Wow, that looks like a great tool!
OOOOO I have so many projects that require bias tape that I haven't done yet because I think that the price on bias tape at the stores is outrageous. Being able to make your own would save money and make coordinating it to the project that much easier!
Sweet! I totally need a magical bias tape maker in my life.
What a fabulous give away!! How sad that I was almost as excited by the shears.
You big ole tease!
Bias tape is one of my weakest point. I think this machine will solve that lol!
I already subscribe – can I still be entered??? firstname.lastname@example.org
I waaaaaaaaaannt it!
I've put this on my Christmas list, just in case I don't win. I'm on a sewing kick lately and the store bought bias tape is just not doing it for me…
How thrilled would I be to win this!?!!
I would love a tutorial or tip list on using bias tape. I am just ok with it and would love to get better, because I love the looks of it on projects.
patrick, ashely, and audrey: our bias tape tutorial is right here. XO
My heart skipped a beat when I saw this giveaway.
Oh my, that would make my life SO much easier! Thanks for the heads up on the newsletter, I signed up for that ASAP! 🙂
BIAS TAPE MAKER!! BIAS TAPE MAKER!!!! I can BARELY contain my joy and excitement!! …..not good because i'm actually at work right now…covering our receptionist for her lunch….ummmmmmmm..could i get in trouble for practically jumping out of my seat when i saw this post, squealing a little and almost hanging up on someone who just called because truthfully they are not as important as a bias tape maker?? ….cause i just did 🙂
Jaime…Thanks! I have seen this tutorial…and it's awesome!:) But I would also like some tips on how to use said bias tape a little more effectively. ie: making curves with it that look perfect, pinning it down more evenly….little things/tips to help me. I know…I am needy!:)
Just want to let the other commenters know: This frivolous piece of machinery is JOY with a plug. You want this! You do! They are FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC. When the magic little light comes on and I get to hit the RUN button and it starts making its happy noise I giggle like my 2 year old with a cupcake. I would never have known I needed such a a magical piece of awesomeness without the fantastic ladies of Prudent Baby either. My husband is SO thankful I spent his money on it too, I just know it!
I can't belive I haven't subscribed any earlier. Happy to be on the list now!!!!! DD
OMG.. got to love a bit of gorgeous bias tape 🙂
I'm already on your newsletter list – can't wait to find out how to win this!
Dude! That's awesome.
That is a wonderful item for a giveaway. Maybe I will quit burning the tips of my fingers with the iron. YAY!!
I want this. Bad. I feel I deserve a little piece of yumminess and craftiness this week. Cooped up in a hospital for weeks missing my family and clicking on this site from my blog. I.Want.It.
Just sayin 🙂
What an amazing giveaway!It sure would hit the spot with all these outfits I've been making for my first grandaughter.
OMG…. I so NEED one of these!
Well, I'm off to sign up for the newsletter…:)
I've been eyeing these up for awhile now. so neat! better go sign up!

This tool works magiccally
Want, want, want. Need, need, need.
This is on my Christmas list. Wouldn't it be nice if Santa came early?
oh… i soooooo need that bias tape maker! i just used bias tape on my first project. a pillowcase dress. used it around the armholes for a more finished look. i'm sure it was something i learned on Prudent Baby 😉 i Love bias tape now, and to think i was so intimidated by it before….
I am signed up for the newsletter, but never get the newsletter in my email: email@example.com
Can you help me?
I can so use a bias tape maker! I've been DIYing it with a needle pin..
I've seen the tutorials and just haven't had the chance to go out and by the manual one.
Wow – what an amazing contraption!! Thanks for sharing.
I would love to win this!

OH my gosh! This would be a huge lifesaver! Maybe I'll actually make the bias tape bag I've been dreaming about making! Maybe I can even combine the mystery trim with the bias tape and make a fancy apron! What do you think about that!
a.maze.zing! you mean i might not burn my fingertips off with steam anymore!? Too cool!
I've had this saved in my amazon cart for months now! 🙂
Why yes, yes I do want to win a Simplicity Bias Tape maker. All my bias tape making time will be shortened, and I wont have to do it at midnight anymore.
would blogger / visitor from overseas (im from aus) qualify for this or only those in the north america region? it would be great to have this – such a lifesaver this would be …
Aaaah! This is on my Amazon wish list. I keep looking over my list & hoping someone will get me this for Christmas. I must enter the November contest. Send the newsletter—send, send, send…I really need it. I'm pretty sure it will be a personal treat in the New Year if nothing else works out. Thanks for an awesome prize!
Okay so when I saw the title for this post I answered in my head as I clicked out of my reader in here " OOO ME ME ME!" <-- said in sing song voice. lol
I just signed up for the newsletter. Can you choose me, pretty please? If not, I'm glad I found this site. There are so many inspirational projects on here and I can't wait to see more on the site.
i signed up, thanks for the giveaway 🙂
I am just learning how to sew. This would be awesome.
I could totally use this!!!
OMG!!! I so want to win this (as if I don't want to win every giveaway on every blog). But seriously… this could SO improve my brand-new-still-has-the-tags-on-and-that-weird-plasticy-smell-not-so-great-yet-but-trying-very-hard sewing skills! Thanks for the chance (I already subscribe).
i've been thinking the best way to reduce my stash quickly would be to make some bias tape from a few of my idle fabrics! then i'd be inspired to make a few more bias tape bags from your awesome tutorial! i'll be waiting impatiently for the newsletter to find out how i can win this!
Oh!!! I would LOVE one of those! What a time saver!!!
Please count me in
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!
I am just getting into sewing and would LOVE this!!
Looks like a really handy dandy tool. Now, if I could just win a serger as well!!!

I totally need a magical bias tape maker,I would LOVE one of those!Thanks for an awesome prize!
I just burned myself last weekend trying to make bias tape on my own! I would get SO much use of this!
Would love to try something new with this tool!
I would L-O-V-E to win this! I'm signed up for the newsletter, too!
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.
AH-MAZING!!! My mom and I could soooooooo have fun with this!
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 am so glad I found your website! My newborn has inspired me to begin sewing!

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?
i would love win this! looks like a great tool!
Yes, yes! Pick me, pick me! I just signed up for your lovely newsletter!
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
I subscribed to the newsletter last month and I don't think I've gotten one yet, has anyone else been getting them?
What a neat idea. Store-bought bias tape can be so boring…
ALready a subscriber! I love the bias tape maker. It is on my wishlist.
wow! i really want this machine! i wish i wish!!!
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
Im argentinian and i love to win it , can i???
Im love sew for my children. wishes. annie
can santa come to my house early this year please?
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!!
Bias tape has so many uses-what a great idea!
