Walking into a fabric shop is so inspiring and fun.  It is very easy to get carried away and lost with so many different choices, the challenge for so many students I have spoken to is, how to be creative on a budget?

The shops are full of lavish fabrics, it is the hidden little gems that we are really all after. For instance, small off cuts of fabric and trims from a fabric shop or old fabric pieces found in your great aunt's or grandmothers cupboard could be perfect.

Sewing tools

Items you need to begin sewing:

  • Sewing pins
  • Fabric Scissors (the best pair I have are the cheapest and lightest)
  • Tape measure
  • Clippers
  • Sewing Machine

(You can purchase a sewing machine second hand online.  We recommend you try a sewing lesson first).
