These Hemline tracing wheels are a handy tool to have when you are transferring sewing patterns onto fabric. They are often used with carbon paper or Swedish tracing paper to trace the outlines. If you are using tracing paper without carbon paper, you will need to use the tool with a protective material such as a mat underneath the fabric. This tracing wheel comes with an elegant floral patterned handle.

Smooth edge - This tracing wheel is made to be used with carbon paper to transfer markings of patterns onto fabric or paper without damaging the material. Use a smooth edge blade for easy and quick tracing.
Serrated edge - This tracing wheel can be used with or without carbon paper. Tracing with the serrated edge will leave tiny holes in the material you are marking, which you can then join together to make lines. You must use a mat or a protective material underneath your fabric to prevent any damage to your table. We recommend using Swedish tracing paper for an accurate and precise drawing.
