A square ruler is really useful when you're sewing, but I've never been able to find exactly what I was after - so I designed my own.  Then I thought if I find this handy, other people might like it too, and here we are.

  • Metric or imperial, sewing or quilting.


  • Gift options available.

  • Starts at zero on the outside corner AND the inside corner.  You can work with it whichever way best lets you see what you're doing.  

  • Cut outs make easy work of adding or subtracting seam and hem allowances

  • ​These  are big enough to use with a chalk pencil directly onto your fabric, and shaped so you can use them with an ordinary pen or pencil on your paper pattern.  

  • Trace along the line of your pattern with the marker at the top, and keep your pencil in the cut out. 

  • Using the inside corner to add either a deep facing or hem allowance

  • Seam guides on all sides, at 1.5cm on the metric ruler and at 5/8" on the imperial

  • Quilter's ruler with a 1/4" square cut out for checking your needle position and marking seam allowances.  Useful for bra-making too!
