Theme Thursday – More neat tools

It makes me happy that almost every craft related tool out there seems to be available in so many shapes and styles – making things with more personal tools just adds to the experience, in my opinion. No more boring generic scissors, or ugly thimbles. Want scissors shaped like a ladybug? Prefer skulls? Both are possible! The only problem is to choose a favourite.

 

Which one would you pick? I can’t decide. I’m leaning towards ladybug and skulls (nope, couldn’t cut it down to just one – besides, they have different uses!)

Encase your fingertip in candy a pretty thimble to avoid stabbing it. Or get one of each and wear as crazylady finger jewelry…

I don’t really need to say how much I love these, right? Especially the black and yellow one, since I have a special place in my heart for the old vintage Singer machines.

Gotta catch them all! Well, collect. Because they’re colourful and stuff.

The Scissors are so great. I would get the lady bug and the Skulls ones as well. Also I love the chibi needle container!

I already have two of the chibi needle sets - they're actually very good tapestry needles, so there's both function and form :) Anything that prevents me from losing needles all over the place is good.
