This week I’m sharing with you guys a few things that I love. Wednesday I did a post about scrapbooking today, it’s about sewing… and like I said before, these are just things I love, I didn’t receive any compensation to write about any of them.
Okay, call me biased, but I LOVE Moda fabrics and the Moda Bake Shop blog. I love to see all of the great projects that their designers come up with for using pre-cuts. I am always amazed by all of the creativity of the designers on that blog.
|There are a whole lot of Fat Quarters on that bookshelf!
Okay, I LOVE to sew with Fat Quarters! I love to sew with them so much I could write a book about it (except someone else already did). I love to think up projects that can be made with those rectangles. They are easy to store and inexpensive, and I like being able to get a little bit of each print of lots of different fabrics. Lots of shops sell variety packs of Fat Quarters now, which I love.
Pinking Rotary Cutter Blade
I have pinking shears but I can never seem to get them to cut straight. I’d much rather use the pinking blade for my rotary cutter. You can use it with your ruler to make sure your cut is straight.
Speaking of rotary tools… Ever since I sliced off the tip of my finger last year
, I’ve been using a cut glove ALL THE TIME! Let me tell you IT HURT! and I will admit to being mildly traumatized by the event. Just wear one on the hand that holds your ruler… trust me.
Gingher 4″ Embroidery scissors
I love these, they are SHARP and stay that way. They are perfect for cutting out intricate designs for applique. The sharp tips really help to give you a crisp cut. They are also the perfect size if I ever take my sewing with me.
Okay it goes without saying that a sewers favorite item is fabric…. but here are a few that I love.
Okay call me crazy or a stalker or whatever you will… but I love Heather Bailey fabric. I’ve got quite a collection of all 3 of her fabric lines. I know it sounds a bit cheesy but when I discovered her fabric and made this dress
it really got me wanting to sew again. I had been scrapbooking more back then, but something about that fabric got my creative juices flowing.
When I saw this image on Heather Ross’ blog
about her new fabric coming up, I got so excited! Living in Kentucky, horses are kinda a big deal, and I can’t wait until this fabric comes out and I get my hands on it. I just discovered Heather R’s fabric a year ago and am kicking myself that I never got any of the one with the VW buses on it!
I also really love…
Sandi Henderson’s meadowsweet collections… especially the prints with the strawberries (so cute)…
The Sis Boom collections from Jennifer Paganelli... I can’t wait to get my hands on some of her new fabrics… did you see she’s got laminates with it? I totally love it, so preppy chic!
and of course….
This is her new line, which I haven’t bought yet, but is next on my wish list.
Can you believe I still have some of her very first Midwest Modern line? I’m afraid to cut it, I think it might cry – can fabric cry? *wink*
Okay so your turn now, so spill… what’s your favorite sewing item right now???
