Groovin' Piping Trimming Tool
(included in Piping Hot Binding kit)
Helps trim piping seam allowances to 1/4" or 1/2" which will increase accuracy and make working with piping much easier! Cording rides up into a groove and the seam allowance is cut next to the edge of the tool. The tool is 11.5" in length. The tool may be turned for left-handed users.
In this package you’ll find the following:
|- booklet with detailed instructions|
|- diagrams for every step|
|- suggestions for which sewing machine feet will serve you best|
|- tailored instructions for your sewing machine|
|- 7 variations including curved edges with only piping showing|
|- Groovin’ Piping Trimming Tool (to trim the piping's seam allowance and ultimately produce more accurate piping)|
|- 5 yards of 1mm cording|
The Groovin’ Piping Trimming Tool (patent pending) is used to trim the piping seam allowance to a consistent width. When piping is made, it is impossible to maintain a consistent seam allowance. Trimming the seam allowance using a traditional acrylic ruler is a time consuming chore. The Groovin’ Piping Trimming Tool makes this task quick and accurate.
After piping has been sewn, simply lay the Groovin' Piping Trimming tool over the piping allowing the cording to ride up into one of the grooves, then cut along the edge of the tool with a rotary cutter. Voila....a perfect seam allowance because the groove holds the cording in place!!!
One side of the tool is designed for a 1/4" seam allowance and the other is for a 1/2" seam allowance (wider bindings)!
