Featured in the PR book!
I needed to mark up a 2 in. hem. I decided to measure a small yellow sticky-type note. It is perfectly 2 in. so I can measure with it, fold up the hem, pin and sew.

Great idea! I'm working on a skirt right now. Will try marking the hem this way. Thanks for the review!

Maybe its my eyes but the contrast between the light paper and dark fabric helped mark easily. I wrote 2" on the paper. One could trim one for 1-1/2" etc. Any card stock would work but the sticky note was right there in a moment of inspiration and was just right.
