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 inlay. And almost all of it is monophonic. You can try to cut out a similar ribbon for trimming from a rectangular long piece of fabric. This bake is suitable for direct parts. And you can cut it on the side, 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 the one and the other method is 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 even bending of the fabric can be made independently. It will take only a thick cardboard, and the correct calculation of sizes. You can design such a device for making 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:

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

We start by calculating the slot width. The tape is folded in such a way that each edge is twice the central part. Therefore, the upper slot will be wider than the lower two times. 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 slot will be narrow enough, because only one layer of fabric passes through it.

The upper slot is placed 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. Separate the rectangle with the vertical axis from which we lay the cuts 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 the upper 4-centimeter will be 4 cm. The second small one is cut at least 3 cm below the first.

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. Stretch the tape very slowly to control the width of the bake.

You can immediately fix the hem with an 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 tape as a tie, 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.

In this way, belts, bows and other decorative details can be cut out.

So, for example, the drawstring, made according to the described scheme, looks.

Now you can make ribbons of any width and color.
