Whether you’re new to sewing/crafting or have been making your own clothes for years, you have the choice of marking notches etc using traditional methods or using the handy gadgets Prym offers you.
I still feel most comfortable using pins and basting pattern marks on fabrics.
The cute needle storage gadget you see is the needle twister from Prym.
When I need to take a sewing kit with me to work or a function I use the Prym needle twister with pre-threaded needles. It happens from time to time.
Traditional marking methods using pins, needles and thread still do the trick.
Innovative marking tools
I was able to experiment with Prym’s newer marking products – part of Prym’s ergonomic red dot range.
The parallel tracing wheel has markings on it so you can safely mark 1.5cm, 2cm and 4cm seam allowances in a white chalk. These markings are on both sides of the bar so you can be either left or right handed to use it.
The spring tape measure is a great shape and doesn’t slip out of your hands too quickly.
The ergonomic tracing wheel is a good shape that let’s you mark a lot of seams without tiring your wrist.
The sew and knit gauge is a long time fave of mine.
The marking pen is white so it works on lots of colours and is fine enough to keep you accurate.
