Bias Tape Applique’

I said yesterday that I was enjoying the bias tape applique’.  You can see from the photo that the curve is smooth and flat.

I am trying out how tight I can make the curves and still keep them smooth. While machine applique’ is generally a hassle, it is much better with the bias tape, because the edges are not raw. I don’t like to leave my edges raw. I usually cover them with satin stitching and that takes time. I don’t like it, though I like the look because I have to reset my machine. With the bias tape, I can use a straight stitch and follow the applique’ with my regular leaders and enders.

    1. The bias tape is pretty easy to make, though I wouldn’t start with 1/4″ like I did. It is small. It takes some practice to get get the sewing down, but doesn’t everything?
