Tiger Tape Revisited
submitted by Suzanne Sandoval
from Threads #104
For a tiny ruler I can’t lose, I put a 1/2-inch piece of Tiger Tape on my left thumbnail (I’m right-handed). Then when I’m hand-stitching or hand-embroidering, the way I hold my thumb allows me to gauge stitches quickly and effortlessly. Now my stitches have even depth and width, and for me, that’s important.
What is tiger tape?
Tiger tape is tape marked with lines, sort of like a ruler with no numbers. I found it as a quilter's notion with markings for 9 divisions of an inch.
