This week for Nifty Notions #5 I'm reviewing another Purple Hobbies product. The Jelly Roll Batting/Binding Tool was designed by Heather Snow to help with the construction of the Jelly Roll Rug.
There are several different Jelly Roll Rug patterns available and this tool will work with all of them. Click her to shop for a Jelly Roll Rug pattern.
Unfortunately the clip didn't fit my table. So I contacted Purple Hobbies to let them know. They quickly made and shipped a larger tool to fit my table. How awesome is that! Great customer service!
It fit perfectly.
However I was not completely satisfied with how it worked. As you can see below the fabric is shifting as it comes into the tool. This causes the fold to be uneven.
Here's a close up of the uneven fold. This uneven fold would take too much time to readjust.
So onward with making the rug. I tried binding clips and pinning. Both took WAY to much time.
Then I had an epiphany! What if I took it apart and laid it on its side?
This worked like a charm! Much easier to use.
Here's a short video I made to show how I used the Purple Hobbies Jelly Roll Binding/Batting Tool.
It didn't take long before I had a mound of binding sewn and ready to make a rug.
Well since you can use the code below at checkout for 20% off your entire cart at Purple Hobbies Website. I think it's a good deal!
