Here’s what you need to start sewing:
- A reliable sewing machine (our favorite is the Babylock Brilliant)
- A cutting mat
- Rotary cutter
- Thread (we like Gutterman)
- Machine Needles (start with universal needles)
- Fabric (you can work with stretch or non-stretch, but keep in mind that different patterns require different types of fabrics)
And, of course, a high quality sewing pattern is a must for any beginner.
