Awesome Tool for a perfect 1/4 inch seam and no-mark-no-paper half-square triangles


I have been using this "Sew Easy Guide - 2" since August 2011 designed by Sara of "Sew Together".  The time it saves me is incredible.  I no longer have to risk leaving a mark on the fabric and it be ruined because of it.  I keep a perfect 1/4 seam with a scant (when I'm not sleepy or distracted...hehehe) It also makes half square triangles without running a line down the middle first with this clear guide that you stick to the bottom of your presser foot. It is removable and reusable.  The size I have is 11.25 inches and works on squares that have sides up to 7 1/2 inches that means no-mark-no-paper half-square triangles!  I use mine all of the time and would suggest it for people of any level who wants to save time!  :-)

***UPDATE***:  Sara has now given directions on how to make a Sew Easy Guide Baby!  Great idea since I am getting ready to buy the refill pack!  =)
