Acrylic Templates for Patchwork

Acrylic Templates for Patchwork

Acrylic Templates for Patchwork

We supply a wide range of acrylic templates for patchwork. This popular medium allows strong, accurate templates which are thick enough to work with rotary cutters ensuring that the rotary cutter blade does not cut into the template. At the same time the thickness helps to guide the rotary cutter accurately. If the templates were not thick enough then the blade could dig in or cut the template meaning that they were no longer accurate and at the same time increasing the risk of the blade slipping.

The picture shows an acrylic patchwork template from Marti Michell and a rotary cutter. Marti Michell templates have double blunt corners making alignment of patchwork pieces easier and meaning that there is less 'weight' at the seams making pressing easier and piecing more accurate.

You can find all of our Acrylic Templates under our Patchwork Notions section. This area is is split into different sections depending upon the different type of patchwork shape that you are trying to create.

So there are sections for Hexagons, Circles, Triangles and Squares for example.

The big of advantage of acrylic is that you can see through the plastic but it is sturdy and can be accurately cut with laser technology.
Acrylic Patchwork Rulers

Acrylic Patchwork Rulers

As well as specific acrylic templates then we also sell acrylic patchwork rulers. Unlike many of the templates which are used to cut out specific shapes the rulers are designed to first square up and measure your fabric. Our best selling ruler brands are Omnigrid and Omnigrip from Prym Dritz. These feature accurate markings and with Omnigrip you get a nonslip coating to make the rotary cutting easier and more accurate with less slipage.

In the photo you can see a 2 1/2" strip of fabric being cut with a Omnigrip ruler and Olfa rotary cutter.

You can find all our patchwork rulers here.
