I reviewed the Nancy’s Hobo Tote Collection Trace ‘n Create Bag Templates from Clover USA on Craft Test Dummies!
At CHA this winter, Clover USA had a ton of exciting new products, but Nancy’s Hobo Tote Collection Trace ‘n Create Bag Template was definitely one of my favorites.
For me, working on this review couldn’t have come at a better time. My current handbags were all starting to look pretty rough, and I really wasn’t looking forward to the nightmare that is purse shopping. So, making my own custom bag with the fabric of my choice was the perfect alternative!
What I loved:
1. The two templates are made with a heavy, yet slightly flexible plastic. They felt solid and were easier to work with than a paper pattern.
2. The instructions contain step-by-step directions and illustrations to keep you on track.
3. The seam allowances are included in the template, so you can just cut and go with no extra measuring required …
After yesterday’s review, I just couldn’t help breaking out the googly eyes and having a little fun with the Fiskars detail scissors and seam ripper-in-one. (I mean, you can’t deny that these scissors have personality!)
Does your favorite craft tool have something to say? Slap on a googly eye or two and share your own photo below!
If I were to imagine a craft tool that was custom made for me, the Fiskars Detail Scissors and Seam Ripper-in-one with Multipurpose Organizer would probably be it. I kid you not, when I opened the package from Fiskars and pulled it out, I actually exclaimed out loud, “Oooh, they know me so well!”
From the first glance, I wanted to love this set. (Full disclosure: There’s nothing I adore more than containers. Especially containers that are made to hold very specific things.) And, now that I’ve put the scissors and organizer to the test, I’m very happy to report that both are every bit as awesome and as useful as they look!
