Default New to me company and tool

You know how we stumble across something interesting looking at other things? While reading today's Scrapbook Update on the 2019 Christmas papers...I saw a company I did not recognize so I had to chase that down...Called Dress my Craft, it is Indian, and the only place I see it selling here is Scrapbook.com

They have papers, stencils, flower making tools, book tools, glitters etc.

What caught my eye was the bone folders- which they have a selection of and I have attached the vid of. At 4:40 they talk about the different shapes. At 15:58 is where she shows the use of the rounded edge in making a cover corner. It is her first vid and she is nervous poor thing.

I personally want the pencil shape which is of course sold out. Looks comfortable to the hand and good for if I want to make "Frame lines" around an image. I dont know the right term.




For people who makes flowers this looks like a possible supply choice too.


Here is the link for the holiday paper review that started this

Interesting! They have some beautiful papers, don't they? I went down a rabbit hole yesterday looking through the Featured Stamper gallery - saw an embossing folder she'd used and went looking for it, ended up ordering that and a handful of other things! Amazing how we discover things we never knew we needed, isn't it? FYI - I use a stylus to make "frame lines" - an option in lieu of the pencil-shaped bone folder...

Peeked at it really quick before heading in to work. Very intriguing! Now I can't wait to come back home and add a few things to my wish list!

I have a stylus set. I am just intrigued with that thing. The shape reminds me of those woodless colored pencils.

I like the looks of their papers. Very old fashioned looking--like from the early 60's. They seem to have quite a few things to make flowers with also.

I was looking at this company a couple of weeks ago. I noticed they brought our "skittles" back. Do you all remember skittles? Dress My Craft Clear Water Droplets 4

I fell in love with this die- Dress My Craft Floral Guitar Dies

The bone folder pencil is a sewing turning tool. Oh, I hope I got that correct. Sewists save me, lol. I have one exactly like that bone folder. I had it for years. I know that many Indian women use them to do the detail beading on their beautiful gowns and to shape details in their garments. I am so dyslexic. I hope a sewist can clarify better than my botched attempt.

I have one for sewing doll clothes. I do tiny detail work so it's a lifesaver. I bought mine years and years ago at an Asian store. I can't even think of the proper name so you can all find one. This is bugging me. My sewing box is set up for dolling and not regular sewing so it's a quirky box full of quirky tools.


Seam Creaser! That's another name for it. Point Turner or Turning Tool.

I thought the hydrangea paper was gorgeous.
I've been sewing all my life almost, though not as much in recent years, and I've never come across that tool before. Thank you for educating me. It might have saved a few burnt fingers over the years with detail work. I'll definitely pop one in my Amazon basket as an add-on some time.

I still use clear Dew Drops from time to time on my cards, but having sometimes received cards where they had been smashed in the mail, I always bear that in mind when using them .
