    Simplicity Bias Tape Maker - Do you like it?

    I'm thinking about getting one to these, but would love to hear if y'all like or dislike them.

    Thanks!

    I am looking at it too. If you are talking about the electric one I read the one inch tip that come son it works but not the additional ones.

    I think I might invest in Celtic Bias Bars.

    I need bias tape for applique.

    I have this machine and got the larger tip attachment for quilt binding and it works great for me.

    Works great for me too! It does get very hot, so you get a nice pressed edge on the bias (or straight) tape. I'm really pleased with this tool.

    I've had mine for about 2 years and like it when doing true bias binding. But I find that most of the time that bias really isn't needed, unless doing a project with scalloped borders, or anything needing a curved binding. Mine was a gift. Would I buy one, nope. I do most of my bindings as a double fold instead of a triple.
