5 Essential Sewing Tools to Make Your Projects Easier and More Efficient

Sewing can be a fun and rewarding hobby, but it can also be frustrating when things don’t go as smoothly as we’d like. Fortunately, there are some tools that can make sewing easier and more efficient. Here are five of them:

Seam Gauge: A Must-Have Tool for Accurate Sewing

A manual seam gauge is a small ruler that is used to measure seam allowances and hems. It is a handy tool that can save time and make your sewing more accurate. With a seam gauge, you don’t have to rely on eyeballing your seam allowances or trying to measure with a regular ruler. You can simply place the gauge against the fabric and mark your seam allowance or hemline.

Presser Foot Lifter: How to Sew Over Thick Fabric with Ease

If you’ve ever had to sew over a bulky seam or thick fabric, you know how frustrating it can be to try to keep the presser foot level. A presser foot lifter can help with this problem by allowing you to raise the presser foot to a higher position. This gives you more clearance and makes it easier to sew over thick or bulky areas.

Magnetic Seam Guide: Improve Your Sewing Precision

A magnetic seam guide is a small magnetic strip that attaches to your sewing machine and helps guide your fabric as you sew. It can be especially useful for sewing straight seams or keeping a consistent distance from the edge of the fabric. However, it’s important to be careful with magnetic items around computerized sewing machines, as they can interfere with the machine’s electronics.

Bias Binding Presser Foot Attachment: A Neat and Professional Finish

Bias binding is a great way to finish the edges of a garment or project, but it can be tricky to sew neatly and consistently. A bias binding presser foot attachment can make the process much easier by guiding the binding through the machine and folding it neatly as you sew.

In conclusion, these five tools can make sewing easier and more efficient. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced seamstress, these tools can help you achieve more professional-looking results and save you time and frustration. So why not give them a try and see how they can improve your sewing experience?

Walking Foot: Sew Multiple Layers of Fabric Like a Pro

A walking foot is a special presser foot that helps feed multiple layers of fabric evenly through the machine. It is especially useful for quilting or sewing with thick fabrics. With a walking foot, you don’t have to worry about the layers shifting or puckering as you sew.

HI. I'M MARGIE I love creating and creations of all kinds! I love Jesus, I love my family and I love to teach! That's what makes life exciting for me and that is why I have so much to share with you. I am founder and owner of SewingPatternSecrets LLC, based in Boston, MA. I am a writer and an avid sewist with a background in fine art and design from New England School of Art and Design, Boston. Sewing Patterns Secrets was conceived with my husband (my #1 supporter), inspired partly from my grandmother, but largely inspired by my mother, who passed in 2017. She supported many decades of my artistry, including, but not limited to, sewing. Whilst my mother was indeed, an important benefactor, my husband has unfailingly supported all of my endeavours and is the Director of Sales. As the Product and Project Director, I conceptualized, developed, produced, tested, and edited all of the 125+ curated sewing patterns, instructions and ebooks, using my decades of experience. I managed a team of fashion designers to help me with the 3D software and production. I and three other master seamstresses, vector artists, graphic designers, and one amazing fashion illustrator. Production took two solid years of detail and hard work and another six months of sales funnel creation. I give thanks to: Fer, Rima, Oksana, Debbie, Kathreen, Suanne, Elizabeth, Jacki, Bronwen, Kimberly, and the many others who contributed. As such, I am gifted with the ability to share with you my expertise and everything that I have learned along the way, as relates not only sewing, but to project and product creation and all areas of design: web, graphic, fashion, pattern and product creation. This would include 10s of software, marketing and SEO tools, affiliate marketing and so much more. All you have to do is ask! In addition to writing all of the ebooks for Sewing Pattern Secrets, I am also the main writer of this blog, but looking for other (Human) sewing bloggers who would like to partner with us. We welcome guest bloggers, vloggers, influencers and also an invitation to blog for you as well. We always want your advice and we also want to hear from you regarding ideas and improvements to our blog, product, or advertising. PLEASE COMMENT. Please do write me at support@sewingpatternsecrets.com.
