Sewing Tools
Sewing is the craft of fastening or attaching objects using stitches
made with a needle and thread. Sewing is one of the oldest of the
textile arts, arising in the Paleolithic era.

Sewing Equipment
Sewing equipment and tools are needed for sewing which aid
in construction of garments of good quality and appearance.
The equipment or tools are broadly categorized into
measuring, marking, cutting, general tools, and pressing
tools. A box with compartments is necessary to arrange these
tools in one place
Measuring Tools
A measuring instrument is a
device for measuring a
physical quantity.

Measuring Tools
1. Tape measure-A tape measure or measuring
tape is a flexible ruler and used to measure distance. It consists of a
ribbon of cloth, plastic, fibre glass, or metal strip with linear-
measurement markings. It is a common measuring tool.

2.ruler-A ruler, sometimes called a rule or line gauge, is a

device used in geometry and technical drawing, as well as the
engineering and construction industries, to measure or draw straight

3.Measuring stick- measuring instrument

having a sequence of marks at regular intervals; used as a reference in
making measurements.
4.Lsquare-“L” Square The “L” square is one of the most basic of
the pattern making rulers. This ruler helps to create accurate 90° angles and
straight edges. It measures, rules, and squares simultaneously.

5.Standard French Curve- a flat drafting

instrument, usually consisting of a sheet of clear plastic, the edges of which are
cut into several scroll-like curves enabling a draftsperson to draw lines of
varying curvature

6.Sewing Gauge- A sewing gauge is a ruler,

typically 6 inches long, used for measuring short spaces. It is typically
a metal scale, marked in both inches and centimeters with a sliding
pointer, similar in use to a caliper.
10 Sewing Tools That Belong in
Your First Box
1. Fabric Scissors-It's super important to have
sharp scissors, and that you only use them on fabric. Cutting
through other surfaces (even paper!) dulls the blade,
translating to tons of frustration when you sit down to sew.

2. Tailor's Chalk-Use this to transfer pattern

markings onto their corresponding fabric pieces, especially if
you're working with dark fabric. Pro tip: when you don't need
the marks anymore, simply brush 'em off with a second piece
of fabric.
3.Seam Reaper-seam ripper gets the job done
quickly whether you've made a mistake or are
revamping an existing piece

4.Measuring Tape-it's perfect for measuring fabric

width and items that are longer than your sewing gauge or
clear ruler.

5. Water-Soluble Fabric Marker-Fabric markers are

used the same as tailor's chalk, but the blue (or sometimes purple)
color creates crisp, fine lines on light or white fabrics.
6.Seam Gauge-This little ruler is great for
creating perfectly even hems and taking small
measurements. The plastic arrow slider moves the
length of the ruler — simply set it to your desired
measurement and you can quickly mark a set length in
multiple areas.

7.Hand-Sewing Needles-These little guys are great

when you're basting, mending, sewing on buttons or hand
sewing an invisible seam . Grab a variety of sizes: you'll need
'em to work with different weights of fabric.
8.Thread-a long, thin strand of cotton, nylon, or
other fibers used in sewing or weaving

9.Pins-Use pins to hold multiple layers of fabric together

until they are sewn. The length and type are up to you: some are thin
and meant for fine fabric, while others are longer for use in quilting

10.Pin Cussion-A pincushion (or pin cushion) is a small,

stuffed cushion, typically 3–5 cm (1.2–2.0 in) across, which is used in
sewing to store pins or needles with their heads protruding to take
hold of them easily, collect them, and keep them organized.
