A small tricky device for making beakes of any size

An oblique backing may be needed for trimming the edge or using it as a tie. But in the hardware store most often sell a standard size inlet. And almost all of it is monophonic. You can try to carve a similar ribbon for decoration from a rectangular long piece of fabric. This bake is suitable for direct parts. And you can cut on a scythe, and it is perfect for processing rounded armholes and flared skirts.

The most difficult thing is to make the edges of the tape be bent equally. The problem is that they need to somehow fix, so that they do not diverge. You can either fasten them with pins or chop by hand with large stitches. But both ways are very laborious. On the other hand, it is completely unsuitable for thin fabrics, as punctures may remain.

There is a way out! A small device for smooth bending of the fabric can be made independently.It will take only a tight cardboard, and the correct calculation of the dimensions. You can design such a device to make a tape of any width. On the one hand, you can buy a similar metal bending tool in the sewing accessories shop. But you need a new fixture every time you need a new width tape.

A homemade podbibatel made of materials that are always at hand. You can independently determine the width of the tape. And if you need a different size - just cut out a new fixture from the cardboard.

For the manufacture of podgibeta by your size you will need:

  • dense cardboard;
  • cutter;
  • pencil;
  • sharp scissors.

We start with the calculation of the slot width. The tape is folded in such a way that each edge is twice the central part. Therefore, the upper slit will be twice as wide as the lower one. That is, if you need a tape 4 cm wide, you take a piece of fabric 8 cm wide. The top slot will be the same width. So the rectangle itself should be wider. You need to add a minimum of half a centimeter in each direction, but more can be done to make the construction more durable.The upper slit will be narrow enough, because only one layer of fabric passes through it.

Place the upper slot at least 1 cm from the edge of the device. Its width will be about 3 mm. The width of the lower slots will be equal to the width of the tape. Divide the rectangle by the vertical axis, from which we lay off the segments of the slots. The distance from the top slot to the first small one will be the same as the width of the small slots. That is, if you need a tape 4 cm wide, then from an 8-centimeter slot to an upper 4-centimeter there will be 4 cm. The second small one is cut at least 3 cm below the first one.

Now you can test our device. Insert a strip of fabric into the upper, wider slot, then into the first narrow, then into the second. Stretch the fabric, crushing the edges.

Secure the edges of the tape with a pin for safety. Pull the tape very slowly to control the width of the bake.

You can immediately fix the hem edge of the iron. But for most fabrics, you can simply press with your finger or the blunt edge of scissors.

If you want to use such a bake as a string, you need to cut it in a straight line. After that, simply fold the tape in half and sew.To process the edge, you need a real oblique backing, cut at a 45-degree angle to the warp threads.

Thus, you can cut out belts, bows and other decorative details.

So, for example, the kuliska stitched according to the described scheme looks.

Now you can make ribbons of any width and color.
