We needed a Lance French Curve Ruler for pattern drafting for a sewing project. (A project for a project!) If you've ever seen one of these rulers then you know they are a silly shape so we decided to run with that and create an intentionally funny "helping hand." Still silly, but majorly helpful and people will still giggle when they ask you what you use that ruler for.
The final design marries whimsy and practically. I laser cut these vectors out of 1/8" clear transparent acrylic. I also flipped the design so the text etches backwards so you get a cleaner look. You could also fill in the etched text with acrylic paint.
