i've got some offbeat sewing tools in my arsenal (yes, that is a frog tape dispenser with a gun roll. i also have a blue plastic gun for said roll. don't you?) so i thought i might make a wee thing of sharing a weekly favorite with you. see that can of duck cassoulet up above? it was DELICIOUS, and most certainly aided in my recent love for adding ease. and now, it also holds all three hundred of my zig double tipped fabric markers. these were enabled by mommaballoona's stash of 50% off coupons, like ten years ago. they're still rocking. i'm a big fan off capping things tightly.
(no, i do not have three hundred, but it feels like it. the most i can find them in now is a pack of 25, for like 50 bucks. you can see where a coupon comes in handy.)
they've got a mean little pointy tip and a thick doofus tip, depending on your mood. i almost always open up the wrong end first and scowl at the thumb sized end. mostly, i do pointy rage work with these. see: stitching gone awry! see: oona gnash her teeth in the direction of seam ripper and go for the cheater's route instead!
EH! EET IZ VANISHED! with all the colors of the world at hand, it's soooo easy to mask a little drunken stitching. and these won't wash out, being fabric markers. i highly suggest searching your local crafty superchain the next time you've got a fancy coupon.
have i sufficiently ruined your image of me? what do you do to avoid the seam ripper?
