Day Two of Favorite Things Week


Let's see, hmmmm......my favorite item. That is a hard decision for me, because I love all my notions! The newest thing we have in the store is a 2 1/2" x 18 1/2" non-slip Creative Grid ruler. I love smaller rulers like this one, because they are so easy to grab and not as cumbersome (big word) to use. It is also good to replace your rulers once in a while to make sure you have sharp edges. Sometimes I cut a little shaving off the edges when I am cutting - purely accidental (ha, ha!).

This looks like a nice addition to the rulers I already have. I have "cut" a little off of a couple of my rulers too. Ooops!

I guess it's better to cut off the edge of the ruler than to cut off the edge of the fingers! Nice rulers!

I love Creative Grid rulers - I've found them the easiest to read of all the rulers I've used! Thanks for the tip on the 2 1/2" size!

Julie said...

I've never used one. I'll definitely have to check it out!

Steve Wilhite said...

A girl can't have too many rulers. It is another sickness I think. BUT, they all have their uses. All of mine are Omnigrid--haven't tried the Creative Grid. What makes them better do you think?

KayCee Burnside said...

I'm still borrowing a lot of my mom's tools while I build up my own collection. I'd love something like this to add to what I have!

Ashley said...

I only have a few rulers since I'm new to sewing, but these look awesome. I'll have to give them a try.

MarRae said...

I'm just getting started and love new ideas. The ruler is "outstanding."

Jennie said...

Looks interesting...I will have to come check it out.

I have a small square one and love it, I also understand about the big ones being so cumbersome. The only time I use the big one is to strips.

You can never have enough rulers! And you can't go wrong with a Creative Grid ruler!

Tressa said...

Now that sounds like a very nice size ruler.

Nettie said...

Now this sounds like a ruler I could really use in my collection. Most of my rulers are not the adhesive-backed kind, and they slip sometimes, also they are so well used that the writing is wearing off!

Tina said...

I love the smaller rulers too. I always reach for a small one when it will do. It saves space on your cutting table too.

Lynn & Carolyn said...

I love the fact that it is a non slip ruler. Mine are always slipping. Carolyn

Patsy said...

Looks like I'll have to get a new ruler. I love the smaller size.

beth said...

I have an omni grid so I would love to try a different kind!

Tammy Taylor said...

Nice rulers - the edges on mine are getting pretty shaved up.

Anniebananie said...

Oh this looks like another notion must have!!!!

Vicki Bogie said...

Wendy you are so right. I just switched to Creative Grid Rulers and am totally in love with them, they don't slip and I love that you seem to see the markings better than other rulers.

Would love to add another Grid to my newest obsession.

Krista said...

I thought I was the only one who shaved off the edges! haha

Christy said...

I'm a notion"a"holic :) Who on this earth couldn't use another ruler ? What a fun idea this Favorite Things you're doing! Love it!

Mary said...

I love the idea of having a smaller ruler for special uses, and the creative grid looks like one I want to have. Thanks for the tips

paula said...

i don't think I own a ruler with the numbers still showing. I love new rulers.

Shannon said...

I must say I don't have that one in my ruler stash yet. Might have to add it soon though. Looks like a perfect size.

Doug & Annette said...

One can never have too many rulers!

Julie said...

Would love to win!! julie

Sara said...

This would be a great addition. Never can have enough rulers!

Dani said...

Isn't it great to have the right tools for a project? Then all your energy goes toward the creative endeavor instead of getting those dollar store scissors to cut a yard of fabric in strips (or some other crazy expectation!)

Lamse said...

I love creative grid rulers! I don't realize how spoiled I am until I use another brand.

Lori Young said...

The perfect size for cutting binding! Gotta love a good ruler!

Janelle said...

I would love a new ruler!

Dani said...

Having a bit of trouble leaving a post, but hope this one works! It is a common phrase in my household to say we need the right tool to do a good job. And it certainly makes the process more fun, too!

Sherri said...

I've never had a Creative Grid ruler, this looks like a wonderful one!

Diana said...

Thank you for this blog great idea. I will now go back to the store an check out this ruler. Believe it or not I only have one ruler. Very cool idea.

julie said...

I'm out of touch! I'm usually checking out the fabrics when I visit the store, and have never seen a creative grid ruler. It must be fun to work in the store and see all the new products.

Paula said...

I agree that the small size rulers could be a great addition to anyone's collection. I have a few shaved off edges also.

Kalani said...

Love it!

Devanie said...

The ruler looks great! I am going to need to try it out! My current ruler is pretty big!

galbraithfam said...

OHhHHH, that look so nice and I definitely am in need of a new ruler! I'm' just starting and need something of my own--rather than my mother in laws! I'm crossing my fingers!

julie said...

I want this! (Am I coming on too strong?) More and more comments each day of the contest. Fun idea, and this is a great prize.
