cutting bias strips

downey | Posted in General Sewing Info on


Somewhere I saw an easy way to cut continuous bias strips, and I can’t find the method.  I know it involves sewing two sides of a piece of fabric that has identical length and width measurements, and that you then slash the resulting tube of fabric on the true bias.    What I don’t remember is how to offset one edge at the beginning so that the result is one continuous strip of bias fabric.  does anyone know how to do this?

    I believe you offset it the same width as you want to cut the finished strip.  Then you can start cutting and just keep going.  I find it easier to cut strips with a rotary cutter and just sew them together one after the other.  The cutting is a lot easier this way.
