pricey here too.  everything is it seems. My hubsters and I call this kind of simple but tedious work 'practical zen'.  You're welcome!  I love to share these kind of innovative solutions.

Just did this with a scrap of fabric.  Now I have 10 ft of home made bias tape, and nothing like it in the stores!  Thanks for your magic tutorial.

In another thread, someone had mentioned a tutorial about using a needle and your ironing board to make the bias tape. I couldn't puzzle out how that would be done. Then, in another thread, someone posted the link to your tutorial, so now it's perfectly clear (and brilliant!).

Thanks for such a clear tutorial!

This is fantastic! I still need to wrap my head around the process, but I really appreciate the tutorial! I've learned to absolutely love bias tape, especially the home-made variety, and this is much better than cutting out individual strips like I've been doing!

Excellent and bookmarked!

A lot of apron patterns include a piece that is to be used to make the bias trim around the apron the the ties...I have to admit, that if I had not used a pattern first, the sewing to make a continuous piece would have flabbergasted me!  But once you get it, the light bulb goes off and it all makes sense!

I now have a great gift idea for all of my sewing friends! Cheesy

I use those little Clover bias tape makers..  the ones you get for a couple bucks that are like just the tip of a Simplicity bias tape machine, so you cut the strip, and then feed it through, following the gizmo with your iron. 
So I still use a gadget, but a nice cheap unfancy one that makes it easier.
