Default Newbie shopping list?

Hi everyone! I just joined yesterday and am verrrry eager to get started!! There are so many things I want to make! Anyone wanna help me with my shopping list? I don't want to forget anything!

Grosgrain ribbon (obviously) and lots of it
Buttons (to cover with fabric)
A few different kinds of hair clips to cuteify
E6000 glue (I do need this, right?)
Glue sticks (got the gun, can't find the sticks yet)
fray check (already have, just listing so you don't have to mention it )

I plan to do the ladybug clip (so cute), a corker, and a plain fabric covered button.... more after I do those of course.

Anyone have any suggestions I should add to my shopping list???

THANKS!

EDIT: I just remembered.... I need to buy dowels!

Don't forget the wood burner for cut 'n' seal, and clothespins to hold the ribbon on the dowels. Don't mess with "a few different kinds of hair clips" - once you get the rest, you'll want hair clips by the gross!! Thread, ribbon or elastic cord for tying. Oh yes, time. Lots of play time!!

And don't forget PATIENCE and a tylenol or two doesn't hurt

My first attempts took me hours and by the end my head was pounding. I was trying too hard.

You may also want to invest in a bottle of the stiffening stuff or hairspray. That is optional of course but I like my bows on the stiff side.

Welcome to the group! Don't forget a ruler, a metal ruler so you can use it with the wood burner so you can cut a straight or angle line with it.

Ribbon Sizes:

3/8: Making korkers, lining clips, making loopies
7/8: toddler-sized bows. Great for 3-4 inch bows.
1 1/2: larger bows.

I do use 5/8 and 1/8 on occasion, but the above 3 are the biggies.

I would think you can wait on E-6000. I don't use it too often.
