Tool of the week

Behold, my favourite gadget right now:

Any clues? Its footprint is barely bigger than my phone, making it compact and lightweight.

It unfolds to reveal a handy portable light! For a whopping outlay of $11.25 at Officeworks, it has thirty LEDs, three brightness levels and recharges via a USB cable.

While it won't compete with a dedicated craft lamp, it wins on portability and ease of use. Perfect to throw in your bag for sewing group.

I use it on its brightest setting, and it is certainly adequate for a short stint of stitching. Nifty, huh?!


  1. Nice one! How do you find the 'colour' of the light? Does it makes things look a bit funny or is it quite true?
    Definitely handy for a trip away or for the kids to use to read by (when one of the others is asleep).

  2. Thanks for the tip! I just might need one of these!?

  3. That's a great little find. And very cute stitching.

  4. I love my little light too! Bit I wish I had bought it in office works.....the patchwork shops are selling them for $30!!

  5. I was all set to purchase one but so far they are only sold in Australia. Boo hoo #!{

  6. Really nifty - Idea for a craft group get together.

  7. Wonderful little piece of kit! Chrissie x ps I've been blogging about your sewing machine cover pattern, I just finished mine last week!
