Great organization tool
Do you like to organize things? I do, especially my fabric pieces when I am putting together a block with lots of parts. I recently saw these wonderful boxes on Teresa's FabricTherapy blog (http://fabrictherapy.blogspot.com/ ) and had to go out that day to Michaels and see if we had them here. We did, and they were 40% off!
Even a box for the paper foundation pieces - got to love it!
Speaking of paper piecing, here is a little tip on how I piece these tiny little triangles needed for the snail trail block, which measures 3 1/2 inches unfinished and has 20 pieces.
I use an Add-an-Eighth ruler, meaning the seams are only 1/8 inch and that can shift when you go to sew it. I just use a piece of scotch tape to hold the fabric in place - but do not sew through the tape. The tape can be used over and over and works great.
Thanks for stopping by,
