Unexpected Tools for Quilters


  • Stiletto Heel- Hold down the fabric with a stiletto hell as you feed it under the presser foot. Your seam allowances will come out more even.

     
  • Sandpaper- Glue fine sandpaper to a piece of foam board. Use this board under your fabric to hold it snuggly in place with no slipping.

     
  • Paper lunch sack- Fold down a paper sack a few inches and tape to the edge of your sewing table. Drop scrap fabric, excess thread and other trash into this bag as you sew to keep your area clean.

     
  • Old Car Mat- Place an old car mat under your sewing machine foot pedal to keep it from shifting.

     
  • White Vinegar- A cup of white vinegar added when prewashing fabrics will help set colors.

     
  • Furniture glides- Tape a thin Teflon rectangle to the bed of the sewing machine as a guide for seam allowances. The sticky, felt circle kind also help to secure rulers and other supplies.
