Cool Tools

Ever think of using Bias tape as ribbon in your designs? I found a great shop on Etsy recently that carries the most gorgeous Liberty of London bias tape in many floral patterns. I haven't ordered any yet because of my spending freeze (saving for Bead & Button) but I hope to soon! They also carry fabric too, that could be cut into ribbons if you fancy that rustic look.

The shop is called  Fabrique Romantique and they are based out of Amsterdam, Netherlands. I love the photography though which is why I am featuring this shop over the others that carry the tape on Etsy. There are a few. :)

Bias tape is a folded piece of material used to bind seam edges for a nice finished look.  It's folded width is 10mm, unfolded is 40mm.

I love the Liberty of London floral patterns, so fresh and classic.

If you try it let me know, I'd love to see how it turns out and of course I will blog mine when I finally order some and use it.


  1. I have used bias tape for paper crafting but never in jewelry design. What a fun idea, there are so many possibilities! I only have it in solid colors though, I've never seen it in such beautiful patterns!

    Rebecca Anderson has included it in her Curious Club kits, it's fun to work with! I used some in my post for the Waxed Linen hop too. Thanks for the link, will have to check it out.

  3. It is super easy to make your own bias tape! All you really need is fabric you love and an iron (Dritz also makes a tool that can help, but you don't need it.)

  4. I love the look of these bias tapes! I have used it in jewelry, but most with solid colors ... these are so much fun
