I really love all the stitching techniques I've seen in the gallery so I thought I'd give it a try.
I have purchased several of these templates and have to say that I really love them. They are very easy to use to assure your stitching comes out straight and evenly lined up. I love all the different patterns you get with one. For instance, this one has 4 see trough plastic 12" strips with 2 patterns on each strip for a total of 8 different patterns...which I think makes it a good value.
I especially like tools that can be used over and over. They are very versatile. You could use them as the full 12" strip to add unique borders or just a section of it for an accent.
To date I have 4 different ones and will probably get the others to add to my collection of tools in the future.
Give them a try.....I don't think you'll be disappointed.
I love these templates. I love the way stitches look on a layout but I definitely was sewing or needlepoint challenged. But now I can quickly add that extra touch because the templates have marked holes and are see through so you can easily decide where to place them on your layouts. I am definitely going to get the other sets!
Just got it today, w/the piercing tool & could not wait to bust it out and use it! It was so easy, under 20 minutes to have a hand stitched border- and w/this set I got 4 strips with each having 2 different designs, easy to use and a variety how great!
