1. Rotary Blades
They work. I cut both quilt fabric and heavier fabric with no problem. Are they as good as new Olfa blades? I'm not sure, but for $1.99 for a two pack, I will be buying more.
2. Mini Vacuum Attachment Kit
This is only $7.99. I bought this kit for $12 when I took a sewing machine class over two years ago and LOVE it. It works great at getting into the nooks and crannies of my machine and sucking all the dust and fuzz out. It fits onto the hose attachment of all vacuum cleaners (that's what the package says). This is a "must have" in my opinion for anyone who does a lot of sewing.
3. Knee Pads
I use these when I'm pinning my quilts. Either I'm old (which I am) or I have delicate knees, because they really hurt unless I'm wearing knee pads. They have a large variety ranging in price from $2.99 to $10.99.
4. Garden Gloves
These are $5.99 for a three pack. They had a light rubber grip which I think would work great for quilting.
5. Magnetic Wrist Band
At only $2.99, I bought one. I think this would work great when using pins and not near a pin cushion. Also I thought this would work when I drop my needle in the sofa when I'm doing hand sewing and can't find it right away. The magnetic strip would help in grabbing the needle before I find it with my finger...we'll see how that works.
6. Tool Bag on Wheels
Ladies, I thought this bad boy would work great as a sewing machine travel bag. It measures 20" long, 18" wide and 10" deep. It's only $18.99 and has a total of 21 pockets inside and out. It has an adjustable handle, two wheels for pulling and is made out of heavy duty tool bag material. My machine is 12" tall, but if I didn't already have a travel bag, I would load my machine in the car, drive over and see if it fit.
7. Working Hands Hand Cream
I don't know about you, but my hands get dry and cracked in the winter. This was $6.99 and I did not buy any...this time.
8. Foam Brushes
I know, it's not quilt related, but if you're crafty, can you really ever have too many of these around the house. They're only $1.99 for the variety bag of 10 brushes.
9. Spring Clamp Set
Look at how cute and colorful these things are! I have no idea what I'm going to use them for, but they were only $.99 for all six and I LOVE THEM!!
10. Metal Cow Bell
Why cow bells? Because you just never know when you're going to need more cow bell, and they're only $3.99!
That's my 10 Minute Tip on Cheap Rotary Blades and my new favorite store, Harbor Freight.
