    I've used this method before - it really works so well, but is initially very confusing (at least to me it was). If one gets confused, just keep trying to figure it out, as it is a great way to make copious amounts of bias tape out of a relatively small amount of fabric. Thanks for posting the link.

    That is the greatest store, if you get a chance to visit.
