I recently found these great pots at Target in their home decorating section. They're RED too!! Woohoo! I love RED! They are the perfect size and with it's big opening everything is easy to access. Love it! I bought two for me and one for a friend. You might also notice the scissor pull that's made out of fimo clay. It's a really cute miniature quilt block. It's amazing what talented fimo artists can make with clay.
I love this seam ripper. I bought it a few years ago but, I can't seem to locate the same one online. You can buy a Fons and Porter version here or at your local JoAnn's. It works really nicely in cutting your chained pieces of fabric. I use this tool quite often and I'd have to buy another one if it broke or I lost it somewhere.
Now this is a really really really handy cool tool. It presses open your seams when you're paper piecing or just need to do a quickie press. The wooden circle rolls across your seams and it's got a really cute handmade handle. I bought it from a gentleman at the HMQS show. He also makes matching seam rippers. I'll have to buy one of the seam rippers at the next HMQS show that's coming in May, I think! I have his phone number if any of you are interested. I don't think he has a website or anything like that. Just let me know and I'll email it to you.
This is one of my favorite and most used scrapbooking tools.
It's a Scotch ATG 700 Tape Gun. The tape rolls come with 36 yards of 1/2" double-sided adhesive transfer tape. When I first saw this tape gun I was so excited as I added up the amount of "Tombo" tape guns I would have to use to add up to the 36 yards of tape used in just one roll of tape.
In the scrapbook store the gun alone cost $70 but I knew that I could find it cheaper on the internet and sure enough I got it for $35.95. The tape rolls were $11 each at the scrapbook store and I got a case of 12 rolls for $46.44 that's just $3.87 a roll and if you divide that number by 36 yards, that's just over .10 cents a yard. Hard to believe the savings. It's been a great investment.
I bought it from A-PAK Manufacturing Inc. about a year and a half ago. I just checked and it's gone up to $41.60 for the tape gun. That's not too bad of an increase over time.
