Too cute

I've banged on before about the Korbond lint roller.  When I'm sewing, finishing blocks, trimming the threads on a quilt, I snip and roll, snip and roll, snip and roll.  That way you can clean up thread-covered sewing without making a thread-covered room or covering yourself in thread.  But I confess, I couldn't resist this mini handbag version in the supermarket yesterday.  Perfect for a travel sewing kit.

  1. Spray on quilt, roll off cotton. This sewing malarky is getting more and more appealing by the day.

  2. But I love going to work covered in threads from an early morning session, it's my favourite thing ever after being covered in dog hair

  3. I use these lint rollers when I quilt and sew! I would not be caught without them.

  4. What a wonderful idea!!! I'm in the process of finding and snipping invisible threat off the backside of a large quilt. This will help me find and keep them all tidy! Thanks for the tip!

  5. I did some sewing lately that all had to be taken out with my handy dandy seam ripper ~ then discovered how well the lint roller works to take those pesky threads away ~ it's my new sewing tool!

  6. I also use lint rolls when sewing. They're awesome. I always clear my workspace with them too, and my cutting mat :)

  7. This is a great idea...I have many in my house & in my desk at work, but didn't think of it in the sewing room!

  8. Aww a dinky one! I use the big one all the time :-) Good for picking off all the wee bits of thread from the inevitable 20 times I've had the ripper out...

  11. It feels like I could fill the whole roller sometimes when I do that. I can't believe all the threads left behind.
