A case of the wants…its always the wants…

I just love The Haby Goddess. Not only am I taking online lessons through Sew School  but I also wish I had a load of money to spend in the Store. Just check this wonderful stuff out!

The seam allowance guide. It magnetises to your scissors so that you can introduce a seam allowance as you cut your patterns out, rather than tracing one out beforehand. This is the product I want most since I bought Mundial scissors the other day. Hurry up pay day! 😛

This Turn-it-all will save me frustration trying to use chopsticks to turn little straps.

Poke-A-Dots look like a great alternative to thimbles, which I have never used because they are plain uncomfortable.

And this Ultimate Embroidery Kit looks great. I have never embroidered and really want to learn how. Spotlight was devoid of any ‘starter kits’ that weren’t actually expensive basic kits for kids, so when I found this I was very excited.

Since I am well stocked on the necessary stuff at the moment, this lot is going to have to wait a little while 😦 At lease I have plenty to keep me amused in the meantime including this:

Australia Post sent me a Mother’s Day catalogue, and this was only $25! The cheapest online source for this book was at least $37 so I have been putting it off for ages. Very excited to take a look tonight, I’ll post a review soon 🙂

  1. I have the turn-it-all tubes and they are indeed amazing. I also have tried the Sublime Stitching patterns and love them. I go through phases of not being patient enough to embroider, but it’s usually a good TV-watching activity.

    Now I think I want the seam allowance guide. I have never seen anything like that — it would enable me to actually sew Burda Magazine patterns! I always give up on the measuring seam allowance part.

  2. all you need to play with embroidery is a couple of hanks of thread(I use a lot of threads intended for weaving as theyre much cheaper), a scrap of fabric(an old linen shirt would be fab) and a needle(it doesn’t have to be an embroidery needle as such) – you dont even need a hoop. you can play for less than a pound, it doesn’t have to be expensive. I hate the way specialist shops have made embroidery so exclusive and expensive – for thousands of years people used what they had to hand
