Make no-sew rice bag warmers for quick, last minute gifts. Include a note for how to use the bag. These are perfect for calming angry Arthritis, Anxiety, or freeze them to use as an ice pack.

Cool Tip:
Don't toss the hem or flat fell seams from jeans. Use them for new belt loops, adding loops to jeans, kitchen or bathroom towels.... Just about anything you want a sturdy loop attached!

COOL TIP: Keeping hands moisturized while sewing or working with other creative techniques will save you from sore fingers. Dry and cracked cuticles are painful and can become infected.

Lotion bars or a small bottle of lotion at your work station are a convenient reminder to moisturize through the day. A bonus is that few moments of hand massage can relieve tension and stress.

Seam Rippers might seem harmless enough, but used incorrectly they can be harmful and damaging. There is a correct way to use it for maximum benefit of this tiny sewing tool.

Right Way: Gently push the long tip under the thread, sliding it slightly to the side. This prevents the thread from cutting and pulls it free quickly (Last picture).

No So Good Way: Pushing down, in, or even toward you are ways that are not so good. Not only can you tear the fabric but you can wind up with a painful stab (First two pictures).

When you need to cut the thread, use the middle.

Stop static electricity at your sewing machine by using one of the following tips:

1. Wax your thread;
2. Use a DIY dryer sheet;
3. Use a static brush.

Of course, humidifiers work well too. #daydreamssewing #kearneyne #sewing
