These are a few of my favorite things...
I've always used bees wax when I'm hand sewing. I've always had the bigger size disc, but I just found this package of 5 little minis!! They are perfect to keep with different hand sewing projects.
Bees wax coats the thread so it doesn't knot up, twist or fray. I absolutely love it for sewing my hexagon projects.
Look how tiny each one. I have a bobbin in the center to compare the size. I found them in the quilting section at Joann fabrics for $3.99.
Thread Cutter Pendant
I also use a thread cutter when I'm hand sewing and this one from Clover is my favorite!!
It's a bronze metal pendant.
and has a hole to add your own chain to hang it around your neck like a necklace.
When you have it as a necklace, you will never lose your scissors. This is especially great when hand sewing in the car or on a plane. This was in the embroidery section at Joann's...$7.99, but use a 50% coupon.
It looks like jewelry!!
Just pass the thread over any of the openings and it cuts it beautifully. The sharp blade is totally encased in the metal, so you will never cut yourself.
Seam Fix...seam ripper and fixer
This is a great seam ripper, but to remove all those loose threads...
The cap of the seam ripper is a rubber cleaner. Just run this rubber pen over the seam and it will pull out all the little threads that you have left behind from the seam ripper. It's like magic!!
Handy Storage Box...
Back to the box. These little chocolates come in a cute metal box. I know some mints do too.
These boxes are perfect for a little sewing kit or a project holder.
Here's a little bobbin to show you the size of the box.
The box isn't a sewing "notion", but still a must have. It keeps things clean, organize and handy.
Hope you liked some of the items that I showed today. These are my own items and I wasn't paid by anyone to write this post...just wanted to share.
What are your sewing favorites or must haves?
