♡ Sewing Room Tour +✄Basic Beginner Sewing Needs ♡

Hi guys! Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. Today I’m going to show you my “Sewing Area”, because I’m planning on posting a lot of sewing tutorials.  Also I’m going to list out out all the basic tools you need if you are a beginner. ✄

So here is a complete shot of everything. I have a tiny corner beside my bed where I keep my sewing machine. 🙂

Here is a close-up of my sewing machine that I got for christmas 2013. It is a Brother XL-2600i, which is a great model for beginners.

On my sewing table ,I like to keep my scissors in this cute little kitten cup that I made using this video.

So on my window sill I have my cacti which i got from my tita and tito. They got them from Dangwa, Manila, but you can also get some in the plant stall in South Super Market Alabang.  I am sure you can find them in many other garden stores.  This is one of my favorite decorations in my room. 😉 ♡♡

If you’re wondering where I keep my other supplies. I have a shelf beside the table where I keep my fabric, needles, pins, ribbons, zippers, etc.

Now I’m going to show you basic supplies if you want to start sewing 🙂

1.  Fabric (you’re gonna need something to sew on!). Cotton Depot has a nice variety of fabrics.

2. Thread ( you’re going to need this to thread your machine)

3. Scissors -to cut your thread and fabric. Fabric scissors should only be used for fabric.

4. Pins -These are extremely helpful to keep your fabric in place while sewing.

5. Bobbins – You need this for threading the machine. ( Keep in mind that different machines have  different bobbins.)

6. Seam Ripper – if you make a mistake seam rippers can rip the stitches for you. (I promise this is a LIFESAVER!)

Okay a simple tip: If you are a beginner, use fabrics that are easy to sew with, for example cotton, felt etc.   Stretchy/ knit fabrics may be a pain to sew with 🙁

One last thing, I just want to show you the latest thing I’ve sewn for my mom’s birthday: A pen/pencil holder for her calligraphy pens! 🙂

Hope you like it Mom ! Happy Birthday!♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡IMG_8734
