This cool tool cuts the circle with important notches and it snips the entire circle so it's ready to fluff up as a rag quilt when laundered. Heather talked about other methods for cutting circle but it's easy to see why her favorite method is using her Accuquilt GO machine. Explore more about the Accuquilt cutting system HERE.
In talking about storing jeans for future use, Heather told us she likes to sort by color, and often cuts up the jeans into usable pieces, keeping the extra parts such as pockets, zippers, etc. aside to use for embellishment purposes.
Having a mini iron is an essential in her sewing repertoire. When I asked Heather what helps make her sewing space a happy place, she said she likes to see what she has, so storing supplies in clear containers helps her make her sewing space a happy place. Having her 3 dogs near by, with their dog beds finding a prominent place in her space keeps her happy too!!!
