Seam Allowance Guide

The most time consuming and also one of the most frustrating part of sewing is adding a seam allowance
We want to sew and we want to do it NOW!
The most time consuming and also one of the most frustrating part of sewing is adding a seam allowance to all your pattern pieces.
Using the Seam Allowance Guide you no longer have to measure and trace around each individual piece, the Seam Allowance Guide will do that for you while you cut out your fabric, so you can spend more time on the fun stuff.
Seam Allowance Guide is perfect for:
•Burda Style Magazine Patterns
•Japanese Pattern books
•Copying your own clothes
•Designers creating patterns from scratch
•Left or right handed scissors
•Picking up pins!
Green or Yellow?:
The Seam Allowance Guide uses a rare earth magnet which is extremely strong. Some scissors blades have a slight slope on the outer edge. This is about 3 degrees. If your scissor blade is sloping put the yellow guide on and rotate it until it's parallel to the table/fabric.
The green guide is used for scissors that have no slope on the outer edge of the blade. Also great for the tip or at the pivot of the scissors. Both are included in the packet.
Where on the blade do I position it?
This will depend on your cutting style and the pattern shape. For long straight cutting, position it further back towards the handles. For curved patterns where the cutting action is smaller position it closer to the tip. As a rule the guide sits where the two blades separate during the cutting motion.
For right handed sewers.
The pattern piece goes to the right of your scissor blade - Cut clockwise around the pattern. The guide sits on the right hand blade.
For left handed sewers.
The pattern piece goes to the left of your scissor blade - Cut anti-clockwise around the pattern. The guide sits on the left hand blade.
