Must Have Sewing Supply List

When I first started sewing I never thought much about the sewing supplies.  As a result my sewing was not efficient. Sewing supplies are extremely important to the success of any project and doing it in a timely manner. Luckily my mom gave me a sewing kit with all the necessary supplies, consequently speeding up my sewing time. The post walks through my “Must have Sewing Supply List” and includes a description and links!

Must Have Supply List: 1-5

Scissors (1): Use sewing scissors for fabric only because you want a clean, crisp cut! Have a second set of scissors around to cut other items. If you want your cuts to be clean, keep your sewing scissors clean and sharp.


Tailor Tape (2): A tailor’s tapes is a flexible measuring tape. It can easily and accurately measure parts of the body or garments.

Needle & thread (3): Use a needle and thread for hand seaming because most projects require some hands on resources.

Thread (4): All purpose polyester thread works best for beginners because it is multi-purpose. Polyester thread won’t shrink, stretch, or loose it’s color and works with all fabrics. Thread should typically match the project fabric and is necessary for handing sewing or on a sewing machine.

Pins & Pincushion (5 & 10): A pincushion is one way to secure sewing pins or needles. This small cushion holds pins and needles for safe keeping. Most pincushions also serve to sharpen needles and pins because of the special material inside the cushion.

Must Have Supply List: 6-10

Seam Ripper (6): This tool has a sharp, hook-like end and slides under the stitch to cut the thread. It is used to remove temporary stitches or stitches that are mistakes.

Tracing Wheel (7): The wheel transfers markings from patterns onto fabric, this sewing tool also makes slotted perforations and are used for placement.

Seam Gauge (8): The seam gauge is handy for quick (and short) measurements, but is specifically made for things like hem lengths.

Marking Utensil (9): A marking utensil is necessary to mark fabric. Disappearing Ink fabric pens work great. One side is water-soluble and the other is air soluble. Chalk is also a good utensil for marking fabric because it shows up well on dark fabric.

Pins & Pincushion (5 & 10): A pincushion is one way to secure sewing pins or needles. This small cushion holds pins and needles for safe keeping. Most pincushions also serve to sharpen needles and pins because of the special material inside the cushion.
