To cut bias strips, first cut across the fabric at a 45 degree angle. Cut edge in the width you need.
Keep in mind that the bias tape maker will reduce your fabric diameter in half when making single fold bias tape.
Example: 1 inch bias strip inserted into bias tape maker will become a 1/2inch single fold bias tape. Folding a second time and ironing will create double fold bias tape of 1/4inch size.
Optional: Pin end of strip to ironing board.
Pull tape maker and iron the strip, while keeping iron close to tape maker.
Use your iron’s steam setting while ironing, it creates better folds.
