Well actually it's probably no secret that 'My Trade Secret' would have to be my bias tape makers...........
I use them constantly for all sorts of things.....blanket edging, apron trim and straps, bag handles, drawstring bags, potholder trim.....anything I can find!
I'm even going to use them for the next pair of Moo Moo pants....I have the idea in my brain already.....I'm going to make a pair of corduroy pants and use the cow print to trim the pocket and the bottom leg seams.
I bought mine online from Clegs (you place the order online and they call back to confirm and get payment).
My next trade secret is my trusty Snap Setter.......
You just place the bottom part of the snap on the bottom plate, put the fabric over it, put the middle plate on top, add the top part of the snap, then place the top plate on and give it a few whacks with a hammer. It's quick and easy!
I bought the cool hammer from Snapsource too. When you take it apart it has a set of four screwdrivers....it's perfect for any crafty chick!
This is a gadget that I bought at Big W on Friday.....I don't know whether it's worthy of being a trade secret but it was only about $1.65 so I thought I'd grab it and test it out!
