Recently I made some spagetti straps for a little dress of mine. I started with a 1 inch wide or so strip - the width does not matter much since you will trim the allowance later. I cut mine on the bias. I then used the 1/4" seam foot. Instead of running the cut edge against the guide of the foot, I ran the folded edge against the foot. I fed the foot carefully so that the fabric was slack and not stretched out going into the foot. Since the fabric was cut on the bias, it tried to stretch. When I finished sewing, I trimmed the seam allowance to about 1/8". I used a 10" long loop turner made by Dritz. Once I turned it, I had my best spagetti strap ever.

Great tip! I do not yet own a loop turner, but I'll bet you can guess what my next notion purchase will be? ;)
