    Freezer paper! I use it to print my labels on the fabric from my printer. Found the tutorial here - http://craftygemini.blogspot.com/201...-for-free.html

    A knitting needle is great for turning straps for totes.

    Elmer's Washable School glue. I can tame any block, border or anything else using dots of it.

    Cookie cutters for templates. Medicine bottles for used needles and pins.

    I also use medicine bottles for used needles. I use tins for holding pins. I use make-up bags for holding my binding kits (made several so I can work on different projects and take them with). I use the covered pony tail holders around bobbins (saw as a suggestion elsewhere).

    I have the Harbor Freight blades as well.
