    I'm not sure what this sewing tool is for, but I use it to score the lines on the paper before I start paper piecing. Makes it easier to remove the paper.

    That a tool that was used for garment sewing. You would transfer the markings from the pattern to the fabric . You would run the tracing wheel over the pattern , there was special tracing paper you would insert between the pattern on the fabric.
    It was great for darts!
    Nice use to help remove paper from the PP project.

    It's a tracing wheel used to mark seams, darts, in clothing sewing. It's used with a tracing paper (like carbon paper).
