2. I'm going to be honest, my tomato pin cushion is hidden in the back of a drawer. Call me judgmental, but tomatoes are for my sandwich, not my sewing room. With a quick search of Pinterest you can find some amazingly cute ideas for diy pin cushions. Check out my pin cushion Pinterest board for a start. Most cushions call for Fiber Fill, which is great, but for a sharper solution...fill your custom cushions with emery to sharpen your pins and needles. You can purchase it by the pound and vwalla, you've got a cute and sharp solution.
3. Earlier this year, I was getting very frustrated while using my scissors, every snip I'd take, there was a thread that would be missed. I noticed a notch in my scissors, someone had used them for something other than fabric and took a chunk out of the metal. I'm SUUURE it wasn't me, I never get lazy and forget to grab my paper scissors. *clears throat*. I was ready to toss them and get a new pair, but quality scissors are expensive. That's when I found this Scissors Sharpening Stone. My scissors are restored and this can be used with knives and other scissors for years to come. A very small investment, with a huge return!
4. One of the most important tools in your sewing room is your rotary cutter. You'll find yourself working way harder than necessary if you have a dull blade, and replacement blades can be pricey!! If you are like me, I have more than one size rotary cutter too. Instead of replacements, check out this handy Power Rotary Blade Sharpener. It is for use with 28m, 45mm, and 60mm blades! This is a great investment that will save you a lot down the line.
P.S. I would suggest watching YouTube tutorials on these products before using them, technique is everything.
