I love it when people have problem and then find a simple solution. I came across this the other day 'Seam Allowance Guide' and I just love the simplicity of it. It's a cute little tool to go on your scissors that make it easy to cut out all those wonderful Japanese patterns. I usually add my seam allowance to the paper pattern as I have been known to forget and cut things out without the seam allowance. Not often but at times when I am distracted by the younger member of my household. Anyway I am awaiting my delivery to see if it is as good as it looks. I'll let you all know how it works when I get it.
