• Quickly measure 1cm, 1.5cm, 2cm, 3cm and 4cm using the shorter edges. Perfect for when you're pressing up hems, adding seam allowance or measuring seams or other small bits. • Make markings such as buttonholes, darts, pleats, tucks etc. • Find the right seam guide lines on your machine - choose from 0.5, 2, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5 cm seam allowance. Just drop your needle in one of the holes to see which line you need to follow. • Draw parallel lines when you need to lengthen or shorten your pattern. Or use the dots to mark buttonholes at a right angle by lining up the dots with the edge of your project.
