16.2 Periodic Table of Sewing by Scientific Seamstress

June 9, 2011

I totally failed to mention this wonderful periodic table of sewing in my periodic table episode a couple of days ago.

Carla of the the Scientific Seamstress fame (must be something weird about people with the names rhyming with ‘arla’?) has put together the periodic table of sewing elements.

Keeping the symbols of the elements the same, Carla has found some cute replacements for elements!

I particularly like Ne (neon) for Needle, and Sr (strontium) for Seam Ripper, and Mg (magnesium) for Magnetic Closure.

Check out her science/sewing lab on this post where there’s a link to a larger printable version of the image!


  1. Love it!

  2. It is great, isn’t it? I have a copy hung up in my sewing room. 🙂

    Take care,

  3. Thank you so much!! The periodic table defied me. I was never able to fully learn it, even though my 60 something Mom, learned more than I did while trying to help me. Now I am 60 something and this is just the “cat’s meow” as they used to say. Thank you for your creativity and for sharing. I Love It!!!!
