Today’s National Sewing Month Project (a video lesson, actually) is brought to you by Angel Peterson from FleeceFun.
So you’ve picked out that new sewing machine with the help of Angel Peterson from FleeceFun.com, but you also need some sewing tools beyond the machine. Angel will help you determine the ultimate must-haves to stock in your sewing kit.. Learn about all these tools and why you need them in this easy sewing lesson. If you are just beginning sewing, watch this important video before you get started.
Here’s a quick list of basics you should start with in your sewing kit:
- Fabric shears – these are for FABRIC ONLY and make sure everyone in the house knows this!
- Flexible measuring tape – great for taking body measurements.
- Seam Gauge – you’ll be surprised at how handy this little tool is.
- Pins and Pincushion, hand sewing needle
- Seam Ripper – you WILL need it, trust us!
- Clear tape – especially important if you use printable sewing patterns.
- Rotary cutter – they’re fun and faster than tradtional shears.
- A variety of clear quilters rulers
- Self-Healing cutting mat
