CLEARLY PERFECT SLOTTED TRIMMERS

From New Leaf Stitches

Retail: $31.95

 

This recent product from New Leaf Stitches designer Kari Carr offers an easy and efficient way to square up half-square triangles. Simply align the seam of an unpressed half-square triangle with the dashed lines on the Slotted Trimmer, and trim all four sides. The edge slots allow users to trim dog ears at the same time. There’s no need to rotate the fabric and realign. The Slotted Trimmers can also be used to square up glass blocks, for strip piecing of half-square triangles, and strip-tube method of block construction and fussy cutting. Each package includes two Slotted Trimmers (which can trip up to 11 sizes from 1.5” to 6.5”).

SEW DRESSED UP

From Robert Kaufman Fabrics

 

We’ve seen our share of sewing-design-themed fabrics, but what sets this new collection from designer Niamh Fitzsimmons apart is its inclusion of a print featuring dress patterns among its designs. Other prints include sewing-related motifs like sewing machines, needles, thread, scissors, and even dress forms. The collection is available in two color stories: Seafoam (seafoam, pinks, and grays) and Navy (blues, pinks, and grays).
