    That’s FANTASTIC! I live in a country where nifty sewing and crafting gadgets aren’t readily available, and have always drooled over everyone else’s (online) homemade bias tape. But we freakin’ DO have exacto knives! Way to think outside the box, PC.

    (p.s. though to be truly ‘bias’ tape, doesn’t it have to be cut on the diagonal from your fabric?)
