What’s in your bag?
Thank you so much for your comments of support about the custom bag. They really took away any niggling doubts I had that I did the right thing.
As I haven’t got any sewing to show I thought I’d show you something different, the contents of my sewing bag. I like to keep in this little bag (it was first attempt at making a quilted bag) all the essential items I need whenever I’m sewing.
Here we go:
Plasters (or band aids for our friends over the pond) – for when needles or pins attack!!!
Light and dark tacking threads
Vanishing fabric marker pens
Sewing needles (and a safety pin)
Left-handed tape measure – yes they really do exist...
Flower head pins
Thimbles – and a little sticky-tape to help it say on my finger...
Sewing gauge/point turner
Hera marker – for making creases/marks on fabric
Compensation plates – when starting to sew through thick layers of fabric, these little bits of plastic slip under the machine foot to keep it level
What do you keep in your sewing bag?
Have a great week.
PS why not pop over to Handmade Monday to see what other fellow craft bloggers have been up to.
