I'm not bias, but my tape is.

I like gadgets, but I'm not the kind of girl who has to go get every single nifty thing on the market. After coming across a pattern for a bias tape bag and seeing their tutorial for making bias tape I figured I'd give it a shot.  Except I didn't want to use store bought bias tape, I wanted something cuter.
Ben had given me a Jo-Ann's gift card for Mother's Day and I figured this was the perfect time to use it.  I bought myself this little beauty and some extra heads so I can change the size of my bias tape.

 I ended up with my own custom bias tape.  I cut up a box to make little cards to wind the bias tape on. This stuff is cuter and cheaper than what you get at the store.  I have so many other projects lined up (as you can see by the fabric in the first picture) I can't wait to make more bias tape.

The bag is adorable and the first new bag I've gotten in a while. I mainly use the diaper bag for my things so it's neat to not only have a new bag but one that is reversible as well.

Wait - so you made the handles of the bag with bias tape? It's very cute! :)

yup, the handles are home made bias tape.  I used it the other day and they're really strong.
