Savers Shopping.

 No sewing yesterday as I spent all night shampooing the carpets in the whole house and they took all day to dry so I went to Savers. Got what I needed, files for the cabinet for $2 and today I filled them.
 Also bought these satin rolls of ribbon, I will be using them for dresses and the edges of blankets/ comforters.
 I had an Idea and went to see if it would work, and it does! Using the bias binding makers that do not come with the machine, I just used duct tape to hold it on I ran the ribbon through the machine straight from the roll.
 I ran it through twice and was happy with the result.
 Then I ran some other that I had folded in half without the bias maker, again I ran it through twice.
Ready for use. The first one is the ribbon in half and the other two are the ones using the bias maker.


  1. WOW so quick and awesome Sue, I have one of the bias makers but what is the machine you are putting it through ?

  2. If ever I come travelling down your way, one place I will definitely be visiting is - SAVERS, WOW you get some awesome bargains there, I haven't found anything like that place up my way..

  3. You clever thing Sue! And I agree with Kaylee about Savers...sounds a wonderful place :-)
