I'm pretty sure the printable bias tape maker and pencils-taped-for-seam-allowance are going to change my life. Thanks for sharing!

I tried the seam allowance pencil thing, it was awesome! I also put an sharpened pencil sandwiched between two pencils to enlarge the pattern a bit as well. Worked great! I'll have to make myself a ribbon holder. That is awesome!

These tips are awesome! Do you know how many oatmeal cannisters we go through, and the tangled mess that is my ribbon? I love it!
