Terrific Tool Thursday: Above the Curve

I love the look of curved corners on projects. However I hate searching my cupboard for the perfect curve. Plus, using a plate can make using a rotary quite difficult. Then I found this corner tool from Creative Grids

Plus the markings help you out if you’re  making darts. There’s a center mark and inch markings. And since it’s a nice Creative Grids acrylic ruler, you get a clean rotary cut. I cut through three layers with Thermalon and three layers of lining with no trouble in one cut.

PS: So it’s Tuesday, not Thursday. Oops! I guess you’ll get a tip this Thursday;)

Terrific Tool Thursday: The Purple Thang

This week’s tool is an oldie but goodie! It’s the purple thang which is essentially this little piece of plastic that you can use for any number of things. It pokes corners. It holds fabric while you sew without pens. It turns dresdens quite well. There are many more; those are just my favorites. 

It’s really sturdy and just a bit bendy. I love the square end on dresden points! There’s even a hole to use it for turning right side out. I have a couple of these because I use them all the time. There’s one in each of my sewing bags.
