Welcome to Day 12 of our 12 Days Of Christmas celebration!
[Giveaway Ended - Congrats to Kat B!]
Sewing is definitely a fun and rewarding skill, but sometimes there are parts of the process that can just frustrate me beyond belief! I absolutely love it when I come across a product/tip/or trick that solves some of these frustrations… Fraying fabric, tiny hems, tangled bobbins, and stepping on lost pins in the carpet were some of my top dilemas to solve early on and now I can’t imagine my sewing journey without these fun finds!
In the past we've given away a few of my favorite supplies, but this year after getting tons of suggestions from the other Pixie Faire designers, I've created the ultimate list of "Can't Live Without" supplies! Today we are giving away … 12 of our favorite sewing supplies to one lucky winner! All items are brand new and together are valued at over $175!
Grabbit – A magnetic pin cushion. This is just so fun to swipe over the floor or table top and quickly pick up all the pins at once! - Cinnamon LJC
Wonder Tape – double sided transparent, perfect for tiny folds, hems, and applying velcro! Judy of Sofie Clareese love this for shoe making!
Gingher 4" Shears – Tiny sharp scissors, perfect for trimming threads and getting in tiny curves and corners! - Karen of Forever 18 Inches Can't live without these, I have several pairs! - Cinnamon LJC
Bobbin Saver – Perfect for keeping bobbins organized! - Cinnamon LJC
Petite Press - it's small which is perfect for getting into small spaces and designed to keep your hands away from the heat plate! - Ellen of The Doll Loft
The Purple Thang - Purple Thang! Can't live without it! Best turning tool ever! It's the perfect turner. Has just a bit of a curve, a pointy end and a blunt end. Works great! And it's purple! My favorite color! - Chris of Love U bunches. Also for holding things near the presser foot while sewing - Genine of Genniewren Designs
Frixion Eraseable Pens - They are awesome! You can make a dark, precise mark on a light-colored fabric, and it will iron out quickly and easily with heat from an iron. I almost never use chalk or other marking tools now. - Marilyn of QTπ Doll Clothing, Karen Forever 18 Inches, and Liese Doll Tag Clothing
2-n-1 Tailor Board Clapper - I also love my tailor board for pressing in tight places! Jane of Sweat Pea Fashions
2 Piece Bodkin Set - Great for turning! Jeri of Peppermintsticks. I use this for threading elastic. It's so much better than those silly plastic threader things they give you in the packs of elastic - Genine of Genniewren Designs
Clover Ergonomic Crochet Hook Set - One thing I love is a set of crochet hooks with ergonomic handles. Great for old hands like mine. I find them much more comfortable to use. This set from Clover has a very smooth throat to make crocheting easier and a rounded, but not too round, hook to glide easily into stitches without splitting the yarn - Jane of Sweat Pea Fashions
- Clover Stitch Markers - Gotta have these! Vital to keeping track of where you are on some projects. Jane Sweet Pea Fashions
- Precision Hemostat Forcep - The're really like tiny pliers and indispensable when turning things right side out! Bonnie of Crabapples and Karen of F18
