Handy Tape II now comes with a dispenser, which makes it easier to use.
The tape repeats every 12″, and the entire roll is 25′ long.
It also displays measurements in centimeters. See above. I don’t often write such high praise for a product – but this time I came across a product with quite a few benefits.
Personally, I really like this product, because it is portable. Portable sewing products that work, are usually a big hit with me. I can bring it to quilt guild meetings when we have an open sew day, to the pool, or whenever I am sewing away from home.
And, I also use it at home;
It is great when I am figuring out the final measurements of a small, medium or large quilt, and then calculating how much batting and backing fabric to use.
I love that it provides a 1/4″ on each side of the tape, so I can easily gauge my scant 1/4″ seam allowance, when using it for sewing on a machine.
And, the tape can be re-used more than once. It saves money and helps with carbon foot print.
BIG cavet: I do not post about products for a fee. I will except a product such as this one to test, so I can write about it.
This can be used with many other crafting and art projects. Now that it comes in a dispenser, it makes everything so much easier.
You can find Handy Tape II, made by Colonial Needle at your local quilt store.
