Bias Tape without a Bias Tape Maker

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to make my very first top. I chose a "Very Easy Vogue" pattern (Vogue V8815) as my practice pattern, especially because it's for a peplum top. The pattern was pretty easy to make until I got to the neck area and needed a bias tape. I could have purchased a bias tape, but since I was using a printed fabric, I wanted everything to match. I learned how to make bias tape in sewing class (The Sassy Sewer) so I knew I could do it.

In my attempt to make a bias tape, I realize that I do not have a bias tape maker. But thanks to the Internet, I was able to do some research and find out how to make a bias tape (without a bias tape maker). See the pics below.. Enjoy!

Happy DIY Sewing!
