Here is my Sewing Essentials List! This list is assuming you already have a sewing machine and an ironing board and iron (since most people have these). This video is for you if you have a sewing machine and want to learn to sew, or just got a machine and aren’t sure what to do next! These are the basics that I suggest a beginner invest in right up front, but the list isn’t too long so that it won’t break the bank!
Comment below on your sewing essentials!
Here is my video on sewing machines if you are curious about my thoughts on machines and features I love plus some FAQ’s
Review of my current machine – Juki TL 2010Q
Where you can get the Juki
Fiskars Rotary Cutting Set (Includes Mat, Rotary Cutter and Ruler) GREAT PRICE!
Pins and Pincushion (I like the glass heads because you can iron on them)
Clover Wonder Clips
Aurifil Thread (I like Aurifil, but you can use a basic thread from a local craft store to get started)
My Thread Collection Video (Lots of good info on thread and different types and brands)
Schmetz Assorted Needle Pack
Marking Tools (There are lots of options, but I recommend a water soluble pen to start)
Lastly, when you are first starting out, I recommend getting only the materials you need for each specific project. That way in can spread out the costs over time. For example, if you want to make a zipper pouch, get your zipper, fabric, coordinating thread and interfacing. Once you complete that project, purchase the materials for your next one.
