It's that time again... time for another wonderful Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day! Welcome! For those who don't know me, my name is Jennifer and I have an Etsy shop called Slightly Biased full of handmade bias and binding tapes.

You'll probably be able to guess what I'm giving away.

The first prize is three yards of some scrumptious Amy Butler Full Moon Polka Dot in Cherry quilting (folded in half, not cut on the bias) tape!

The second prize is three yards of this springtime Diane Kappa Zinnia Garden in Teal double fold bias tape. So much better than store-bought bias tape, no? If you want to see what else Slightly Biased has to offer, don't forget to check out the store!

So what do you have to do to win? Just answer this one easy question:

What kinds of projects do you use bias tape on?

The two winners will be chosen randomly. One entry per person. The giveaway will be open until noon central time on Friday, May 27th. International entries are welcome! Good luck!
  • Minimanuals

     I use them to embelish my bags.

  •  I use bias tape to cover my dodgy hand sewing when making crazy quilts!

  • To be honest, I’ve never used bias tape as I’m terrified of it – it’s on my list of “fears to conquer” though and this might be what makes me try it! 

  • Gosh, what an interesting item to sell!!! I usually make my own bias tape.

  • Michell

    I would use them on tablerunners

  • Woolensails

     I have never used bias tape, but i got some plain black to try and just didn’t like the look. This would be fun to work with, beautiful designs and would be wonderful on a summer throw.


  • Elke Sauchella

    I use bias tape for the edges of mug rugs.

  • Sue Niven

    I would use the bias tape to make dresses for little girls.

    It’s funny, lately I’ve been using bias tape for all sorts of things.  And I hate making my own because I always seem to burn my fingers doing all that ironing!  Anyway, I’ve been binding up my fabric placemats with bias tape as well as edging toy hammocks for my shop with bias tape. :)

  • delia

    Mainly quilts. This bias tape is way better than the stuff you can buy at the store!

  • Sara

    Quilts and more quilts!

  • Bree

    it would have to be quilt binding!  beats making my own!

    I’ve only only used it for quilts.  I love this!

  • Allison Coe

    So cute!  I like to make baby bibs with bias tape, but I typically buy the boring pre-made stuff from the store. That stuff is not fun to work with, but I’m too lazy to make my own.

  • Wendy

    I’m about to use bias tape for the first time on an apron I’m making for my sister, then I have a couple of tops to make for my daughter that I’m going to use it on. Is it just me that puts off stitching for a while when there’s a new technique I need to get my head around?!?

     oh wow! your bias tape is gorgeous!

    i actually try to avoid using bias tape at all costs, because i hate how cheap the typical bias tape looks and feels. however, i recently made bias piping for an apron, and then bias binding for a quilt, and now i’m converted! i LOVE how fabric acts when it’s on the bias, and how the print changes.

  • Cass

    Don’t be too shocked but I’ve never used it!  I am brand new to sewing and was too scared by the tutorials to make my own bias tape.  I’d love to use some of yours.  It looks fantastic!
    Have a great day!

  • Wamber_the_Panda

    I typically use bias tape for projects like garment sewing.. a ton of the patterns call for bias tape to finish up the neck and armholes. I prefer straight grain bias tape for quilting, but I have used it in a pinch when I’m wanting to finish up the project quickly. I have to say though, I absolutely love your product offerings! My beef with the storebought bias tapes is that they are only solid colors and they are not 100% cotton!

  • MJ Mayer

    I love finding things to put bias tape on for my daughter’s clothes. i’ll even add ruffles just so I can bias-finish the edges of the ruffles for a unique look!

  • I love homemade bias tape! I use it to line bag handles or the edges of skirts… all kinds of things.  I rarely want to sit down and devote crafting time to making bias tape though.

  • jbrgeternity

    Colourful bias tape jollys any project it encompasses adding the final touch of colour to frame and complete it. Childrens clothing benefits form that extra zing as does any quilted project, bags pot holders, tableranners pillows, quilts of any size or shape. Pretty invaluable stuff altogether.

  • Lisa Parnell

    Wonderful stuff. I use bias tape on children’s clothing and bags.

    My favorite project using bias tape is a Cart Caddy:
    Last year I made these as Christmas gifts for about half of the women on my gift list.  I had soooo much fun coordinating the two fabrics and bias tape.  But that was all before I discovered handmade bias tape, so just imagine what I could do with some of your bias tape!

    My 3 yr old son has adopted my old (circa 1973) felted cowboy hat. Through many washings is now resembles more of a Pappa Bernstein Bear look. The cheesy silver trim is finally deteriorating, so I’m going to try some binding to finish off the edge. I’ve also been doing several potholders to get my brain around several mitering techniques used in blog tutorials.
