February 2021’s “That’s Sew Cool!” is short and sweet… like a little pack of candy hearts, but BETTER.
3 Valentines I Bought For Myself
- A multicolored pack of YKK 14″ Nylon Zippers: you never know when you might need a zipper for a little pouch or pillow. I love how many colors are in this pack and it is such a good deal (under $20).
- My FIRST custom clothing labels from Wunderlabel: This was overdue. If you are making clothing for yourself and want custom labels in them I say GO FOR IT! I wanted my labels to be very simple. Pink was a requirement. I decided to get pink for the background and sparkly red for the words. I am so happy with them and can’t wait to add one in my next dress. For just under $30 you get 50 labels.
- Another pair of Kai Scissors: These are serrated scissors. I would describe them as micro-serrated. It is just enough to provide extra grip on delicate fabrics such as silk. I specifically bought them for cutting silk and silky-type fabric. After grabbing a couple silk scraps and comparing the cut of these scissors verses my knife-edge Ginghers (which I really like), let me tell you, they cut silk perfectly straight. I am definitely making a scissor comparison video soon so you can see them in action. These are under $20 and, I’ll prematurely say, worth it.
It’s is nice to get a little treat for yourself sometimes, even if the treat is somewhat practical. Have I told you guys that I am Mrs. Frugal? That’s why I wait years before finally getting labels or I set a pair of scissors in my Amazon cart and *think about it* for a few days. Here is my husband always telling me to TREAT YO SELF!
Happy Sewing! – Paige
