HELPFUL TOOLS

hello friends, today I want to talk about two out of so many of my favorites tools to work in my projects.

There is something needed and that is important to quilters, designers, cloth makers and all type of crafters that we can not denied: a great washable marker or washable pen.

I personally have used a couple of them that can be expensive and cheap, but there is on in special that I enjoy using so much and that I have bought for my mother's projects, the washable marker from rose art brand.  You usually can find it at the Office Depot, Walmart, target, and even better at Amazon that ships almost everywhere you need it.
The price is great, around $4.00 bucks for the whole box of 10 washable markers, so you have fun that last for a long time.

Why do I recommend it?

  1. It has a great price
  2. I have use it in all kind of different fabrics like cottons, knits, challis, etc. and I can honestly tell you that I have never had a spot left when I wash my fabric.

So I can tell you that you will have plenty of fun with not regrets. Below it is a picture of it, so you can have an idea.

This second tool that is very helpful and by the picture you can see why, is my lint roller.  I am kind of a clean freak, my friends can tell about it, I am not exaggerating about this subject, so when I am sewing if there's something that bothers me is having threads all over me or around my work place, so  along came my favorite lint roller that work wonders for me.  I have one in my work area and also in my car because there is nothing worse than black clothes with some sort of white lints around.  The brand I use is Scott brite and it is very cheap as well, I am very sure that all of you have one around.

This is an example that I was not kidding when I said that I used in all kinds of fabrics; here I was working in my recent pattern McCall 7162 and after I washed my fabric, there was not marker left.
You can go to Walmart or Jo Ann's and you will find some washable fabric markers that I have used but it won't last that much compare to this one, also I have hear so feedback from quilters hating it.  This I know that won't compromise your projects.

I hope you found these tips helpful, if you really like my blog, I invite you to subscribe with your email so you won't miss any of my post. If you feel like pin it, go ahead it makes me happy.

May God bless you and have a great day!

The Jessica Dress

Pattern by Mimi G
Dear friends, here I am today with a cute dress and new favorite pattern from Mimi G Style.  A few months ago she gave this pattern for free and I jumped in and got mine, It was a downloadable file, you can print it at home or at a store.  It runs by letter sizes like S, M, L etc.  I cut the size M and even thou the pattern call for only 0.3 mm I had to sew a lot more than that to fit me.  I love this pattern, I am ready to make it much more of what I thought at the beginning, it is easy, simple and elegant; you can make the skirt in many different lengths of  your preference and me personally, I feel the dress can be used all year, spring, summer and fall.  You can add a simple Torero or a long sleeve shirt under the dress and you will be warm if needed.  Here is the mine!

Cocktail Dress

Hello my dear friends, here I am again with a cute pattern but even better yet, exquisite fabric that I have been looking for at least a year. Ever since I saw the pattern from McCall 6696 I knew that I wanted to make it just like the one in the cover but I could not find the fabric to make it just like that. One day in a trip to Atlanta, My husband let me down at Joann's Store to see what was new and there I found my fabric and wait! ...... in 70% discount, from $29 dollars I paid $9 dollar per yard.  So believe me, I was really happy that day.  I have treated this dress with so much care and I have enjoyed every part of making it.

Pattern Review: I love it and can not wait to make it again but probably with different features. I did not make any changes to the pattern and I did sew the size 14 which it has all my measurements.
I hope this dress can motivate some of you to make it and hopef…
