    The best tool for me lately is a pair of shoes! I use them as pattern weights when i cut out patterns – they hold the pattern down, save tons of time pinning, and they’re free! (well, free as pattern weights!)

    If I were stranded on a desert island the tool I would want to have are a pair of shears! You can do anything with a good cutting tool, even carve out a needle and make some thread!

    surprisingly my childs play mat it helps me when i need to cut out patterns on fabric as its a flatter surface than the carpet yet it holds it in place better than a smooth table or wood floor :o)

    Recently I have bought a sewing gauge, which I just love. Plus, who knew you could get little gadgets that help you make perfect bias binding !

    A sewing room all to my own would be the best tool.

    The best tool that I have for sewing are the bins that I use to organize my fabric and supplies. If I don’t put something back where it belongs, I spend my precious sewing time trying to find it and it makes me frustrated. Also, I love my seam ripper, but who doesn’t?

    I get a lot of my tools at Albert Zolls, and it’s amazing because I usually get them when I’m trying to reach their credit limit because I have no cash…but they are almost all invaluable!

    An iron makes all the difference in the world. Fortunately, I LOVE to iron!

    The best tool for my sewing projects is space. If I have enough space to spread out the pattern/fabric/supplies, it makes a huge difference.
