One of the key supplies that I use constantly in the creation of my amigurumi and soft sculptures is a ruler. It can’t just be some generic ruler. THIS ISN’T PLAY TIME THIS IS SERIOUS.
I’ve tried just about every measurement stick you can find. I have cloth measuring tapes by themselves, measuring tapes in cutesy winder things, I have yard sticks and generic rulers, I even had an etsy seller make me a custom Leather bracelet that was stamped with ruler markings! If Only I could find that!
But my favorite by far is an antique wooden ruler that I found at a flea market. It is 6 inches long, but unfolds to be a full 2 feet long. On one side it has inches and the other it has centimeters. It is a Carpenter’s ruler and it looks like the photo below. It is THE BEST. And you should find one too — or whatever floats your boat.
