Sewing Kit Basics

photo (2)We love shopping as much as the next chick… We wanted to put together a fun little inventory of the basic sewing kit…

  • Buttons (You will want the basics as well as a few fancy-schmancy ones for those off the wall ideas.)
  • Needles (You will want a couple of your universal needles. You will also want to look into others such as microtex, overlock, stretch, topstitch and hemstitch.)
  • Threads (This needs no explanation… The bigger the variety, the better!)
  • Sewing scissors
  • Pins (1.25-1.5 inches seem to be the best)
  • Pin Cushion (The Diva says “Get colorful with this one! It is more fun!”)
  • A thimble (The Domestic doesn’t use one, but you might want to… The Diva only uses it in Monopoly)
  • A tape measure
  • Scraps of fabric to practice with (You can usually pick these up cheap or ask your sewing friends to donate to your cause!)
  • Seam ripper (not like any of us ever make mistakes!) ::wink wink::

We love to hear from you… Let us know what some other basics are that you find helpful in your sewing kit.

Let us know your thoughts...
