I need this! After working on my daughters birthday present blanket last night and running out of bias tape right before I was finished I was so frustrated! I have to drive 45 minutes to get anywhere with any sort of sewing supplies which is so crazy! (I keep trying to convince my husband this is more than a sufficient reason to move) Then after laying out my blanket that I spent hours on I decided I don't even like the boring solid color against my pretty printed fabric and now I wish I wasn't such a chicken to try to make some myself. Guess this will have to make it on the christmas list if I don't win!


Looks like a really handy dandy tool. Now, if I could just win a serger as well!!!

Love it. I have just begun my adventure into sewing, honoring my nana's passion. This would be an amazing tool to begin so many projects.

Man, I want a bias tape machine so bad! I've been havin inner turmoil with which to get this holiday season…bias tape machine or some kick-butt moccasin boots! The AGONY!


I've been eyeing the bia tape maker for awhile now. So much cooler than those fiddly cones for making bias tape.


Question re: subscription – I haven't received a newsletter yet (subscribed a few weeks ago, on the first post). I checked spam folder, etc. Have you sent a newsletter yet?

Not a fan of the bias tape cones but this one I would LOVE to get my hands on. Oh how life would be so much easier to make cute clothes for my THREE girls. The old fashion way is just not working for me anymore.

By the way if I keep reading your blog and seeing all the things that I "must have" my husband is going to ban me from your site. lol


Well this would be nice since the only store that sells anything to do with sewing is closing…so now the only store is 45 miles away to buy material patterns and etc….


P.S. I just found this site a few days ago..I do a lot of charity work..and found several items I am making…Thanks for a wonderful site


Isn't Simplicity the BEST! They have the their finger on the pulse of the sewing community and they know how to do things right. Bravo to SINGER & Prudent Baby for the Giveaways!………….. Patty


omg- you dont understand the timing! I have never entered a contest that Ive wanted to win so badly! Ive been dreaming about attempting making my own bias tape for months now and must have looked at your tutorial on making bias tape 50 times! I finally took the plunge this week!! and it came out beautiful! Im in love with all the possibilities! only problem was that I folded it down and ironed by hand and seriously burned myself a few times so this machine would be AMAZING!! thank you for the chance to win!!
