Tracing Wheel (Dia. 1)
N.B. - A double wheel costs more and is not nearly so good, as they are made to mark both the lines of stitching and the width for the turning; but as all seams do not require the same width of turning to be left on them, and the width of turning also varies with the material, it is better to use a single wheel and to leave the necessary turning.
Push Pins (Dia. 2)
The push pins have needle points, and do not leave a mark on the material. If ordinary pins are used the pattern is frequently "puckered" on the lining or material, and cannot be outlined so accurately.
These push pins are sold in boxes of one dozen for 5d. a box.
Pinking Iron, Mallet, Lead (Dia. 3)
The pinking irons cost from about 9d. each, according to the size of the scallop. The lead is sold by weight fa small piece is sufficient). The mallet should be made of boxwood, or it will soon split; it costs about 2s. or 2s. 6d.
