in an effort to blog more often, i'm going to start blogging 5 of my favorite things in different categories each friday. i'd love it if you'd join me.
Here are 5 of my current favorite sewing items
1. Seam Ripper
When I would mess up before having a good seam ripper, that was the end of a project. Now, I just rip it out and start over. I've broken a cheap seam ripper before so it's definitely worth investing in a little bit nicer one.
Oh serger. Probably my favorite purchase of all time. Completely worth it and has totally opened up the world of sewing with knits for me. Yes, you can do it on your regular machine, but I love love how quick it is and professional looking garments turn out.
3. Fiskars Rotary Cutting Set
These 3 things are the only reason my camera cases get made. It makes cutting a bunch a fabric such a quick task.
4. Scissor Sharpener
Sarah turned me on to these. I find that my scissors get dull pretty quick when I've been cutting a bunch of flannel for cases. Sharp scissors are a must, especially for cutting out knits.
I hate to iron. None of our clothes that we wear on a regular basis get ironed, but ironing is a must when sewing. Sometimes I try to skip this step and I almost always regret it.
