Pilot Frixion Color sticks Clover Chaco Liners (Order here*)

I love the Frixion pens for marking on my fabrics because they are precise and fine. Just be sure to test on scraps before using on your garment. For time that the pens won’t work I love the clover chaco liners as they still keep a fine line and they are chalk so you can brush it off.

AKUNSZ Gold handles 9.5 Shears w/snips, Tula Pink Rainbow Holographic 8″ shears, Gingher 8″ Dressmaker Shears (order here*)

Some prefer rotary cutters, but I use shears for my fabric cutting. A good pair of shears makes a world of difference.

Labels give that level of professionalism to handmade projects. Kylie and the Machine makes some of the best labels.
