Wow, what an amazing response! Thanks, everyone, for entering the giveaway and giving me input on the bias tape you use. Since I had so many comments, I decided to make the giveaway even better!
For our first winner, I added a mostly-full spool of ribbon that matches the dots bias tape exactly. Seriously. It's uncanny. I found it in my stash and nearly squealed when I saw how perfectly it matched. The winner is #215, Genevieve!
Our second winner will receive two adorable packs of Christmas tree binding tape (not cut on the bias). The winner of this set is #21, Margaret! Congratulations! I'll send you each an email to get your mailing address shortly.
If you weren't one of the lucky winners but you still want some pretty bias tape, we're having a 10% discount on the entire store through the weekend. Use the coupon code SMSDEC10 to get your discount. I'll be adding more inventory daily, so make sure and check back often!
I learned a lot from all of your answers. One of the most common answers was that many of you aren't familiar with how to use bias tape or aren't sure if you're using it right. I'll pool together some bias tape resources about different types and how they are used. You also had some great suggestions (gingham bias tape, anyone?). Be on the lookout for some exciting additions to the store soon!

Sew, Mama, Sew! has coordinated another fabulous giveaway day. I’m so exited to participate for the first time. I have a really fun prize to give away. But first, let me announce…
my brand spanking new Etsy shop, Slightly Biased, which carries handmade (by me!) bias tape. I’m going to be focusing on cute prints, including designer fabrics, for those crafters who don’t like or want to make their own bias tape. I’ll be building up inventory over the next few weeks, so check back often!
And now for the giveaway…
Yep, you guessed it. Bias tape! And even better, it’s Christmas bias tape! Three yards each of two different prints, dots and snowflakes. The dots weren’t actually cut on the bias, so I guess technically that one is binding tape, but it’s still super cute. (It’s the same bias tape that I used on my table runner.)
So what do you have to do to enter the giveaway? Leave a comment below answering one or more of the following questions:
- What width and length bias tape do you usually use?
- Double fold, single fold, or quilting (just folded in half) bias tape?
- If you make your own, do you prefer it to be cut on the bias, or does it not matter for your usage?
- What would you like to see in my shop?
The winner will be chosen randomly; one entry per person, please. This giveaway will be open until noon central time on Friday, December 17th. Sorry, no international shipping. Good luck!
