seam allowance guide

As a beginner, I wish I had one of these....a magnetic seam allowance guide.  What a great idea!!

It gives you a hard edge to move the fabric against as a guide.  It's magnetic and you can move it around to various seam allowances.  It works best on a machine that has a large metal plate area.  There are some machines that have tiny plates...painters tape or masking tape might still be a good idea for those types of machines.  It really has improved the kid's sewing by using this guide!  Give it a try if you struggle with consistent seam allowances.

Guess what I just bought? I like to buy things related to sewing and then never actually take time to sew...unless I'm at your house. :)
