Store tools stylishly

The insert is designed to hold many types of tools in a vertical position, from scissors to rulers and marking tools. Simply place a tool into the lattice and the silicone grips and supports it.

Grip needles for hand sewing
Hand-sewing thick fabric, or stitching patches and other items with stiffbackings, can be tough on your fingers. Use these Needle Pullers from EverSewn to more easily draw the needle through the fabric. The flexible fingertip covers have small holes for ventilation. Each also has a bumpy surface for increased grip. This enables you to push the needle in and pull it through with less hand strain. The silicone stretches to fit most finger sizes. The set contains one medium-sized and one small-sized needle puller to fit a thumb and fore finger. The open tip accommodates longer fingernails comfortably without ripping.
