My sewing groove, that is.
You’ll just have to read on to see……
I am frequently asked what my “must have” tools are. I figured this would be worthy of its very own post.
I know many of you are just getting started and I love that. And for this reason, you have many questions, which I also love. It just means that you are considering jumping on this great little bandwagon of crafting/sewing. It’s quite a rush…..there’s no turning back. ;)
So here, let me help you a little bit more:
Not SUPER fancy but a little above the basic machine. It works great for me.
Ooooh, something else I highly recommend is a thread caddy. Yes, its very own case. This keep all of that thread in its own space and keep it from unraveling and such. Mine looks like the inside plastic case, without the blue outer cover. I think it was a couple of dollars…..but very worth it.
And then of course thread and bobbins. (not pictured)
Also, it’s really handy to have pins and a pin cushion around. (Here’s a tutorial HERE.)
If you are cutting stuff out a lot, you might really enjoy a rotary cutter and mat. (Especially for quilt blocks.) It can save some time and keep your hands from getting callouses from the scissors. Yes, I have my fair share of callouses. Yuck.
Many of you know how much I love my Mod Podge. There are so many uses for it…..so go pick up a bottle.
I think that covers the basics. There are always other things to add to your collection and you don’t have to get it all at once. These are just some things that I find very useful and helpful.
Do you have birthday coming up? An anniversary? Why not add a couple of these to your wish list.
And then have fun making something new.
