What's missing from my sewing basket....?

Wow!  Isn't it amazing
how we take it for
granted that everyone
just keeps needle and 
thread in our
sewing baskets!
Thank you to 
everyone for your
input of what
you have in 
your sewing basket.....

What do you have in your sewing basket?

Apart from the
typical sewing items, I also

......pegs to help hold things together.....
....sticky tape for when I need a
thimble - the metal ones just DON'T work for
....clip seal lunch bags to store project pieces in....
.....talcum powder for when hands feel sticky, or oily....
.....cotton wool sticks - handy for removing water soluble fabric marking lines....
...and not forgetting.....

.....a magnet for finding stray pins and needles....
and a wooden spoon to help turn fiddly pieces through.

If only my basket included photography :)

What do you have in your sewing basket that you can't do without?

Happy crafting,  Jenny
