When we got engaged (19 years ago), my grandmother gifted me a sewing machine (the one I am still using) and a pair of good fabric scissors.
Over the years, I purchased two other pairs of cheap scissors because the original pair dulled.
It took me all these years to realize that I could just get them sharpened.
A good clothing project all starts with how sharp your scissors are. Seriously important when cutting fabric.
It has also taken me this long to get a few good rulers! Actually, it was my friend Dawn who told me about these. She said they were a “must have”…and you know what? THEY ARE! How have I been sewing without them?
She has been teaching me what she knows about grading patterns, and with these tools, I am ready to learn.
What sewing tools do you find you can’t do without?
