Loop Easy Creative Stitching Templates by Sue Spargo
Designed exclusively in the Sue Spargo studio, Loop Easy is the latest Creative Stitching tool, designed to make perfect loops every time! Connected by a ball-chain and clasp so that they can easily be separated and used freely, each template is composed of steps that differ in height (increments: 1/8 in., 3/16 in., and 1/4 in.) Steps differ in length to accommodate various sizes of thread. White 1/8 in. guides assist in marking and stitch placement. The Loop Easy templates are perfect for the raised leaf stitch, grass, and blossoms, or any stitch that requires loops! Loop Easy can also be used as a measuring tool for fine details, as the guides are 1/8 in. apart. Conveniently sized and great for stitching on the go! To use, 1) Place Loop Easy on your project where you'd like the loops to be. 2) Decide how long you would like your loops to be, and choose the appropriate template and step for your desired loop size. 3) Bring your needle to the front of your work next to one of the white guidelines, then bring your needle to the back of your work next to the same guideline, on the other side of the template. 4) Continue this process for as many loops as you would like, using the white guidelines for even spacing. 5. When you have the number of loops needed, pull your Loop Easy template out of the loops and complete your stitch as desired, or leave the loops as they are. The possibilities for this tool are endless, get creative and experiment with different threads and stitches!
