  2. Fabulous giveaway! Congrats on 100 followers!

    My favorite sewing tool is my rotary cutter. I don't understand how anybody made quilts before they were invented. : ) I cut with scissors as infrequently as possible!

  13. I would have to say my favorite sewing tool is my seam ripper, only because I am fairly new to sewing, and need to use it a lot :)

  14. Lost my last comment....

    My fave is the auto needle threader on my sewing machine...I have such a hard time threading my needles now. My next purchase will be the threader for hand needles...my eyes are just going...

  15. My favorite sewing tool is my iron. It just makes my work look so much nicer.

  16. I would have to say that my favorite sewing tool is my laptop! :o) It's always there to find a tutorial, or answer a question, or provide inspiration, or to make a big hole I fall into reading blog after blog after blog. :o)
    Other than that, I'd say my Clover mini-iron. It gets H-O-T, and makes great little seams.

  17. And now I'm a follower -- I was already following on Google Reader, but I know it's not quite the same. :o)

  18. Congrats on 100!!! My favorite notion has to be my thread snipper scissors. I got them for like $1 at hobby lobby, and now I have about 5 pairs because they are always the ones I reach for (even when my ginghers are right next to me!)

  19. My favorite sewing tool is the 1/4 inch foot or the walking foot my wonderful mother purchased for me.

  23. And as for my favorite tool--I have a new one. For Christmas my Mr. got me a lightweight (glass-filled nylon) pair of Gingher shears--apparently Gingher markets them as paper-cutting shears, but our quilt shop sells them. And they are PERFECT for keeping next to the sewing machine for quick thread-clipping and dog-ear-trimming.

    He did good, my Mr. *g*

  30. My favorite tool should be my seam ripper since I use it so much, but I'd say my ruler and rotary cutter because cutting is what I hate the most (besides basting...) and if I had to do it with scissors I'd want to hurt myself!

    ReplyDelete
  31. My favorite sewing tool is definitely my rotary cutter (and ruler!) - there is just something so satisfying about a lovely, quick, straight cut.
