Notions: Sewing Machine Foot Organizer

Tools for smarter sewing
Threads #195, Feb./March 2018

At-a-glance organization

Sewing Machine Foot OrganizerThis multifunctional Sewing Machine Foot Organizer keeps your small notions, such as presser feet, bobbins, scissors, thread, and needles, in order. Each tool can have its own section in one of the 15 clear zippered pockets, where you can always find it quickly. The organizer stays closed with a hook-and-loop tape tab, so it can travel or be placed neatly in a drawer or on a shelf for storage. It also works well as a project bag: Place all the small notions you need for a sewing or quilting project in it, and they are ready to use when you need them.

Dynamic marking duo

Fast and accurate fabric marking makes sewing easier and more precise. The Sewline Duo Fine Fabric Marker and Eraser are tools you may reach for with every sewing project. The roller-ball marker makes dark, distinct lines, which disappear with an application of the eraser pen fluid. The set is available in two sizes: medium or fine point. Make sure to always test the marker and eraser on a fabric scrap prior to use.
