What is it? - Sewing is all about
construction. Before we can
apply even the very first stitch we have to make sure our fabric is cut,
folded and pressed to very specific dimensions. The fabric must be
manipulated into the shapes that will result in the conclusion of that
vision. Sharp scissors and a rotary cutter will make the shapes. But
what about the creases or folds?

What's the best way to do that? Simple . .
. Clover's Fabric Folding Pen. Think of a felt tip pen that is filled
with what amounts to be a very unique fabric softener. Just remove the
cap and with the felt tip trace either a straight or curved wet bead
line on your fabric. The fluid from the pen causes the fabric fibers to
relax at the point of application. Now you can fold along that specific
line with ease and either finger press or iron to form a sharp, lasting
edge. The pieces of your project can now be assembled easily and
precisely and they will look great! This is FANTASTIC for English Paper Piecing and applique!
Any crease or hem you want to form can be
made very quickly with our without an iron. Use a straight edge to lay
down the wet bead line and then simply fold over and finger press or
iron. Even the most detailed designs can be accomplished. This is an
especially useful tool when working with minimum seam allowances.
The Fabric Folding Pen is a natural for
appliqué or reverse appliqué. You can either trace or freehand any line
that forms your design. These "relaxed" fibers will allow you to
easily manipulate your fabric around that line. Doing patch pockets?
Same principle. Trace the shape you want, fold along the line, press
and then stitch in place. Easy peezie.
Ever go to a sewing class
and have to wait forever to use the iron? No more. Take your Fabric
Folding Pen and you'll be ahead of the rest of the class all night.
We've all bought a piece of fabric that had
an unwanted crease across it or perhaps we accidentally formed one
while ironing. What's the easiest way to get rid of it? Trace over the
unwanted seam with the Fabric Folding Pen, iron and it's gone. Think
of it as reverse ironing.
What do you do when the pen fluid is
used up? No worries, they're refillable. Mix a few drops of fluid
concentrate with tap water and you're good to go. By the way, the fluid
is unaffected by ironing
You'll Never Sew Without It Again!
