|When cutting out a bias cut item, invariably there is a lot of waste. These pieces are shaped oddly, and never seem to be big enough to create a second wearable item without compromising the first item.
Place a row of books along where you've cut your bias piece and cut off strips in the width of the bias tape you'd like to have. Then iron it, in half or in quarters, lengthwise.
There you are, custom bias tape. Fewer scraps!
Even little chunks are fun on aprons, doll clothes, inside shoulder seams... etc
