Bias Tape is a narrow strip of fabric, cut on the bias (UK cross-grain). Many strips can be pieced together into a long “tape”. Bias tape's width varies from about 1″ to about 3″ of Tartan Fabric. Bias Tape and ribbon are used to bind and enclose straight or curved fabric edges. When used as a trim, they also provide a decorative color accent to clothing and crafts. It is often used on the edges of quilts, placemats, and bibs, and as a simple strap or tie for casual Tartan Fabrics bag or clothing.
