Find out what a great little gadget this is for making your own plait/cable designs.
What is a ‘Multi-Plait tool’?
The ‘Multi-Plait tool’ is Angela’s unique plastic template which creates many varied types of designs and comes complete with easy instructions … so it is really a ‘workshop in bag.’
Anyone using it can swiftly draft different kinds of twisted or plaited (braided) designs which can be square, circular or linear for blocks or borders as required. Designs drafted on ‘greaseproof’ or tracing paper can easily be stitched through or transferred to fabric for use as appliqué.
The design size and style can be chosen to suit any project, and the tool creates corners correctly too. No maths or artistic expertise necessary for fast, brilliant results.
Suitable for hand or machine quilting, bias or flat appliqué, trapunto or even stencilling.
