I love your blog and I love this giveaway!! My favorite sewing tool is iron-on hem tape. I use it in place of stitch in the ditch on my waist bands.
I am a big big fan of my rotary cutter.
I think I love the table-top ironing blanket that my husband got me for Christmas. I had a make-shift ironing station set up near my sewing machine because otherwise I had to keep going to a completely different room to press as I sew. (I think he might have been more worried about the finish on the small table I was using, but it was a sweet and thoughtful gift nevertheless.)
My seam-ripper is my most used tool however!

My seam ripper, helps fix those booboos

This has been a great series! Especially for someone who has had to teach herself a lot.

I really love my cutting mat and rotary cutter
rebecca shanks says
I love wonder clips!
Gotta say my tiny scissors. I use them all the time. Great for fixing little frayed edges, cutting hanging threads, and getting in tight spots.
Christine Crawford says
This looks so fabulous! Thank you!
Seam ripper. But the other favorite is some small scissors that are on a ribbon that hang around my neck. So easy to clip the little strings as I go instead of pretending I will do it after I get the project done.
Lisa H says
Favorite sewing tool…pins with large heads. I started sewing with the little guys and they were so hard to use!
Kim H says
My newest, and probably most favorite of the moment, is my walking foot. It’s solved so many of my problems and frustrations. How could I live without it until this point?
Patti McAvoy says
I just discovered wonder clips and love them! But my sharp gingher scissors- big pair and a small pair for snipping threads- are the superstars of sewing projects.

Good scissors! Plus my sewing machine.
my newest favorite tool is definitely wonder clips!!!!
I love my machine and stitch witchery
Savannah K says
I can’t even tell you how badly I want an actual real dress form since I started sewing. I’ve gone from trying to drape things on myself (disaster) to the duct tape dress form (bigger disaster), so winning this give away would be worth it just for that. 🙂 Or I can try again at getting one for my birthday.
My gingher shears!
Janet Frank says
I can truly say I wish I had known about needle nose bent point tweezers when I started. And painter’s tape. Both are SEW useful for anything that has to do with sewing or crafting! I’d love these great “goodies”….thanks for the chance to win!

My rotary cutter, it makes cutting out fabrics a cinch!

Vicki F. says
My favorite tool is my walking foot. My seams come out so much more even with it.
My favorite would have to be my seam ripper, or “unpicker” as I call it. 🙂
My favorite sewing tool is my sewing table that my husband made. It is oak and has a cabinet with drawers and the door holds thread, my sewing machine sits down in it so everything is flush with the top, it has a fold down extension so I can have a desk or table and it is on wheels so I can move it.
My favourite tool right now is my tailor’s chalk.
Either my iron or seam ripper!
Michelle Kulwicki says
Unfortunately it has to be my seam ripper- only because of how often I end up using it!
I use my bodkin a lot – so it could be my favorite, except that I am totally enamored with my super sharp scissors too …
My tube turner set!
Jennifer Essad says
I use my seam ripper all the time-carry one in my cosmetic bag as well
Marking pen by far…helps me keep all of my pattern pieces straight.
I’m not sure if it counts as a tool, but my favorite is fabric. It’s so pretty! 🙂
Ashley G says
My favorite sewing tool is definitely my rotary cutter and ruler! I cannot cut straight to save my life, until this came along and did! 😀 Good luck everyone!
I know everyone has said it, but I agree! My seam ripper.
My favorite tools are my rotary cutter, self healing mat & ruler 🙂
My ripper…for sure!
Kathy E. says
Well, besides my Viking Designer Ruby, my favorite sewing tool is my Kai scissors. They are so sharp, comfortable and perfect for cutting fabric. I have 3 pair in 3 sizes!
Morven's Handmades says
I can’t see how anyone can say anything else but her/his seam ripper, without it, everything would be a total mess, sleeves attached to hems, collars off centre, total mayhem
Rotary cutter and mat! Saves so much time.
My rotary cutter is for sure my favorite! I should probably say my seam ripper but I hate when I have to use it!
I love my sewing machine. She and I don’t always get along, but I couldn’t do nearly as much without her. Lately I’m also loving my heavy duty pinking shears and scissors. They were an impulse purchase from Ikea but they work great!
Linda Harris says
That would be my Ruffler foot,
Denise Key says
Great giveaway! My favorite sewing tool is my electric scissors! 🙂
My rotary cutter is the best!
My rotary cutter and mat
current favorite tool is a toss up between one step button foot on my new machine and my seem ripper…though saving for a dress form…so that will be in the running too I’m sure
Kathy M. says
My Gingher shears – love them!

