Clever Links: September 27, 2012

Small things can change a life. That's my motto with these clever links. They don't mean a lot, just to make your day-to-day sewing easier, but they can be lifechanging! If you want to know more, then just keep on reading...

Costumized Hangers
Even though this isn't really sew-related, I'm still posting this one. 'Cause you need hangers to keep all your clothes - wether you made them yourself or not - organized. And how better to do this than with these cute hangers. All you need is a needle nose plier, wire cutters, drill and a pen or marker. Before you know it, you'll have your very own hanger with your name on it (or perhaps a nice flower or something).

Biais Tape
Grosgrain found this amazing how-to on making 5 yards biais tape out of a fat quarter. Really amazing! If you don't know what a fat quarter is, let me explain it to you. Basically, it's very simple: it's a piece of fabric cut according to a specified size: 18"x22" (46cm x 56cm).
