I was so excited to try out the Clearly Perfect Slotted Rulers from Kari Carr of New Leaf Stitches!
I love the versatility of triangle-squares and I make A LOT of them, but trimming them is so time-consuming. After a few practice rounds with the Slotted Trimmer tools, I think this will instantly become a favorite for me!
Here’s how it works: you place the dashed line of the ruler on the seam line of your unopened triangle-square (the gray area is your 1/4″ seam allowance). I was making 3-1/2″ finished triangle-squares in my example.
I would highly recommend the Clearly Perfect Slotted Trimmers! The markings on the ruler are clear, the tool is easy to understand, and the rotary cutter slides easily along the ruler and fits perfectly in the side slots. I think this will really change how I view trimming triangle-squares and will make sewing more enjoyable.
Thanks, New Leaf Stitches, for this tool! You can buy this tool from her website here.
Thanks for joining me for “happy hour,”
