Basic Sewing Tools
There are some sewing tools that you can’t even
begin without. The correct sewing tool makes
any sewing project easier. Knowing which tool to
select and where to use it will simplify and
improve the outcome of each sewing step. The
sewing tools listed below are the basic tools of
the trade that help you save precious sewing
time. Compare the items listed below to those in
your sewing basket, and treat yourself to some of the ones that are missing. Also, look for
new sewing tools at the notions counter of your favorite sewing store every time you shop.
Ask for a demonstration if you’re not sure how a particular product works.When
purchasing sewing tools, select brand names for quality products that have clear
Disappearing Ink Pen
A non permanent ink pen, usually with blue
or violet ink, is used for transferring pattern
markings. The ink eventually disappears
(air-soluble) or is easily removed with water
(water-soluble). Check the ink on a scrap of
the fabric prior to using it on your projects.
Iron & Ironing Board
You cannot sew without these.While
sewing, keep your iron warmed to the wool
setting, and be prepared to press each
seam after you stitch it, depending on the
fabric’s ability to handle heat. Never stitch
across a seam that hasn’t been pressed. It’s
a sure way to make your project look
Sewing needles, both hand and machine,
are another must-have item. There are
many types of needles, and there are
separate guidelines that give in-depth
information on how to choose the correct
one for your sewing project. For the most
basic machine-sewing project, choose a
universal or ball-point needle for knit
fabrics, and a “sharp” for woven fabrics.
Choose the size of the needle based on the
weight of the fabric. For lightweight fabrics,
choose a finer needle (lower numbers); for
heavyweight fabrics, choose a thicker
needle (larger numbers).
Straight pins range in lengths from 1/2" to 1
7/8". Look for sharp, smooth, rustproof pins
that can bend without breaking. Use
different types for general sewing, quilting,
working with silks or knits.
Pincushions come in a variety of styles. The
most popular styles include the familiar red
tomato with an emery-filled strawberry,
which sharpens and cleans pins and
needles; a rectangular, wristband
pincushion mounted on a plastic wristband
that is perfect for pin-fitting and marking
hems; and magnetic “grabber” types that
make for easy plop-and-drop pin catching.
Also called a sewing gauge, this 6" ruler
with a sliding red marker has many uses.
Use it to mark hems, buttons and
buttonholes as well as design details, such
as pleats and tucks.
A curved metal cutting blade used to “rip”
stitches or “reverse sew.”One end of the
curved blade has a sharp point and the other has a
small plastic ball that prevents the ripper from slipping.
Use a seam ripper to remove stitches one at a time,
slash machine stitched buttonholes, and to pick out
loose threads caught in stitching.
Flexible fiberglass or fabric measuring tape that is ideal
for taking body measurements, measuring patterns and
layouts as well as general measuring. Fabric types tend
to stretch after prolonged use.
Made of metal, rubber, leather or plastic, this small,
protective cover slips over the index or middle finger.
When hand sewing or quilting, a thimble protects the
fingertip from pin pricks and is used to push the needle
through multiple layers of fabric.
