Make Sewing Fun, Easy and Simple!
Here you will find Sewing Recommendations to make Sewing for Beginners FUN, EASY and SIMPLE!
The easiest fabrics to learn sewing with are cotton fabrics because they have very little stretch to them; keeping your project looking like you want it. As you learn to sew, you’ll learn how to ‘handle’ different fabrics and will be able to start sewing with cotton blend fabrics, knits, and other specialty fabrics. For now, keep sewing simple and work with fabrics that have ‘stability’, cotton fabrics are a great choice!
I recommend investing in a QUALITY pair of Sewing Shears! The name brands I use are Gingher and Fiskars. I have been using Gingher Sewing Shears, same pair, for the last 20 years! You can see pictures of my scissors in my post Sewing Safety Tips.
Gingher and Fiskar scissors are indeed sharp! (If you’ve ever watched ‘Forged in Fire’ you’ll understand my attempt at a little humor- These scissors WILL cut!) 🙂
I definitely suggest having a pair of embroidery scissors by your sewing machine! These scissors have shorter blades and are perfect for trimming threads!
