MY FRENCH CURVES

Wouldn't want to do without them!  They really come in handy when altering patterns.  You can purchase from online tailoring sources, but I've also purchased at Hobby Lobby.  They come in all shapes and sizes...

    Hi Faye! It is so nice to have bells and whistles that we use and make our hobby easier. However, I see someone else thinks that it is important to have a wish list or a list to keep you on track for what you need next. Great idea! & Happy Thanksgiving!!!

  2. As silly as it sounds, my favourite sewing tool is the magnetic pin holders I have. I use a different colour for each kind of pin. They even serve as pattern weights when needed!

  4. I find the see-through kind of french curves to be the most helpful.
