Feeding Fabric through Tip:
When cutting bias tape fabric, finish end on an angle. Cutting a diagonal tip on the end makes feeding fabric through your machine easier.

In the video I am using the Simplicity 3/4-Inch Single Fold Bias Tape Machine Tip. All the packaging materials say to use twice the width of your desired finished size, so my tape is 1 1/2 inches wide.
As I wrote, I starched the bias tape heavily both before I cut it and then after stitching the lengths together. The machine had no problem ironing the joints.
This is going to be such a benefit for me. I made about 15 feet of bias tape in less than three minutes. Yes, you read that correctly.
I hope you find this review useful. A heartfelt thanks go out to all the comprehensive reviewers who helped me make my decision to purchase this machine.
I adore both machines!
I made a pot holder and the bias with the same fabric to match it, I'm sure I'll use it a lot.
One tip I do have, is once you have put your initial tape through the machine and it presses both sides, fold it in half and put it back through the machine. This will then press it like an iron would but so much quicker. It is then ready to use. I'm currently making aprons and have saved a fortune making my own bias tape.
I'm not sure how you are all cutting it out, but here is a fabric saver. Use a rotary blade, and cut horizontal strips 2" wide, straight across the fabric. Then sew these together. It makes gorgeous bias tape and saves a lot of time not cutting your fabric on the diagonal. I honestly didn't think it would work, but my friend is a quilter and learned this technique at a quilting class.
Scroll down the reviews to Stunningly accurate and useful!, December 22, 2012 By QueenOPearls "QueenOPearls" (Lakewood, OH) She has an amazing video which also uses the Simplicity Winder...which is my next purchase. Have fun:)
After using this machine for about a year, I found that winding the fabric onto the roller and over top of the guide was a waste of time. I get much faster & better results by hanging on to the pile of binding while letting the machine fold & press. I highly recommend this machine for anyone who has burned their fingers making binding or bias tape, or anyone who makes a lot of quilt binding.
I can't say anything about the other size tape makers, but for the supplied 1inch bias tape maker, this was great!!!
-figuring out how much fabric you need
-cutting the fabric,
-sewing the fabric,
-pressing and trimming the fabric, and
-pressing the second fold.
Then you have two new tasks: rolling the fabric onto the roller, and poking it awkwardly through the tip.
I just don't think it saved much time, particularly because the folds were really not pressed very well, and I ended up running the tape through again. I'd rather just use the cheap doohickey and my good iron and make sure it's right the first time. I wanted to be impressed with this, but I wasn't.
