-Make your project so much easier with these useful products from Sewline. Hi! I'm Beth and if you're a quilter or just like to sew, you know that having the right tools really makes your project go more smoothly. Let's talk about this tool. It's a really hand, 3-in-1, fabric marking tool from Sewline. One click and we've got a black lead. This lead ceramic so you get a really nice clean, crisp line, and it's easy to erase. This is great for your lighter fabrics and because the lead is ceramic, it stays sharp longer too. Another click and we've got a white lead. This is good for your darker fabrics and then if you want to erase these lines, it's got a handy eraser under the cap or you do a lot of marking and easing. You might to pick this convenient [unk] erasers little bigger and this eraser is specially designed to keep the particles out of your fabric weaves so they don't get all stock in there. Also, both leads are water soluble, so you can also use on damp cloth or throw them in the washing machine to remove the lines. Now, the 3rd thing on this tool is a blink stylus. This is great for tracing or making indentations on fabric. So, I've got a pattern here with some graphite paper and I am going to just trace around the pattern. This is from American Patchwork and Quilting, and I've got this little shape here and it's done, so we've got our faint little bind that now we can cut and use this for applique, and speaking of applique, saw line also makes a really handy tool for this as well. It's a fabric glue pen and it's a blue glue. It dries clear and it's also water soluble. This is really great when you have these little pieces that you just don't really wanna pin. It'd just be inconvenient, so we'll just throw a little glue on the back and tack it down. It dries really fast and if you would like to move your piece after the glue is dry, you still can. It's repositionable. This one, I glued on earlier, but I can---- , as you can see, I can just peel it off and just put a little more glue on and then reposition it if you did not get it quite where you wanted it. Now, you can just take it over to the sewing machine and sew your pieces on. This is good for hemming, quilting, or just general sewing anytime you think pins might be a pain. Sewline also makes this really cute little pencil case. It's pretty in pink and this is perfect for storing all your Sewline products. This makes a great gift for yourself or anyone who sews.
