Happy Squirrel Quilts

Sewing Tip #22

Andrea Coyle

Use pipe cleaners and coffee stir sticks to create a DIY sewing machine duster! Cut a small length of pipe cleaner using your kitchen scissors (not your good sewing scissors!). Fold the pipe cleaner in half and insert the two ends into a coffee stir stick. You should have a small loop of fuzzy wire sticking out of the stick. Use this end to clean your machines, especially your bobbin! This quick and inexpensive project makes a great stocking stuffer for quilters!
