These are the sewing tools that I use most often. With so many sewing tools out there, here’s some help picking the best.
Happy Friday, my lovelies! Today I’m sharing five of my favorite sewing tools and supplies — with five more favorite sewing tools here! Some of these may be familiar to you, but I’m hoping you’ll discover some new favorites as well.
I pinned the binding on my first few quilts, and it was pretty much a stab-fest. I bled on my nephew’s quilt because all the pins were facing in the direction that was best for sticking me under my thumbnails as I sewed on the binding. I’m pretty sure that’s a form of torture.
If you use a ruler and rotary cutter, I can’t recommend these little sandpaper dots more highly. You put them on the bottom of your cutting ruler and it keeps the ruler from sliding over your fabric.
I have a lot of scissors I love (and I’ll share another pair next week!), but today I want to gush about my micro-serrated scissors.
I’d like to pretend that I never make a mistake, so I never have to use a seam ripper. HA! I rip all the time, as does every other sewer I know. Ripping isn’t that difficult, but it leaves threads everywhere.
To say that I love my magnetic pin cushion is an understatement. My aunt gave me hers when I first started sewing and I can’t imagine sewing without it.
Now that I’ve shared five, tell me — what are your go-to sewing tools?
