Hubby and I recently spent some time shopping at our favorite closeout stores. There is a small chain of them here in Michigan and you never know what you will find there.
At one, I found some of this:
It is for piecing together scrap batting into useable sizes. With my long arm, I end up with TONS of scraps. I usually zig zag the pieces together but this is much faster. I have use it once so far and it was very easy. It runs over $5 each at JoAnn’s but I got 9 rolls for 80 cents each. I would never buy and use this at full price, I am way too cheap. But at this price, I couldn’t leave it.
I also picked up these badge reels. They are so handy for thread snips!
I also found this. I haven’t made many bags, I prefer to sew quilts. but I was intrigued by this product. I might use if for making more Pixie baskets.
Not a bad little haul! have you found any wonderful bargains in unexpected places?
