It helped that Tesco was selling this fab pack of sharpies for just £7 - about 1/3 of the usual price!
I've had a few bits and pieces in the sewing room that have broken. Husband has passed on some Sugru stuff (see here for other inspiration). It's like BluTak, but sets into a permanent but rubbery shape, and is great for fixing or creating!
I fixed a broken embroidery hoop, and broken scissor grip, and I used some more to put ends onto my felting needles, and to make a chunky handle for a crochet hook!
My Rainbow Hexie project has stalled a bit
But some of the hexies that hadn't made the cut were bugging me. They were in shades of turquoise and teal and looked lovely together, but didn't belong in the quilt. At Ikea I picked up some hessian/jute/burlap fabric and added it to a band of hexies I had joined together. I added a lining of hessian but it wasn't very stable, so I added craft/pelmet vilene inside. I then hand quilted it to stop the whole lot shifting around too much
I'm not quite sure what it will be used for - but it's pretty, and it used up unwanted fabric!
