Useful Tools

I realised why my Tilda Doll was in the too hard basket!
I lost my hemostat tool months ago and I really do not like trying to turn the doll arms etc without it.

Well, my hubby found it the other day!  I am celebrating.. so I will now get onto making my doll.
I highly recommend this tool for turning out doll parts.
I found some HERE  at the Cloth Doll Supply shop.
They come in three different sizes.

I highly recommend them. In the Tilda Doll Kits there is a kebab type stick in it for turning out the doll. This works but it makes the job very fiddly. 

Also, I new tool I came across at a Lynette Anderson class a couple of weeks ago.

Apliquick Tool

This tool is amazing to use with a bit of Rosanne Fabric glue your applique will never be the same.

Handstitched piecing... Yes.. Lynette handstitches hers.. and I can see why!

Those tools are amazing!! All done with glue Applquick and then the stitching

Not pressed yet... but Im happy with it.

Have a great day.

Glue? Hmmm, think I need to investigate that stuff.
I use vliesofix (sp?).

Oh and gorgeous projects you are working on too.

Hi Lisa, I wondered if you went to Lynette's class again this year. I hope you enjoyed yourself. Your projects look great, those stars look small?
