Some of you are aware that for a while I’ve been developing some specialist tools for MIY Workshop. At last they’re ready!
Here they are:
First up the MIY Workshop little sewing tool. Made of cherry veneer wood with engraved markings you can use this handy little gadget to quickly and accurately mark 1cm / 1.5cm / 2.5cm and 5cm seam and hem lines, mark the bias at 45˚, use the point to poke out nice pointy corners in your sewing and with the aid of 2 pencils use the drill holes to draw 2cm/4cm/6cm and 8cm diameter circles.
The MIY Workshop pattern cutting and sewing ruler. Made of smokey brown see through perspex with engraved markings this ruler is useful when sewing and pattern cutting. The rulers running horizontally and vertically allow you to quickly add seam and hem allowances to your patterns up to 6cm, the horizontal ruler edge measures 30cm. The ruler also has a 90˚ right angled corner and opposite a 45˚ edge. There’s also a curved edge to help draw in smooth curves at sleeve heads and armholes. And of course it has a handy hole for hanging it up out of the way in your workspace.
