Sewing Kits Should Contain These Basics:

  1. Scissors for fabric and inexpensive ones for paper. Optional:pinking shears,small embroidery scissors for snipping threads.
  2. White thread,black thread. Optional: any color your heart desires
  3. Pins and hand sewing needles as well as a spare needle or two for your sewing machine.Pin Cushion Good pins are probably 1 or 2 dollars more than bad ones. There are decorative headed pins that are easy to see and are longer.
  4. Ironing board. I use one of those small portable ones in my sewing room and I do just fine.
  5. Iron-I have an inexpensive iron and a pretty costly one. I prefer the cheaper one for my crafts. It's lighter and the steam won't cook an egg,but your fingers are another thing.Watch out
  6. Sewing Machine-the sky is the limit here but for a beginner buy a basic machine and if you can afford a few extra dollars get one that has extra fancy stitches, they can be fun.
  7. Chalk, marking pencils,invisible marking pencils(not always) all of these are great. Choose one of them at least to make sewing 100% easier.
  8. Rulers, yardsticks,tape measures. The tape you must have. The yardstick or ruler makes everything easier.
