What I really need someone to invent is a machine that will give me a few extra hours every week to let me do some more sewing! Or possibly, I just need to find a way of getting my kids to nap in the day and sleep better at night πŸ™‚


Cool beans! A bias tape maker would be the best thing right at this moment since I've recently discovered the pure joy in using homemade bt vs. store bought. Bliss might be more like it. What would be a great do-dad for Simplicity to make for me? How about an automatic laundry put-er-away-er. (Don't mind washing or folding…just putting it back where it belongs!)


Oh man, great giveaway. The only thing I'd really like simplified would be love. Why does it all have to be complicated?


I'd love a machine that handled all the paperwork decision-making for me, and then transferred all the relevant data to my brain each night!


Who'd have thought this little dandy machine even existed…trust simplicity!! Bias making is so time consuming…not to mention the iron singed fingers…..mmm so simple!

I would love a machine to simplify sewing from a pattern. I don't ask for much, just cut out the pattern, iron it, iron the fabric, pin the pattern, cut the fabric pieces….all I'd have to do is sew….bliss!!!!!

Great giveaway! Hope I win?!?!!


I'd love something that would automatically put something back where it came from as soon as I was done with it!


I just made 3 yards of bias tape, all the while thinking about how much I would LOVE a bias tape maker! This would make my life much simpler. That, and a laundry-folding robot too! πŸ™‚


Brand new follower here…and I don't ever win these things, but thought I'd give it another try because I could TOTALLY use this! What needs simplifying in my life. Something like the Roomba, only one that actually works, because I've tried the Roomba and it just doesn't work that well. If I could have clean floors all the time, I'd be a much happier woman!

wow I never knew such a thing existed!! cool beans!! I need deep cleaning to be simplified.. scrubbing bathrooms dusting the whole house… all of that fun stuff!

I WANT ONE OF THESE SOOOOO BAD. Simplify my life? How about an automatic kitchen cleaner. I feel like all I ever do is load and unload the dishwasher, and I can't keep the clutter from reappearing on the counters as soon as I clear it!

For now I'd just settle for an easy way to make my own bias tape, though πŸ˜€


I would love to have my work space simplified. I use my formal dinning room as "my studio". There is stuff everywhere, fabrics, samples, ribbon, etc.


I'd BADLY need some magical machine to cut fabric! I'm new to sewing and I make the most mistakes when cutting fabric. So frustrating! Even more frustrating: making bias tape. The machine would be really cool.


To simplify my life I could use a potty trainer. As in someone who will come potty train my daughter. Or a machine, whatever. Maybe a lightbulb over her head that will warn me that she's about to go. Or SOMETHING.
