CoBloWriMo Day 18: Favorite Tool

There are all sorts of wonderful sewing gadgets out there, but the one I rely on for all my projects at some point or another is my trusty seam gauge.


My favorite type is a little multi-sided gizmo that gives a variety of measurements on both sides.


I got mine at a local fabric shop, but it can be got on Amazon here for a good price.  In fact, get the two pack.  I have at least two and they tend to escape right when I need them, so having a spare can't be a bad thing!

  1. I love my 'sewing shuriken', and was most upset when I bent and snapped it some weeks ago. A new one was ordered, post haste, and arrived quickly, I'm pleased to say. We do get very attached to our kit don't we?

    1. I love that name...I do call it my "ninja throwing star" when I've lost it and am asking my husband if he has seen it!

  2. This one looks practical! I don't have a proper measuring tool for inches yet, only cm, so I might get one of these. Or two ;)

    1. I highly recommend it! I have one that I've tied a bright red ribbon through the hole to make it easier to find, though, and it still hides from me.

  3. Yes!! I love this thing! The couch ate mine for several weeks, I was just about to buy a new one when I found it. Fantastic little device :-)
