I love a gadget and sometimes the simplest ones are the best!

It can be a bit cumbersome trying to measure, press and pin a hem or turn fabric accurately. Here is a handy and easy tool you can make to help you. Prepare a rectangle of cardboard and mark along the edge the turning you wish to make (or the most common ones you use).

I marked mine with 0.5 cm, 1 cm and 1.5 cm lines. You can check the depth of your turnings against it or use it to press the fabric against for accuracy.
