Sewing Tools

What do you need to get started sewing?

From a pattern:

  • sewing machine
  • thread
  • bobbins
  • marking tool (preferred: chalk)
  • needles (preferred: flower head - located in quilting section)
  • sharp scissors
  • measuring tape
  • iron
  • seam ripper
  • squirt bottle and cloth (for fusing interfacing)

For drafting:
  • pattern making paper (I get mine off Amazon)
  • rulers: yard stick, 12", 6", and curved (you don't NEED the curved, but trust me, it's great)

  • pinking shears
  • small scissors (for those tight spaces)
  • hemming guide
  • seam iron (small iron that makes it easier to iron small areas)

Tip: you can use flat head needles to hang pictures on the wall without leaving visible holes -- especially handy when you're renting!
