancys notions has them and so does clotildes.
