Sewing accessories for beginners
Would you like to start sewing but have no idea what you need? We've put together a summary of the sewing accessories you should definitely procure yourself.
What do I need for what?
At the beginning, it is normally sufficient to have black thread for dark fabrics and white thread for light-coloured fabrics. It is best to use a polyester all-purpose thread. This is stable and versatile.
Cutting is incredibly easy with a good pair of scissors! Make sure the scissors are only ever used to cut fabric, otherwise they will quickly become blunt. To cut small threads, a thread snip is an ideal tool.
To sew your own clothes, you must know your exact body measurements. Using a rule, you can hardly take your waist measurement properly, that's why a tape measure is essential.
Sewing machine needles
For your sewing machine, you will need special needles. These are available in different thicknesses and types. To start with, you should procure yourself some universal needles that you can use to sew both thick and thin fabrics.
