    making bias tape

    Does anyone have the electric bias tape maker that irons as it goes. I have a couple of the manual ones by Clover but not the size I need. Was thinking about on of the electric ones. Not sure but think it is made by Singer. Would like to know if anyone has used one.
    Thanks,

    I have the Simplicity bias machine. I use it to make straight quilt binding with the large tip. It works great. It took a little patience and practice but it was worth it. I'll buy a jelly roll of basic colors and prints and make rolls of binding at a time.

    I love mine, so easy to use. I bought all of the extra tips gradually with coupons from JoAnns. I also use it to make cording for drawstring bags, I just sew a straight stitch up the middle to keep it together.

    I really like the Simplicity bias maker too. Use it for straight strips. Now The machine that cuts the strips was a waste of money for me. You need three hands to use it!
