- When I cut out a pattern I pop a sticker on the front to show what garment or view I have used and also the size, this means I can see all this at a glance rather than having to pull out pattern pieces to work things out.
- I have started to "bulk" buy my zips from e bay, it often works out at less than 50p per zip if you buy 10. I keep them in a see through zip lock bags and put a note on to show the length and most importantly the type of zip that is in there. We all know about me and zip fear without adding any other complications!
- When I was attending my sewing class I also used a zip lock bag to keep my thread, my bobbin and the zip together in my bag. So when I started my next project I did the same thing so that I knew I had everything I needed before I started the project.
- Using a sharpie I have marked 0.5cm increments on my sewing machine to try and make it easier to keep sewing in a straight line at the correct seam allowance.
