Very fun. I got some StazOn ink so I could stamp on my plastic card boxes. Yes, it’s a bit smudged. I need to practice stamping on slippery plastic. Someone asked me about where to get these plastic boxes. They are from Clearbags. They have paper, plastic boxes, and bags of all sizes. I’ve even gotten vellum envelopes from them so that the recipient can see the card even before they open it. Aren’t I vain?
Several months ago I cleaned my iron, and having nothing else to post about (like today), I posted about my new clean, happy, shiny iron. Several people asked about the iron cleaner. Well, here it is:
You squeeze the stuff on to an old towel and start ironing away on it. The stuff turns black, and your iron gets all shiny. Gotta love an iron that doesn’t stick when it slides. I get a lot of goop on my iron because I use iron-on adhesive for everything. Also in the picture is some twill tape printed like measuring tape. I love it! This will go perfectly on a seamstress apron in the future. I also recently discovered FrayCheck – the little bottle on the bottom right. It’s a glue that keeps fabric from fraying. I’ve been using it to keep ribbon ties from fraying. Lovely, lovely.
And for my last sewing friend, we have Mr. Air Duster can. I’m just a little bit of a neat freak and when I see dust building up in my sewing machine and I can’t get to it, it drives me nuts. This little guy blows air – in a mighty strong burst (doesn’t that sound Texan?). It’ll blow lint out of my bobbin casing in less than a second. It also cleans out under the stitch plate beautifully. I got it in the photo section at WalMart and it should last me a good long while.
