I was gifted with a purple Thang. I didn't think I would use it but it is very handy.

I love, love, love, pin cushions. I made a few of these cute pin cushion rings with bottle caps. Super fun. Notes: I use a hammer and a nail to start the holes in the bottle cap, then work my scissor tips in them to make them bigger and a hair tie works for the elastic.

I like small plastic boxes with lids that are secure. Walmart carries a selection of sizes. They are good for keeping pins, needles, and the mid-sized is even big enough for a small to medium-sized pair of scissors. I use one to carry my kit for hand sewing. Smallest are about $1, mid-sized about $2.50.

I like to have and to make fabric boxes and bowls. I keep wonder clips, sewing machine feet and all manner of things in them.

I like that thread wastebasket for ends of thread clippings that is a triangle made out of fabric with 3 buttons to hold down the flap..

An extra seam ripper. That made me chuckle. I have over a dozen, all over my sewing room. I lay one down and it disappears. I don't waste time looking for it, I go to my seam ripper, snip, and scissor basket and get another one. Eventually they all show up again. Same with rotary cutters. I can't find the one I'm using I'll take another out of the basket.

Our guild gave blank name tags to new members and all they had to do was write their name with a permanent pen and they were set. Most were made from a small quilt block.
