Sewing Supplies Needed
When my kids were just starting to learn to sew we kept a little plastic tub filled with the things they would need.
- plastic sewing needles
- metal sewing needles
- small scissors
- a seam remover
- a flexible tape measure
- a ruler
- a pincushion
- straight pins
- safety pins
- a thimble
- band-aids (we used these a lot – ha!)
You can obviously include whatever you already have on hand or whatever you think will work best for your child.
We also had a hardy supply of:
- cotton fabric
- fabric remnants
I found that felt was often the material of choice for us, because it was a bit more sturdy than regular cotton fabric. Felt, however, is difficult to cut, so be sure to help your children when they’re cutting out felt patterns or shapes.
Once you have everything gathered, it’s time to start creating your sewing masterpiece!
