Love this tool

This past weekend was all about finishing projects, including blocks for swaps and a gift for an upcoming birthday.  

This tool came in handy.  It's a Bias Tape Maker.  They come in various sizes for different widths of tape.

I've made a vow to not buy any more wrapping material.  Despite the fact that I have a ton of it stuck in a box underneath the bed in our guest room (who doesn't), it's not the most environmentally conscious.  

Instead, I'm making fabric gift bags.  One, they look cool, but, two, they're reusable for other gifts or any other application.  The gift bags all have a drawstring closure of some sort, so I figured a few of these tools might come to good use.  I made a gift bag in under an hour this morning, and the bias tape maker definitely made it go faster.

As for this particular gift bag, you'll have to wait until next week to see it.
