A couple of years ago, I saw a video from Missouri Quilt Company on making four at once with NO drawing lines. It is super easy and as accurate as your quarter inch seam. However, if you are going to trim them, that is easy to adjust also.
I find that sometimes the pieces want to shift, especially when I am pivoting at the corners. So, I have typically pinned them. But now - No more pinning! I decided to try using the Lapel Stick glue that I reviewed. So let me show you what I did.
First I pulled out a layer cake and of course my Lapel Stick.
|You can see the glue here but it is almost invisible and it washes away completely.|
Keith at Lapel Stick is offering my readers a fantastic deal on Lapel Stick. You can get a box of Lapel Stick - that is 40 Lapel Sticks - for only $50. The retail price on these is somewhere in the range of five dollars each, so this is an amazing deal. The price includes Fed-Ex shipping with tracking.
this deal is too good to miss. I rarely pin anymore except for garment sewing. No more pins sticking me is a good thing.
This offer is good until October 20, 2014. You could buy a box of Lapel Stick and have a gift for everyone in your Guild or sewing group. I hate to mention it, but Christmas and Hanukkah are approaching quickly. If your group does a Halloween party, you could use these for "Trick or Treat" also. But then again, you may want to keep them all for yourself after you have found how much easier they make your sewing.
