Spoke Easy: Creative Stitching Tools by Sue Spargo
Designed exclusively in our studio for accurate placement and length of spokes, these special templates were the first in our series of Creative Stitching tools. Each set contains six templates; each template has a different number of spokes, ranging from five to ten. With 1/8in guides, you can make a circle ranging in size from a 1/4in to 1-1/2in in circumference. The possibilities are endless! Use for Whipped + Woven Circles, Picot's, Eyelet Wheels + much, much more! Dimensions: 2-3/4in x 2-1/8in x 3/4in Conveniently sized and great for stitching on the go! Directions: First, remove the protective paper adhesive from each template. Then determine where you'd like your stitch to appear and how many spokes you'd like it to have. Place it on your piece. There are five white circles connecting the spokes an 1/8" apart - these will help you keep all spokes the same size. Apply a small amount of pressure to keep the template in place. Choose a circle size for your stitch and place your chalk pencil inside the templates spoke at this point, drawing a line to the center. Move to the next spoke making sure to start from the same circle as the previous spoke. Repeat this process until you have traced all the way around the template. Alternatively, these templates can also be used without tracing, just hold them to your piece and stitch right through them! Most needles will work, an exception would be a Milliners #15. It's that easy, perfectly symmetrical woven stitches every time!
