I just used the 1-inch Tape Maker to make 28 feet of bias for 4 bibs I making. What a breeze this was with the Tape Maker! This is not the first time I have used this Tape Maker. It is truly a product that you need if you are making baby clothes, blankets or quilts. The best part is that I can make bias in any color whenever I want. I don't have to start a project and then run out to the store to find (hopefully find) just the right color for my project. One reviewer wrote that the fabric doesn't feed into the maker very well. My experience has been (and I've used the maker quite a bit) is that you should cut your starting edge into a "V" point and feed that through the maker. A little piece will stick out and you can grab it or stick it with a straight pin. Your ready to quickly and perfectly whip out a tape of any size you desire.

I'm relatively new to sewing and didn't quite connect the dots on this bias tape maker. It works perfectly. It's a little tricky to maneuver the fabric through, but a tool can help you. On the other side, you get perfectly folded "tape" you press with an iron as it gets pulled through. No burned fingers! However, the 1" tape maker actually only makes 1/2" tape once folded. I really wanted 1" AFTER it was folded for a project. My bad. Otherwise, it works well and if 1/2 tape is what you need, this will do the job!

I thought this would be a really cool little tool. Well, in a way it is but compared to how I already make bias tape...not so much. I make bias by cutting the length of fabric...fold it in half and iron. Open and fold raw edge to the center fold and press, fold other side raw edge to center and press then fold in half again and press.. and I have bias tape.

This tool, kind of does the same thing...but the problem I had was getting it into the cornered U shape opening. You slide it in there, then have to have something (I used my seam ripper) to pull it through the tool to the other side. Once there, you have to go back and make the fabric slide in the Ushape specifically...once side, bottom and other side. And it has to STAY that way or it won't pull through right. So it took probably 5 min to get it to do and stay right, and then, once in there, yes, you pull it through and have your iron ready and just iron, pull the tool away from the iron and more "bias" will come out and just follow with the iron. Another minor problem I had was the fabric can slide down on the U shaped side and it won't be even sides once it gets to the iron side. Kind of have to do it slowly.

Does it work as is stays? Yes. Is it easier? Kind of. Is it quicker? I'd say no. I have 35 years of sewing talents and my way is quick and easy. Will I use the tool? Maybe. Could be I just need to use it and get a good handle on it. However....this is not something I do with to many projects...currently I have just made aprons for my grand kids for christmas and pulled the straps with this. Other than that...I don't really have a use for it to often. But...give it a try. For $8 give it a try!

These Clover Bias Tape Makers are perfect! They are easy to use; Cut strips of fabric (on bias or grain) and slowly slide it through the tape maker with a hot steam iron on the narrow side and you have your own bias tape in any color or pattern to match whatever you're making.

Easy to use-- but definitely follow the advice to cut the fabric end into a point or you'll never get it in. Requires attention to detail or fabric can get twisted. I LOVE LOVE LOVE being able to make my own bias tape and this tool makes it so easy!

I clicked four stars because it is better than "OK" but I would not say I love it. I never had one before, and have been folding my bias strips manually, which was time consuming and a bit cumbersome. IT HELPED me to use an inch-wide strip of heavy paper to get the folds straight and even. The first time I used this I was pleased, but because I make A LOT of bias tape, I've had opportunity to run into a few glitches - some of which were corrected by reverting to my inch-wide strip of heavy paper - not exactly progress.

Here are two of the issues that I have with this device that can be problematic.

ONE is the seams. When you sew two-inch strips of fabric together end to end, to fold into half-inch bias tape, the first step is to fold in the edges, iron, then fold that strip in half. That's all there is to making bias tape. Before taking that first step, I like to iron open all of the seams in the strip, which makes the final tape less bulky around the seam areas. Since you insert the end of the strip into this device and pull it through, it does not like open seams; they tend to bunch up. It wants all the seams to be pressed away from the direction you are pulling the fabric. Hence, more bulk than necessary where two pieces of fabric meet. Maybe not a problem with long strips of the same color, but when the effect you are working for is a colorful patchwork with many short pieces, it can be an issue.

Issue TWO is that this works best with a certain weight of smooth fabric. As I am using a variety of colors in my tape, not all the fabrics are the same weight. If it is too thick, it does not pull easily through the device. If it is too thin, the fabric can be too relaxed and may twist in on itself halfway through and come out in a gnarled mess.
