A few handy sewing gadgets

1. Roller cutter. I’ve had a few slips with this and chopped into my fabric (and tablecloth) but, used with weights, this is much quicker than pinning and cutting with scissors, especially with large pieces of fabric.

2. Popper clamp. I think the formal name is snap fasteners, but whatever they’re called they’re great. My set was super cheap off eBay and they have been known to pop off, so I could probably do with investing in a decent set!

3. Rolled hem foot. I found this tricky but once I got the hang of it, the results were very smart and simple. Ideal for neatening the edges of fine fabrics without creating chunky hems.
