Re: Easiest way to make straps for bags??

Sort of related (although I don't know that I would do this for straps) I also saw the coooolest sewing machine foot that makes bias tape. I've never seen one in person, but on some random PBS sewing show, they used the foot attachment to make bias tape in an instant. If you were going to be using a lot of bias tape and wanted to make it out of matching fabric, I would totally look into one of those. And then please let me come over and play with it?

ETA: This particular attachment actually folded the fabric for you AND stitched to the other piece of material. You basically cut your bias strip from fabric, then thread it in flat - from there the attachment folds it up for you and sews it down to the fabric underneath, or just sews it to itself.
