The 12 Days of Christmas
Creative Grids Ruler 8 1/2" x 24 1/2" for $16.90,
Wow! That is an excellent offer for an excellent ruler!
This 8 1/2" x 24 1/2" rectangle features easy-to-read black and white markings printed in 1" grids marked in 1/8" and 1/4" increments. Use the easy-to-read, numerical black numbers (printed on white dots) and the 1/4" grip sides to cut whole inches. These 1/4" grip sides accentuate the dashed lines printed 1/4" away from two adjoining edges to aid in trimming seam allowances. Use the patented Turn-A-Round feature – designated by the easy to read, numerical white numbers (printed on black dots) and the 1/2" grip sides – to add the 1/2" seam allowance. The exclusive gripper holds the fabric while cutting when pressure is applied. The ruler includes 30°; 45°; and 60° angles. White horizontal and vertical lines are printed on the rectangle so the center of the ruler is easily distinguishable.
I know a lot of us started out our rotary cutting lives with a standard 6" wide ruler. Unless you were like me and had absolutely no idea what I should use and bought a plastic 2 x 12 ruler in the office supply aisle of a drug store--what was I thinking?! Anyway, I eventually worked my way up to an 8 1/2" ruler, and loved it! I use it nearly all the time, and it is especially great for cutting wide border strips. It really does make the job easier if you use the right tools. Add a new ruler to your tool belt!
