Diagonal Seam Tape

This notion created by Cluck Cluck Sew is flying off the shelves and we just got in another order so it is in stock!!!

Diagonal Seam Tape

I was teaching a class on Saturday and someone thought that you put this on the diagonal of the fabric – not true! It sticks to your sewing machine – right in front of the feed dogs. The red line aligns with your needle, the blue lines are the sewing lines – 1/4″ away from the red line.

A roll is 10 yards – and since you just need a small piece – it lasts a good long time! When you are ready to remove it, it comes right off – no pesky residue!

Half-square triangles have never been easier – no more drawing lines. But remember, this works just as well when sewing snowball blocks! I can’t wait to try it when I am making my Geese in the Cabin blocks – a Cut Loose Press™ Plus pattern (#CLPPLUS001)!

Geese In The Cabin Cut Loose Press Plus

Adding those triangles to the corners just got a whole lot easier! This pattern showcases the Creative Grids® Log Cabin Trim Tool for 10-inch blocks (#CGRJAW10).

Table Runners with A Modern Flare

What a great series of classes or online videos! Why not offer a table runner of the month instead of a block of the month? The designs are dramatic but simple so most of the work can be done in class. And, many of the runners offer opportunities to teach different techniques and tools.
