Two years ago, I suggested 5 things to pick up for your sewing while shopping for school supplies. This year, I have two more things to add to that list.
1. Zipper Pencil Pouches
A month after the Back To School sale signs came down last year, I was cursing my shortsightedness in not buying zipper pouches for notion and finding storage. Because do you know how many zipper pouches stores sell during the rest of the year? And how much do they charge? The answer: Not Many and Way Too Much.
These pouches are working way better for my rivets and snap storage than my collection of ziplock baggies and torn bubble-wrap envelopes. The best part? These brightly colored beauties are 97 cents a piece. I bought ten, and I regret not buying 10 more…. or 20… I don’t know.
2. Elmer’s Glue
I recently learned about the “glue basting” quilt seams. I am told that it is easy and more accurate than pins and I can’t wait to try it out on Gianna’s quilt. See Christy’s video tutorial for the details.
… and while you are already shopping, don’t forget the other 5 items from the original list….
3. Chalkboard Chalk
5. Binder Clips
6. FriXion Pens
7. Glue Sticks
Have you been school supply shopping? And did you pick some things up for yourself as well?
