I'm not sure if this would be considered a sewing accessory; however, your zipper instructions on the wristlet pattern are my "go to" instructions for any bag zip installation. They are easy to understand and always look great.
BTW, this new e-pattern is fabulous!

Carole said...

Not for sure what to pick - a simple item would be the rotary cutter. Thanks for the chance to win!

my laptop! I just open my e-pattern folders and start sewing. I just the pattern pieces and don't bother to print the tutorial. I don't have to worry about losing a page or have stacks of tutorials lying around.

My favorite accessory is a glue stick! I'd be lost without my glue stick.

Pez said...

A cup or bowl of various sizes. I use them to make circular edges on improvised patterns.

Heavy-duty washers from the local hardware store....at 50 cents each they are cheap, plentiful, and the best pattern weights going! The best part is, if I misplace them, it is cheap and simple to replace them.

Ginger said...

My favorite sewing accessory to use is pins. I don't know how people sew clothing without using pins.

A great pair of scissors. Love my ginghers, in every size!

Hugs,

Bethany said...

My favorite accessory is my tailor's awl--it gets where my chubby fingers need to go but can't (as in close to the needle) or shouldn't (as in near the iron).

Maggie said...

My favorite accessory is a cutting mat. It provides a smooth surface for cutting and piecng.

Christine said...

Definately my little embroidery scissors. Great for snipping threads close, clipping curves, getting into tight spots. Luv the pattern Leah.

Zipper foot. Gotta love it. :)

For an actual sewing tool it would be my rotary cutter and mat. For a non-sewing item it would be my trusty chopstick used for pushing out points or turning straps.

I love my little pin "pillow", the one you stick your pins in when you're not using them.

Chris said...

the iphone works great for easy access to a tutorial, it's small and doesn't get in the way like the lap top.

Mama Lusco said...

These would make great gifts! My favorite gadget is my ruffler attachment. It's saved me hours while sewing for my 2 girls! mamalusco at ortelco dot net

midnight hysteria said...

second try!!! LOL

i guess my favorite sewing accessory would have to be my wonderful bernina ... i purchased it last year, used -- it was a choice rather than a new *plastic* one -- and every day, i learn something new that it does .... i love it .... my chopstick, too, for those pesky corners!

Diane said...

My favorite sewing accessory and the one I use the most is my curved tweesers. They are great to pulling the thread thru the needle, pushing tight little corners out to a perfect point and so many other little things. Great give away!! Me email is...hovis1971@yahoo.com

MaddyMazeStudio said...

I love my seam ripper!

Andi said...

My favorite accessory would have to be my little scissors to trim threads and my trash can I keep right next to me to push those threads and fabric in.....great pattern!

Peggy Steinbronn said...

My favorite sewing accessory is my pair of forceps. I use them to stuff things, to turn things, to pull needles through thick fabric--I couldn't live without them! They are very easy to use and quite versatile.

I love my Roxannes Glue Baste It, I love the stuff and use it on so many things, from holding down binding to hand-sew, to zips, to scout badges, it's like having an extra couple of pairs of hands!

Rachel said...

I can't live without my seam ripper... though I would really like to be able to! ;)

gladys said...

Something I use very much are old Xrays. I clean then in bleach and then use them to cut out templates. They are great to use and a way of recycling too!!! Happy Hollidays to all!!

Phyrflie said...

My fav piece is the re-inherited butcher's table we got from a cousin. I no longer have to bend all the way over to cut my material now :)

Ruffler foot...just love it

Jennifer said...

I think my favorite sewing accessory is my seam ripper. Is that wrong to say? When it's needed I'm so thankful I have it. I used to always use one of those tiny ones that only makes you hate the task of ripping seams all the more. I finally bought one that fits my hand nicely. I love it!
