a little birthday present to myself

It is amazing how the littlest things can improve life so much. I had been using painters tape stuck to the needle plate of my Singer 15-91 sewing machine to measure my seam allowances. I poking around I found that you could buy a replacement needle plate for my machine that had seam allowances already marked on it. I promptly bought one for cheap off the internet and took at the results. I think it looks so much better.

Happy 4th of July !

That is awesome. I have used painter's tape myself for marking seams. Just not the same as a plate, is it?
