I put together a very basic toolkit of essentials for anyone who wants to learn to sew without making a huge investment. It is true there are lots of fancy sewing notions out there that can help you along your way with your creations, but if you are just starting out and only want the "must-haves" this little gift set kit is the way to go.
Gift Set/Beginner Kit includes:
Fiskars 7" Beginner Scissors
Nifty Notions Tomato Pincushion (just like your grandma had...lol)
Dritz 75 Long Ball Point Pins
Ever Sewn Seam Gauge
Nifty Notions Seam Ripper (a necessary evil)
Dritz Tailor's Chalk Pencil with blue, white, yellow chalk inserts
