Loop Easy: Creative Stitching Tools by Sue Spargo
The Loop Easy is our most innovative Creative Stitching tool, designed to make perfect loops each and every time! Each set contains three templates. Each template is composed of steps that differ in height (increments: 1/8", 3/16", and 1/4in). Steps differ in length to accommodate various weights of thread. White 1/8in guides assist in marking and stitch placement. Perfect for the raised leaf stitch (instructions can be found in Creative Stitching Second Edition pg 175), grass, and blossoms, or any stitch that requires loops! Loop Easy can also be used as a measuring tool for fine details, as the guides are 1/8in apart. Directions: 1. First, remove the protective paper adhesive from each template. 2. Place Loop Easy on your project where you'd like the loops to be (for the Raised Leaf Stitch, use the edge of the Loop Easy to mark your stem length with a chalk pencil) 3. Decide the length of your loops and choose the appropriate template and step for your desired loop size 4. Bring your needle to the front of your work next to one of the white guidelines, then bring your needle to the back of your work next to the same guideline, on the other side of the template. 5. Continue this process for as many loops as you would like, using the white guidelines for even spacing 6. When you have the number of loops needed, pull your Loop Easy template out of the loops and complete your stitch as desired.
