Cut your fabric in strips. The width you should cut your fabric will be specified by the instructions that come with your bias tape maker. For example, with this bias tape maker you need to cut a strip that is 1 7/8" wide.

For straight edges and seams, like cover the edges of a tea towel, you can cut straight across your fabric.
