Like that pair of adorable shoes I bought on my last trip to NYC. Black leather ballet flats with an embroidered red rose on the toes, how could I resist them? But those blisters were not adorable. The shoes are now in a box ready to be donated to Goodwill. And don’t get me started on those wildly expensive coils I bought thinking I would be able to use them with my Cinch. Big mistake. Guess where they are? If you guessed sitting next to those shoes in the Regret Box, you’re right!Now anyone who knows me also knows that I LOVE Hug Snug Seam Binding. And, for the last year I have been thinking about ordering the 200 Sample Color Guide of Hug Snug Seam Binding from Zipperstop. What has stopped me was the fact that the sample color guide was $24.95 and for that price I could buy 4 rolls of Seam Binding, so I figured why waste my money? Did I really need it?
This Blog Post has a very happy ending because after much angst I placed my order with Zipperstop.com. And dear friends, let me share with you the wonders of this 12 ½” x 18” 200 Sample Color Guide of Hug Snug Seam Binding. It is nirvana for someone like me who online could not tell the difference between Trophy Gold and Antique Gold. I can now.
And who would have guessed that it wasn’t Fig Brown Seam Binding that I needed for my Wine Themed Wedding Guest Journals but Log Brown?
Or that for the Pin-Up Gal Journal I needed Caviar Pink,
not Rose Petal Hug Snug Seam Binding?
Ladies and Gents, this was the best $24.95 I have spent in a long, long time. My only regret now is that I waited so long to invest in the Color Guide…and that I bought those shoes. Do you also love Hug Snug? What’s your favorite color? Oh, you don’t know because you don’t own the Color Guide?
