I am always keeping a list of tips on sewing that maybe some day I will get to use. I decided that I would start to share them with all of you. Maybe some of you already do these, but maybe there are a few that might learn a new tip. So here is the first of the tips.
- Use a toilet brush (dry and clean) to pick up loose threads around sewing area on the carpet. (I don't have a toilet brush....I am a sponge user so I just added this picture for you)
- To clean leftover fusibles on your iron, use fabric softener sheets. Heat your iron-no steam and iron the fabric softener until the fusible is removed. It may take a few sheets.
- If your thimble is a little too large for your finger, remove it, lick your finger and put the thimble back on. Now the thimble won’t fly off your finger!
I will have to try the first one since I haven’t tried it yet and if your room is like mine the thread is about to strangle me!
I actually do use the fabric softener sheets to clean my iron and it works absolutely wonderful!! It is a great idea!
