Little gadgets and notions - Corner template

I have not had this long, but it is already coming in handy.  I have several cardboard corner templates that I use to box corners that I cut myself, but rounding is not always as easy.

It had little spots that are supposed to make it grippy


I have acquired several templates, my husband often adds them to my Christmas presents, that are aimed at quilters, but use them all the time with my rotary cutter, which I tend to use most of the time rather than scissors.

Little gadgets and notions - foldback clips

I made a little bag for my 'turners' and hang them from my shelves so that i never lose them.

These paper turn back clips are really useful.  You can use them for

  • holding fabric
  • hooks as seen in the picture
  • cable tidy - clipped to a shelf or desk running the cable through them.
There must be more uses....just can't think of them at the moment!

Little gadgets and notions - point turner


I guess everyone has something for this, I kept misplacing mine, so bought a few different types over the years, and have now found them all.

Have to say the knitting needle is used the most, it is fact enough to have a nice rounded point.

The little metal one is handy with its little red measure, but it is too flimsy to be an effective point turner.
