Handy Tape II – Now It Comes With a Dispenser

Handy Tape II now comes with a dispenser, which makes it easier to use.
Love that. 

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.

    Have you ever tried the Robert Kaufman app as it figures everything for you……backing and batting, binding and other calculations…really useful…
