Clearly A Good Idea

I have a clearly simple T{ippity} Tuesday tip!I LOVE sewing on my projects but when I started crafting I have to say it was a bit of a pain. Changing thread colors wasn't really easy and I had about a dozen different bobbins threaded with all the different colors I had. I usually ended up just stitching with black because it was too much work to rethread the whole machine just to use pink on one project.
BUT this tip changed it all!!
CLEAR THREAD

Simple, right?!?! You only need ONE bobbin with clear thread...then you can change to any color you want simply by changing the spool on your machine. The clear thread only shows up on the bottom of your project and you can use any color you want...really quick...really easy :)
Now I sew on LOTS of my projects....here are a few to get your wheels turning.
HAPPY SEWING!!!!

If you can forgive the person you were, accept the person you are, and believe in the person you will become, you are headed for joy. So celebrate your life!

  2. That is a genius idea, Maria! One of the big reasons why I don't sew more on my cards, don't have the time. I am definitely going to try this! Thanks so much for sharing! :)
