cutting bias strips

Somewhere I saw an easy way to cut continuous bias strips, and I can't find the method.  I know it involves sewing two sides of a piece of fabric that has identical length and width measurements, and that you then slash the resulting tube of fabric on the true bias.    What I don't remember is how to offset one edge at the beginning so that the result is one continuous strip of bias fabric.  does anyone know how to do this?
