On the left is the 2 pack from Harbor Freight, 2 blades for $1.49. On the right is the 5 pack from Joanns, 5 blades for $31.99. The blades seem the same and are virtually the exact same size - 45mm. You can see the Joanns blades have those 3 little notches in the center, but it doesn't seem to make a difference in my Olfa cutter that the cheaper blades don't have them. I can't wait to cut some serious fabric to see if they last as long as the more expensive ones do!
The other thing I found last week that I was super excited about were ..... quilting gloves in the dollar spot at Target! Ok, so technically they're "gardening gloves" but I've always used gloves with the grippy stuff on them for free motion quilting and have been looking for a new pair for a few months. Unfortunately, gardening stuff hasn't been in the stores until just recently and I just spotted these perfect ones at Target. These are perfect, tight fitting and the grippy stuff on the fingers and palms. And hello, one dollar!
