I'm sure I am not the only sewist who gets excited by a clever gadget that makes sewing a little easier and faster. The nifty Seam Allowance Guide, which I mentioned back here, is definitely one of those gadgets.
Even more exciting, the makers of the Seam Allowance Guide have given me not one, but three seam allowance guide sets to give to my wonderful readers! Woot woo!
Each set contains two guides, one for flat edge scissors and one for scissors with a slanted blade. You also get an extra couple of black bands, which I guess are handy to have if you ever lose one. These little black bands are the marker that you use to cut your fabric. They can be moved along the guide to change the seam allowance that you want to cut. This is especially helpful if you want to add a greater seam allowance on a highly fitted garment, like a pair of pants, so you have more seam width to play with to get the fit right. Clever, right?
Now, to get your hands on one of these little gems, just leave a comment below telling me which pattern you would use a Seam Allowance Guide for - Ottobre? Japanese? It would also be nice to see you become a follower of my blog - over there in the Google Friend Connect . I love being able to see my readers and look at their blogs.
I'll leave the competition open until 7pm Sydney time on Sunday 25 March.
