When Twill Tape Guy first sent us all that fantastic twill tape, Susan and I came up with about 14 projects for it before we even came up for air. Then Twill Tape Guy added, “oh, I can also do custom printing on the twill tape if you’d like.” Um, Yes Please!
My first idea for twill tape was hemming, because really, how much easier does hemming get? Just sew that strip of tape around and bam! You’re done! No measuring, no folding, no pressing.
But hemming with printed twill tape? NOW you’re talking!
I had this Japanese Red Riding Hood fabric that had been collecting dust for a year because it was too beautiful to use on just anything. Well, it finally found it’s purpose in life. I sent Twill Tape Guy my idea and he printed it out and had it back to me in a jiffy (that’s a technical term there). Now I have a Red Riding Hood print skirt with the text from Little Red Riding Hood printed around the hem! It doesn’t get much cuter than that.
The text continues all the way around the hem:
