I first locked my eyes on this new colour collection from Prym Consumer whilst I was at the H+H Cologne back in March and fell in love straight away! A few of these tools already exist in other colour ways but some are brand new and very exciting indeed!
Im starting off with the one I am most excited about and brand new! This Magnetic Arm Pin Cushion! It has a slap snap closure made from silicone so will fit any sized wrist. It has a decent sized stainless steel magnetic plate measuring 4cm x 5.5cm so you can get a good few pins on there. Its a great one to have whilst your at the your machine taking your pins out of your work as you go, I don’t know about you but I am forever leaving my pin cushion on the floor, on the cutting table, by the iron, basically anywhere but next to my sewing machine and then I have nowhere to put my pins so this will come in super handy!
The next tool I am also very excited about is this little bird Needle Threader. You place the needle onto her beak so the metal beak goes through the eye of the needle, there is a little hook at the end of the beak for your thread to catch on, once that’s done, pull the needle off of the beak and wah – lah your needle is threaded! I love the design of this one, its so adorable, and so simple to use too, I’m starting to do a lot more hand sewing nowadays so its definitely a must have tool for me and I will get lots of use from it.
If your a fan of butterflies, Prym has you covered with these new Flat Head Pins, not only are these great for keeping your layers in check but they also make super cute photo props too! These come in a pack of 50 with 2 different designs and 3 colours.
Prym also do Binding clips, these are the larger sized ones and come in really handy when your working with really thick layers!
Another must have tool for me is a tape measure! I use a tape measure every day, I’m always measuring stuff to make sure this bit will fit that bit and I mean pink polka dot! can you get any cuter!?. This tape measure also comes in blue polka dot and both are available in either 150cm, 150cm/60″ or 300cm/120″.
Next up and continuing on with the polka dot theme is this marking pencil, this pencil is white, a good one to use with darker coloured fabrics, I use mine for marking quilting lines and this one disappears with water.
One of my all time favourite Prym tools are these Vario Pliers, I cannot rate these enough! They are great for bag making. They can be used with snaps which come in an array of colours and designs including hearts and stars, I also use these for eyelets and they can be used with eyelets upto 8mm in size. they are so easy to use, you don’t have to use much pressure to secure each piece to the fabric and they are so much better than using a hammer, a really great tool that I highly recommend! and now they come in Pink! Yay!
The final tool in this post is this corner and edge shaper, it’s not only another great one for bag making, but cushion making too, in fact anything that needs a corner poking out, there will be no more accidently piercing holes with your scissors and you can put those chop sticks back in the kitchen drawer, this handy little gadget will do the job for you.
So, if your a fan of anything pink (like me) then you will absolutely love this new collection. These tools are great quality anyway and having them in pink is just the icing on the cake!
