2 1/2" Sasher
The 2 1/2″ Sasher™ Tool is PQW’s version of a bias maker. It allows you to quickly and easily fold bias or straight grain fabric strips in half (raw edges together), or perform a perfect bias fold using just the Sasher Tool and an iron.
Use the 2 1/2″ Sasher to make:
- Stems and vines for applique,
- sashing strips for Quilt As You Go quilt making,
- Bias tape for Celtic or stained glass applique,
- Bag handles,
- Binding for quilts,
- Facings and trims for dressmaking,
- Cover strips for seams and bias folds in fabrics
The 2 1/2″ Sasher is a great size for making 1 1/4″ wide bag handles. Simply put a 5″ strip through the 2 1/2″ Sasher, then through the 1 1/4″ Sasher for bag handles with no turning through (add your wadding/ batting after folding)!
You will notice that the sides of the Sasher have a curved shape. This is so the curved edge of an iron can neatly fit against the Sasher as you push it along; Which means no more burnt fingers! Pauline recommends using the mini iron as it fits perfectly in the curve of the Sasher.
Please note – the size on the Sasher is the finished size of the folded strip. If you require a 2 1/2″ finished size, cut the fabric 5″ wide and then put through the 2 1/2″ Sasher.
You’ll have perfectly folded strip every time!
Watch as Pauline shows you just how easy it is to use our Sasher™ tools.
