Unique Tools for Crafts

If you enjoy sewing and doing many types of crafts, you will find that there are many unique tools that can be used that will make your life a whole lot easier. While there were not many tools available for sewing and crafts just a few decades ago, there are so many unique and interesting tools that you can now use during the process of creating your artistic masterpieces.

Armour Crochet Hooks

These updated crochet hooks come in a variety of colors, which will make it easier for you to figure out which hook is needed for the particular item that you are crocheting. The crochet hooks come in shades of yellow, red, green, blue, and even purple. These colors are bright and bold, basically reminiscent of the spring season.

Aside from color, they also feature a comfortable grip and a hook that is easy to work with, which is especially ideal for longer crocheting projects. In the past, you may have been using crochet hooks that all look the same, which can definitely cause confusion when you are trying crochet a blanket, clothing, or any other item. These hooks help to eliminate much of that frustration and make it easy for you to use the right hook at all times.

Fastening Strips for Projects

Dual lock strips come in handy for assorted projects. They are much stronger than traditional Velcro, which is why people prefer to use these dual strips instead. They are also waterproof and resistant to extreme temperatures. The strips come in a black color and easily blend with different items. If you think of any project that you have used Velcro on before, you can basically replace the Velcro for these strips instead.

Leather Thimbles

You may be used to those uncomfortable metal thimbles by now, but you do have options when it comes to the types of thimbles you use to protect your fingers while sewing. In fact, there are natural leather thimbles that are made to fit perfectly on the fingers for the utmost protection. These thimbles are far more comfortable than the bulky ones.

Aside from these leather thimbles, there are also special grip thimbles, as well as adjustable ring thimbles to choose from.

Embroidery Products

If you are a fan of embroidery, there are many products out there that can really expand your craft. Of course, you will need different types of thread in assorted colors. Along with the thread, there are beading tools if you plan to do bead embroidery. The Kantan Couture beading embroidery tool happens to be one of the most popular. It is a hook that is attached to cloth and it will allow you to perform the necessary techniques of embroidery. You will be able to use it to add patterns with both beads and sequins to spice up your art project and give it a more appealing look.

These unique tools for sewing and crafts are constantly raved about by people who regularly enjoy arts and crafts projects. You will find that each of these tools can make things a whole lot easier for you, allowing you to complete your assorted projects in less time than you normally would, and relieving any unwanted stress that can come along with trying out a bunch of different art projects.
