How To Build Your Own Sewing Kit In No Time

A sewing kit is just not a thing to use but a fundamental rule for the people who want to learn how to sew from home. Without sewing kit, you are not supposed to make one stitch in the fabric. If you are a beginner and you are looking for an ultimate guide about how to build sewing kit in no time then here we are to save your day.

It’s going to be one of the best decisions of your life when you will decide you have to learn sewing at home. To use the best first sewing machine, you need to have a complete kit. If you want to know about the different sewing machines as a beginner, then you can visit   Crafts Selection, as it will help you in learning about the different models suitable for your current requirement.

How To Build Your Own Sewing Kit In No Time

Let’s start step by step how to build your own sewing kit at home.

Seam Ripper:

As you will progress in sewing, you will come to know the importance of seam ripper. Sometimes scissor is going to be useless for you and you will use the seam ripper for the quick work. So in order to start building sewing kit, first add seam ripper in it. Use seam ripper which should be sharp and easy to use. There are many shapes and forms of this tool but at this stage, I recommend the basic and simple one.

With the help of a basic tool, you are going to learn how to use it and how you can cut things from it. It is recommended to use the seam ripper on the rough patch before using it on the project.

A Big Fabric Scissor and a Rotary Cutter:

At the time of cutting any kind of fabric, you definitely need a big fabric scissor with a sharp blade. Doesn’t matter what kind of fabric you are cutting, you will not be able to cut it with the help of small scissors. If your big fabric scissor is not working then you can use a rotary cutter as well. These both things should be in your sewing kit.

At the basic stage, you are required to add one piece only of each scissor and rotary cutter. This is going to make your kit almost complete in terms of the cutting session.

Straight Pins:

So basically when you are about to attempt your first sewing project, then you will get to know the importance of straight pins in your sewing kit. Every sewing project has the use of straight pins whether if it’s going to be small or big. These pins will be used at the time of sewing to hold the fabric pieces together and to make sure that you are sewing a straight and fine line.

At the time of using a sewing machine you have to use pins for the straight line and for the fine stitches. If you want to find the   best first sewing machine for beginners, you should read more sewing machine reviews online and follow sewing lessons as well. At we're working hard to provide you the most helpful guides on sewing machines or crafts products.

Straight pins are rustproof and made up of stainless steel. You can even bend them while sewing and they won’t break. It will make your work easier and faster. You should keep one packet of straight pins in your sewing kit for the ease of the work and to remove the crease during the sewing session.


There should be at least 3 kinds of needles in your sewing box. For thin clothing, for hand sewing, and for the thick fabric. These needles will help you in sewing any kind of fabric according to the nature of it and you don’t have to panic. Pick any three needle packets for your sewing kit and you will be good to go for the next project.

Sewing machine needles are an essential accessory in sewing kit

With the help of these needles, you will be able to sew anything by hand and there will be no running around the room. Keep 12 needles of each size in sewing kit and each needle’s lifespan is 8 hours so you need to change them after 8 hours.

Measuring Tape:

Without proper measurement, it won’t be possible for you to sew a dress or cut out any fabric. It’s essential to add measuring tape in your sewing kit to measure any cloth. The measuring must be 60inches in length and it’s an ideal measuring tool for the adjustments. For every single project, you need to measure the length, width, and other things. Even at the time of cutting you have to measure twice.

This is the rule of the cutting and sewing that you have to measure twice before making any move on your sewing machine. Even if you are using the best cover stitch machine, the measuring tape is a basic need of every seamstress/tailor.

Of course, without thread, it’s not possible for anyone to start sewing. Being at a basic stage you may not know about this fact that threads are of a different kind. Like if you are sewing something thick then you have to use a thick fabric but if you are using a normal cloth to stitch then you have to use a normal thread.

You must add different kinds of threads in your sewing kit and of course colors. I recommend a chalk as well for the marking and ease of the stitching. It would be good if you will have different colors of threads and always sew a dress with the same color of the thread as the fabric.


A sewing kit is kind of a basic thing for the seamstress and if they don’t have that kit, it means work will remain incomplete on the sewing station. You don’t have to buy the sewing kit from anywhere when you can simply make that in your home. Add all these basic things in your sewing kit and now you are ready to travel and you can sew small things even while on the road.

Ask yourself are you writing to please them or are you writing to please you?

I take suggestions and even work them into the storyline but ultimately it's my story and will follow my vision. I've had readers who expect it to go one way and I surprise them. They've come to look forward to the surprises and even said that it keeps them reading.

If I find a reader guessing too close to my plan for the plot I am inclined to change it, but I won't tell them that I did. It is ultimately my story.

You said it yourself, you draw for fun, your own amusement, do what you like, don't be a people pleaser or you'll end up drawing fetishes for internet degenerates

Write what you've already planned for him/her to do. Subverting expectations is all the rage anyway, and in your case it'll have been done the way it should be ;)

Does what you have in mind feel true to the character you've written?
also, trust your instincts as a writer.

Fully agreeing with the other folks here, especially Bravo (insightful as ever). If you create for other people and not yourself, your work will be shallow and you might be unhappy. Or you might enjoy fame and nice comments, idk, I don't know your life.

Besides, they're guessing on incomplete information, they might be just as happy to be surprised by your direction once the story starts to unfold. Remember that you have all the storytelling pieces like theme and worldbuilding - they don't! The character's direction will probably make sense in the grand scheme of things eventually.

Basically, don't please your readers. They're impossible to please if you're trying. Make things for yourself, and your audience will come.
