Best sewing tools
I am back here with a post about a few of my best sewing tools that I have been loving recently. I have also recorded a vlog on YouTube showing you all of them and giving you a bit of a description and what I usually use them for. Take a look and find links to all of them below.
Gadgets mentioned on the vlog:
✂Pattern weights: instead of using pins, sometimes, mainly when using a rotary cutter to cut the fabric, the best option is to use pattern weights to keep fabric and pattern pieces in place. https://bit.ly/2Bf0KNy
✂’Wonder’ clips: these are just fantastic! Although mine are not the official brand, I found them really cheap online. https://amzn.to/2BcB4B9
✂Magnetic pin holder: this is just the best. Instead of having your pins lying around, I use my magnetic pin holder to keep them in place and pick them up easily afterwards. https://bit.ly/2Bdi4mb
✂Simflex sewing gauge: perfect to mark buttonholes! https://amzn.to/2nEpDIY
✂Thread snip: if your machine doesn’t come with an automatic thread cutter, these are great. Also to tream tiny threads. https://bit.ly/2w6YYZ7
✂Finger guards: wow, these are just perfect! I use them for hemming so as not to burn my fingers away 🙂 https://amzn.to/2nDQ55n
More gadgets mentioned on the blog:
✂Iron pressing cloth: this has been another life savior. Mainly when applying interfacing to a garment, I use my pressing cloth to protect both the iron and the fabric. https://bit.ly/2vKsEvP
✂Teflon iron plate: if your iron doesn’t behave properly, get one of these iron plates to protect your lovely iron! https://amzn.to/2KPmAH7
✂Pressing tools: great for sleeves, armholes… https://bit.ly/2KTJc9u
✂Sharpener: I use this one almost every week to make sure my scissors are as sharp as needed. https://amzn.to/2vMAMvL
✂Bee wax: have never used it yet, but I have read great reviews about how it helps when threading needles. https://amzn.to/2MMDMii
✂Sticky sewing tape: apparently good for sewing zips so that they stay in place. https://bit.ly/2vKufBV
✂Tutorial on sewing sticky tape: https://bit.ly/2Oxbd8M
