Snail Mail & Prep Work

Tuesday, January 5, 2010

While waiting patiently on my package of goodies to arrive from Amazon, I thought I would do a little prep work for my upcoming crafts. Here is a list of items I have at the ready:

sewing machine
paper for pattern
self-healing cutting mat

Tip: Always cut thread at an angle. It makes threading a needle so simple!
Eco Tip: Instead of buying paper for patterns, use what you have on hand. I use old folders and cereal boxes. The heavier weight improves the life of my patterns and I love anything that helps me recycle.

  1. Never knew about cutting thread with an angle - and my mother is a private seamstress. Simple, easily remembered and applied - thanks!