My sewing machine when it works O.o

My favorite sewing tool is the seam ripper.
my favorite sewing tool… hmm.. it would be my seam ripper 🙂
Mickey Louth says
So glad to have multiple feet for my sewing machine esp the 1/4″ seam foot. That little guide is so handy to keep my seams accurate!

Michele T says
My favorite tool is the rotary cutter!!!
I’m drooling over this…and my keyboard is getting a little wet and slimy. Thank you for the opportunity. And a dress form! Oh, how I would love a dress form!
christina p says
I use my seam ripper a lot!

My favorite tool, by far is my sewing machine…but next to it, I’d say my scissors!
My favorite sewing tool is my old Riccar sewing machine that my dad bought from a door-to-door salesman before I was born. All metal parts and still sews great! They just don’t make them like they used to!
My favorite tool is my iron.
A bigger kitchen table! Okay, in all seriousness, two pairs of scissors. One for fabric and one for paper.
I think it might be my computer!!! I get the most ideas from it and can look up and learn how to do anything! That’s how I learned how to sew!
Oh how I love your giveaway!
probably my rotary cutter
My favorite tool is my rotary cutter and mat.
Beth D. says
My favorite tool is a combination of my rotary cutter, mat and my square ruler!!! ♥♥♥ them!
Vicki Richardson says
I would have to say I couldn’t live without my OTT light, she helps me see so much better. And my stitches appreciate her too.
I just got a new Janome a few months ago, so it’s my fave! But it probably doesn’t count as a tool. So I guess I’d say my rotary cutter. But my seam ripper gets used the most!
Favorite sewing tool=a magnifying glass…. my eyes aren’t what they used to be.
Tina Thompson says
My favorite sewing tool is actually something I stole from my husbands shop. His magnetic bolt bowl works perfectly for holding pins and needles and when you drop them on the floor, the large magnet is great at finding them 🙂 The bonus is that they are only $4 instead of $10+ for the “pretty” ones made specifically for sewing!!
My favorite tool is my sewing machine.
Thanks for the giveaway! My favorite sewing too is my seam gauge (small ruler with adjustable edge marker…maybe meant for knitting???) It’s perfect for getting a great hem on all types of fabrics.
Vanessa B says
My favorite tool would have to be my big cutting mat…its on my craft/sewing table and I use it for everything! Thank You!

My sewing machine that I got at a garage sale when I was a kid

Measure 10 times, cut once.
My favorite tool is my bias tape maker.
tina voyles says
I would be so lost without my seam ripper!
My favourite tool would have to be my rotary cutter. It makes cuts so much more crisp than I could ever manage with scissors, and without having to mark my fabric. I could not imagine cutting strips without it!
My “Cut ‘n Press”. It’s a cutting mat on one side and a pressing/ironing board on the other side…….so, so handy!!!
I have to go with the seam ripper camp. I would be lost without it. I can never complete a project without it – does that mean I am a bad sewer or just gung ho?!!
My rotary cutter and mat!
I really can’t live without my sharp scissors.
Louise Tomlinson-Sylvest says
My favourite sewing tool has to be my overlocker (serger for those from the US) I use it loads and got it incredibly cheaply from my husband’s grandmother when she was clearing out her craft room. A bargain at £50. She also gave me free run on her fabric stash and I literally walked away with hundreds of pounds worth of fabric! Amazing.
I also love my seam gauge and find it unexpectedly useful in a lot of projects.

my rotary cutter. whether quilting or cutting long straight seams…..
Sharon Nichols says
Favorite sewing tool? I would say its my seam gauge.
My favorite thing is my small sharp scissors hanging around my neck on a lanyard so they are always handy to clip threads. I use my small rotary cutter to undo my seams instead of a seam ripper. Sewing is my sanity because when you sew you have to use your whole mind and forget everything else. It is your small get away. I am caring for my 66 year old husband who has 4th stage cancer and my 82 year old mom so if I can steal a few minutes to sew, it’s for my mini vacations!! I am beginning slowly to teach my granddaughter who is 5 to sew now. We must pass it on!
I want to win!
This is a difficult one, I guess my favorite tool is a bamboo skewer.
