What I use

So many of you contact me to ask about what my favorite products to use are that I figured I'd share the info with everyone. So, I've created this page to keep an ongoing list of sewing/quilting supplies I either use myself or have used and would recommend.

If you are still wondering about something else feel free to contact me.

Rotary Cutter + Mat

The two rotary cutters I currently use are:

If you are starting off in the world of craft sewing or quilting here are the rulers I recommend you start off with.  If you are like me you will eventually build a ruler collection but these are the sizes I highly recommend for beginners. 

6.5" x 24" clear ruler- My go to ruler for every project!  The length of this ruler allows you to cut long strips across the width of the fabric.  This is a task you will surely use in every single quilt you make. Cut strips for patchwork, borders, binding, bias binding, making your own piping, ruffles, etc.

6.5" x 6.5" clear ruler- This ruler size is just perfect for any kind of patchwork piecing or small craft project. You can cut small patchwork units, trim up half square triangles (HSTs), flying geese, etc. I use it mostly in small craft projects like cosmetic bags, tote bags, making pockets for things and child size craft projects. 

Fabric Marking Pens
These are the fabric pens you may have seen me use in some of my video tutorials. When you hit the pen mark with a hot iron it disappears! My absolute favorite for marking fabrics. 

Binding Clips 
These are the best little clips for binding any project. But I especially like to use them for binding with bulky fabrics or many layers you can't pin through. They open wide and hold everything in place. A must-have in my book!
