Our 5/8″ 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 5/8″ Sasher Tool to make stems and vines for applique, sashing strips for Quilt As You Go quiltmaking, bias tape for celtic or stained glass applique and bag handles.
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!
Please note – that the size on the Sasher tool is the finished size of the folded strip. If you require a 5/8″ finished size, cut the fabric 1 1/4″ wide and then put through the 5/8″ Sasher.
Making Face Mask Ties
In addition, our 5/8″ Sasher Tool is the perfect size for making ties for face masks. Please follow the step-by-step instructions below. You can also purchase our Face Mask Creative Set, which includes the Template Ruler for making the actual face mask.
Step 1: Cut strips across width of fabric 11/4” wide.
Step 2: Lay the fabric wrong side up on ironing surface.
Step 3: Fold both sides of fabric in until they meet in the centre, press first 11/2”.
Step 4: Thread fabric strip up from the bottom of the Sasher, then over the bar and back down. Making sure the fold is facing up.
Step 5: Pin the end of the fabric strip into ironing surface with a Fork Pin. This gives even tension on each side of the strip and stops any stretching as you iron.
Step 6: Put the side of the iron into the curve of the Sasher tool. Push the tool with the iron as you guide the sides of the strip with your fingers. Move the pin about every 15” of pressing to eliminate stretching of fabric.
Step 7: You are now ready to sew the strips along the folded edge of the mask and along the length of the tie by top stitching all along the edge you just pressed.
