Favourite things friday

Its time for favourite things Friday again thanks to Shay at http://fairybreadmusings.blogspot.com/2011/10/favourite-things-friday_28.html

This week its something nice and simple, a seam roller.

Wooden Seam Roller

I find this little tool to be a huge advantage when paper piecing. Every time I do the flippy thing I can press the seam down with this. I don't bother with the iron until the block is finished. That saves me loads of time as I don't  have a perfect, ergonomically designed sewing room (i.e. I have to get up to the iron and ironing board). Especially if I am doing something really fiddly with lots of little pieces this works a treat.

It does seem like a handy thing for paper piecing. I think I have one among my wallpapering supplies. Great tip, thanks!
