Just when I thought my metal crafting ruler, trusty transparent quilter’s ruler, and tape measure were enough, I was sent some peel-off paper rulers called Inchie Ruler Tape by C&T Publishing. Inspired by Charlotte Warr Andersen’s book “One Line at a Time”, this tape is touted as “easy, accurate guides for quilting, crafting, painting and more”.
One package contains 80 sheets of ruler tape. That is plenty to last through many projects, especially since they are re-positionable. Peel an entire column (11 inches), or cut what you need; it’s easy to take off the backing.
Seriously, Inchie Tape couldn’t have come at a better time. I tested it as a guide on my t-shirt quilt project. No need to mark masking tape by hand! I really like how flexible it is, how it stays adhered to fabric, yet doesn’t leave a residue.
- Ten 8″ x 11″ sheets with 8 stickers each… you do the math. Generous amount!
- Re-positionable adhesive has just enough tack to use over and over on fabric.
- Flexible with fabric.
- 1/4″ guidelines are helpful. Easy to cut with backing.
- Might damage paper surfaces, so test first or cut with backing and leave backing in place.
Inchie Ruler Tape can be found online at the C&T Publishing website for $10.95 plus shipping and handling. Check on availability at your local fabric store.
