Day 5: 🔥HOT HOT HOT🔥
The top is my current iron station. The bottom is ironing equipment on my wish list

I have lots of measuring boards, rulers, tapes, etc. But my newest tool is the measuring gauge. FASHION BEHIND THE SEAMS introduced me this tool and I love it.
Day 8: PIN IT
I think we all have the yellow quilters pins…lol On my next notion buy, I will look for the glass head pins. Some to more experienced seamstress I follow have mention them several times.

All of my creating happens on the top two machines. The Dream Machine at the bottom is on my wish list. From the first time I saw it, it was love at first sight….

I have two because when I completed the garment, it looked nothing like the pattern and I followed the directions word for word…lol

Not a huge collection but valuable to my craft.
Day 13: CHALK IT UP
This was suggested to my by the sales associate in @hancockfabrics. I love it
