In February 2017 I started “Bias Month,” in which I shared a bunch of sewing lessons on what bias is and how to use bias tape in various ways. I also included included some practical tutorials and a free sewing pattern.

Years ago I saw a craft project of several village-type houses and businesses like a barber shop, post office, saloon, blacksmith…all made from bias tape. The “village” was made to go across the top of a door frame or window frame. Would you happen to know where I could find the instructions for this?
Hi Joan, sorry, but I can’t even picture what it is that you’re describing! Do you mean like bias tape around a wire that is bent to make the shapes of these buildings?
