Available at Hancock’s of Paducah for only $1.49! I use mine all the time when I’m pressing up hems at the ironing board. No need to mark–just fold in the raw edge. Press. Then fold in the hem using the sliding sewing gauge to measure every few inches around the desired hem. Press and pin!
Everyone needs one of these in their sewing room as it has many uses which include:
- Anywhere you need to make consistent markings
- Measure and mark hems
- Tucks and Pleats
- Scallops and Circles – both the gauge and the slider have a hole. Place a pin in the hole at the end of the ruler. Put your marking pencil in the hole on the nylon slider half the size of desired scallop. Pivot to make scallop
- Buttonhole, Snap and Eyelet Spacing
- Mark Seam Allowances
