Seam tracers!

Seam tracers!, originally uploaded by super eggplant.

I got some more Japanese pattern books during my trip to Japan, so I have some patterns to trace. Seam allowances aren’t included in Japanese patterns, so I got some of these clever little seam tracers from Clotilde. They come in 1/4″ and 5/8″. I usually like to use 3/8″ seams, but what can you do. I guess you could be clever like Action Hero Melissa and just tape two pencils together.

I take a lot of photos with my iPhone and upload them to flickr. So, now I’m thinking I should just blog those photos from flickr with my iPhone. I can’t figure out a simple way to do this, and it doesn’t appear the mobile flickr site has that capability. Anyway, if I figure it out (and please comment if you have suggestions), I’ll probably be blogging more frequently about the usual useless stuff!

    That’s actually a pretty good idea even for those of us with seam allowances marked on the pattern. I always, even with the foot and the guides on the sewing machine, have problems with my seam allowances. Maybe if I saw a line all the way down the fabric I’d find it a bit easier!
