Next time you don’t have bias tape in the correct color, why not make your own?  All you need is…  a utility knife?  Yes, a snap-off blade utility knife!  Ever the clever one, PC from MeiJo’s Joy discovered this nifty trick, and it’s downright brilliant!  The casing of the knife is perfectly shaped for feeding the fabric through, going in one side as a plain strip and coming out the other nicely folded and ready to set into place with an iron.  It’s even a way to make use of some of your fabric scraps!  [how to make your own bias tape with a utility knife]
