Simplicity Bias Tape Maker UPDATE

Hear ye Hear ye

The High Standards Court will come to order (banging of gavel sound) All fine subjects heed the proclamation that there will be a temporary delay on two of the Bias Tips for the Simplicity Bias Tape Maker.

Our Fearless and Brave Bias Tip Leader, Mimi Shimp, Product Manager for Simplicity Creative Group, has delayed the production on the 1/8” and ¼” single fold bias tips until they pass her high standards …lets hear three cheers for Mimi!!!

Imagine Mimi in this lovely dress now :)

End of Proclamation :)

So if you have been waiting to get the 1/8" and 1/4"'ll just have to wait until Mimi gives the go ahead.  Don't you just love it when people care enough to do the best thing for us?  I would have been disappointed had they come out and they were not what I expected.  Mimi takes good care of us!!! 

In case you don't know what I'm even talking about here it is in all it's glory....The Bias Tape Maker by Simplicity.

3/8" Single Fold Tip

1/2 " Single Fold Tip

 3/4" Single Fold Tip

1 1/4" Single Fold Tip

Quilt Binding Tip for 2 1/4" cut strip

Quilt Binding Tip for 2 1/2" cut strip



  1. OH Wow! That thing is da BOMB!! I kid you not, I burned my finger 2 times THIS MORNING pressing 410" of binding in half so that later today I can attach it to my quilt when the twins are napping!

    I'm so glad you added the demo video of this! Now I know exactly what I want for my birthday this summer! ;)

    Love from Texas! ~bonnie

  2. Kelly, you know how much I *ADORE* the Simplicity bias tape maker... even got one for oldest stepdaughter for her birthday...

    Thanks for keeping us up to date.

  3. I'm very excited about these new tips! Very cool!


  4. It is not like I can go eat something to ward off temptation of your notions.....maybe I can go play with a new ruler....would that help? You are just your realm you are evil....

  5. I shared your blog address along with the same youtube video over on my Facebook today and got several replies... I hope that they find their way here to your blog where you have it on sale for much cheaper than ;)

    Thanks again for posting this... I've been thinking of this thing all day! ;) and will make a blog post later tonight of what I got done with my binding and link back to your post ;)

    love from Texas! ~bonnie

  6. Kelly,
    I sent a message to Simplicity that I'd love for you to mention to MImi. I do a lot of piping and would love a tip that would fold strips in half and press them. That would make this machine even more versatile.
