Trace a Pattern with a Double Tracing Wheel | Video

With a single motion, the double tracing wheel works in tandem—one wheel marks the seamline and the other marks the cutting line.

Aug 13, 2018
Designer Kenneth D. King likes to work with precision and efficiency. One tool he swears by is a double tracing wheel. This notion has two parallel serrated tracing wheels that can be set at varying distances. With a single motion, one wheel marks the seamline and the other marks the cutting line. Kenneth demonstrates his preferred method of using the double tracing wheel with dressmaker’s tracing paper. This is an example of the expert technique videos you have access to through a Threads Insider membership.  Sign up for a 14-day Free Trial. Purchase a double tracing wheel on Amazon:

    Wonderful and helpful information! So simple but with excellent results. I quit using marking paper because it shredded to easily. I will purchase more and use the cellophane packing tape on the back. Mr. King, Thank you for sharing!

    Mr. King, thank you for sharing the benefit of the double tracing wheel. I always enjoy your videos and classees.
    Please share where to find tracing paper in a roll as in your demo.
    The small sheets wear out fast and do not always trace well.
    Thank you!
