My favorite notion is my Fiskars heavy duty shop snips... they look like a weapon lol!

I love my wood iron. Great for pressing the little seams while at the sewing machine.
I love my retractable tape measure. Its always waiting and no mess to unwind!!
I love a GOOD seam ripper. That and my little thread clippers, I have a pair tied to my sewing machine to keep them from running away.
rotary cutter so much easier than scissors
pincushion. me encantan son tan variados, como lo que uno se puede coser. hay uno para cada costurera
I use an 'eyebrow razor' as a seam ripper--never cuts me or the fabric. The tool I actually use the most is a June Tailor Perfect HALF-SQUARE AND QUARTER SQUARE TRIANGLE ruler. I love it for swuaring up all the snowball corners and triangles left from binding!
I have a love-hate relationship with my seam ripper. If I did not have it, there would be a lot more wasted material.
These things are GREAT for when I don't want to use pins - they're called Clover Wonder Clips, and I love them. I also love my rotary cutter and pad.
My favorite.. by far is Fray Check. When working with a thin gauze, or light silk, I always worry about the seam fraying, even if finished just due to the nature of the fabric.. Fray Check works wonders.. and I have found so many other uses for it! I love to make barbie clothes for the kids, and lets face it, sewing that small the seams will get a work out being pulled on and off by little hands. Fray check to rescue! Love it!
I love my little snips and keep them close and use them all the time. And even though I do use my seam gauge, I have this 14 in 1 measuring gauge that I've found myself using ALL the time! I misplaced it once and was so sad, but now it's safe and sound and I'm a happy sewer again. :)
