Melissa from Fehr Trade shows a handful of pattern drafting toys – ahem, tools - that I’m absolutely drooling over. She shows off her Seam Allowance Guide magnets for the side of your scissors. She also shows what she calls a “pizza wheel measurer”, which is kind of like a rotary cutter minus a blade but with measurements all around. It allows you to get accurate measurements on curves. But what I’m having a little fit of sewing jealousy over is her Seam Allowance curve ruler. Go to her blog to read more about these tools.
