Folding Templates

My friend pinned these folding templates by Carla (AKA The Scientific Seamstress) recently and I thought it was such a great idea that I had to share it. They would make folding and pressing fabric more precise and so much faster!

If you click here, you can find the link to download the free templates at Carla’s blog, which include both straight and curved guides. So handy, right?

I pretty much eye-ball everything when I’m pressing, so I could really use something like this. How about you?


  1. Really neat! :-)

  2. I really need this! Thank you so much for posting about it :)

  3. I have a folding template from a pattern by Carla that I love. I need to go get the curved one now. Thanks!

  4. Love it … great idea! I’m off to download that now. Thanks for the link.

  5. I use these often. They are so helpful. One word of caution…I laminated them to make them last longer, but you can melt the plastic with your iron. :)

  6. Cool idea! Also much more affordable than the metal one I found online that I couldn’t buy outside the US (and was rather too much hassle for now to get!)

  7. I am a HUGE fan of Carla’s and LOVE the templates. Really helpful, I notice a difference when I eyeball it.

  8. This is awesome! Thanks so much for sharing the link!

  9. Just a quick note to let you know that a link to this post will be placed on CraftCrave today [07 Oct 09:00pm GMT]. Thanks, Maria

  10. I totally eyeball it! This is a great little tool! Thanks for sharing it!
