It's Hallie Larkin's fault.
Hallie wrote an article on her blog, "At the Sign of the Golden Scissors," about all the useful treasures to behold hidden away in the quilter's tools aisle. On yesterday's trip to JoAnn's, I was fully in search of the chalk pencils and the clear ruler:
|This was a little expensive, but just look how much chalk is in there.|
|nice wide ruler for cutting nice wide bias with the rotary cutter|
I also found bias tape makers, a tool I've been searching for for AGES. I am so freakin' tired of tending steam burns on my fingers from trying to fold and press my bias tapes at the same time. Anybody who's suffered this will know exactly what I mean, and the value of these little tools.
|Can't wait to use these!|
|Thread, you'll be a button soon...|
|iDye. Yes I do.|
I also nabbed my lavender satin-stuff fabric for the 1912 gown, but I will share that with you later. :-)
