I thought I would show you what I have recently bought. It's a 'We R Memory Keepers' Sew Easy stitch piercer. I am not one to be taken in by 'new gadgets' but I love sewing on pages - either machine or hand-sewing. I am not much good at getting straight lines when I sew, so when I saw this little gadget I had to get one.
The pack I received includes a Sew Easy Stitch Piercer Tool, with various stitch piercer heads that are interchangeable. I can choose from Burst Stitch, Cross Stitch, Scallop Stitch and a Straight Stitch. There's also a piercing mat, a needle and 4 cards of floss (embroidery thread to us non-Americans).
I tried it out on Tuesday at the scrapbook crop and was suitably impressed with the first attempts I made. I still have problems keeping straight lines (even following pencil lines) but after a few tries, I think I'm liking this little toy (oops I mean craft tool).
Have you come across this gadget yet? Do you own one? What gadget (or craft item) would you not be able to live without? Leave a comment and let me know and I will enter your name into the Blog Candy draw (that's if you qualify - rules on the left of this page). Thanks for stopping by.
