The Other Things

The Guild fabric sale a couple weekends ago had more to offer than just fabric. I had a few other purchases I never got around to posting.

I picked up a set of CrabApple Hill angel patterns. They were kitted with fabric, although I don’t know that I will use it with these patterns. Sneaky fabric, hiding in the patterns.

I also picked up a floss caddy with very little floss and a selection of ribbon.

There is more wired ribbon than anything, but a good amount of the ribbon is silk. What floss there is looks like mostly rayon or silk.

The box also contained this notion. The needle is attached to the finger piece.

If you know what this is, please leave a comment. I tried looking online but didn’t see anything quite like it.

    It is a laying tool that fits on your finger. Very helpful!!

    What an unusual looking thing. I don’t imagine you would sew with it as how would you pass it through the material – maybe for helping keep strands of things separate? But then why would you need the big spike on the end?

    It’s a stiletto for your finger. It helps with guiding fabric and with gluing hexagons and such.

    It can also be used to lay your fabric flat as you iron it.

    That stiletto looks wicked, and the box of ribbon looks like fun to play with. Sweet angel embroideries, too! All in all…a great haul! 🙂

    Very unique angel pattern. I like it!

    It’s also called a trolley needle or trolley tool. It is used mainly for needlepoint and silk ribbon embroidery. It is helpful in sewing as a stiletto guiding and stabilizing fabric pieces as they’re fed under the sewing machine’s presser foot.
