CHA- Tools : We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy

Reported by Simone Collins

In recent years, We R Memory Keepers has become pretty well known for their crafting tools like the Crop-A-Dile.  Well, now they have developed a tool to make stitching on your paper projects simpler.  They call it the Sew Easy.

Now you can add stitching to your projects without taking out your sewing machine or lugging one with you when you’re crafting on the go.  Each Sew Easy Piercer makes a different pattern of holes and allows you many options for stitch design depending on how you thread the embroidery floss through the holes.  You can also run your piercer in a variety of shapes, so you are not limited to straight stitches.
The Sew Easy stitch piercer (roller-type tool) creates indentations, or perforations, on your surface. Use the piercing mat to protect your dining table! Then with a handy needle that comes with your tool, and some Sew Easy floss, you can make some hand-stitched, groovy borders, focal areas and embellishments along the tracks that you’ve made. There are scallop, zigzag, and blanket stitches to name a few. There are 10 main floss color options and 6 different roller heads (three different stitches on each).

So, do you think the Sew Easy will make you add more stitches to your projects and make it easier?

    I am not sure… I like the idea and I like the stitched look… I really like their floss color combos. Maybe!

    Wow! Can’t wait to get my hands on the Sew Easy. I bought a small craft sewing machine but have never used it because I could not thread it!

    I love stitching on paper, but what I do is use images, which is also called paper embroidery. Wish there was a maching that would prick a pattern from your computer or a scanned picture, LOL

    Wow, I do like this idea. I would probably just use the paper piecing on my cardstock and not use the floss (take too long). Of course I can see where someone who does like stitching could use it to format capital letters on cardstock (maybe lowercase) and then use the floss to stitch them. Tks for sharing the new tools coming up.

    If it’s as easy to do as it sounds, I think I would love using it.

    this definitely looks useful. i have the little janome but don’t usually bother with it for just one card. this would be so much easier and it looks very versatile. hope the price is reasonable so i can get at least 3 of the heads right away.

    I definitely want to get this…it will take a little longer to stitch this way, but at least I won’t have to take out my sewing machine each time- my desk is too little to keep it on there all the time!

    Looks like it would be easy to use. My sewing machine is out all the time, so I don’t know if I would buy these or not.

    It looks like it simplifies paper piercing, but I seriously doubt that I’d use it a whole lot. I only do piercing occasionally.

    I love stitching on paper and I like the idea of the We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy because it is so portable! That would be it’s main appeal for me.

    If this is even remotely as well made as my Crop-a-Diles (yes, I have TWO), I will quickly be a big fan!!!

    I think on the whole I’d still use my sewing machine for stitching- I can adjust the hole length and don’t have to go back and handsew. When I do it by hand it is usually along a specific image so this wouldn’t really help much for me. But I can see how it would be so much better than using a template.

    I do have and use a sewing machine, but know many who don’t, so this would be really useful for them. But might be worth getting anyway for those times I want to add stitches when I’m crafting away from home.

    Thank you so much for this video. I was searching for one, to no avail….should’ve known you would make it happen!! I’ve been intrigued by this since I first heard of it. This will probably make it to my craftroom.

    Wow I have been waiting for this tool my whole life (well actually since I started cardmaking a year ago). I love how stitching finishes the card so nicely but I don’t own a sewing machine. I didn’t want to invest in one if I’d only use it for my cardmarking so this is the perfect solution! I am so excited and can’t wait for this to release.

    I bought this on HSN Craft days last week and have used it. It’s super easy to use if you press down on the rubber mat so the needle points go through. I love the finished look and so think this is great for different stitches I don’t get on my machine.

    definitely must have this tool. since I love sewing and scrapbooking crafts it only makes sense to combine the two. Thanks for the chance to win.

    DON’T BUY IT. I love paper embroidery but the heads of my Sew Easy wobbles and is hard to keep firm, straight and piercing. Just use a paper piercing tool (awl) for your own designs and save a ton.
