Remember yesterday when I told you we came together as a team this year to accomplish an extensive set of gift guides for 2020? Well, today it’s all about stocking stuffers for sewists! That’s right, if you sew or you’re searching for a gift for someone who sews this is a great resource. We put our heads together and I think this gift guide is going to knock your socks off!
Let’s start with the team favorite!
1 – Washaway Wondertape
This stuff is the best. Jessica tried to get me to use it years ago and I refused. Then, I got a gift card and bought some and now I can’t live without it! It really is awesome stuff. The best thing is that you don’t have to buy the expensive stuff. Amazon has an off brand that works wonderfully at a great price! Find it HERE!
2 – Wonder Clips
These clips are pretty popular these days but I remember refusing to buy them. Don’t be like me, don’t be dumb like me, you need these, they’re amazing! Get your wonder clips HERE!
3 – Thread
If you’re going to sew you’re going to need thread… I mean, that’s pretty obvious. My favorite place to get thread is WAWAK! I can buy in bulk, the prices are low and the shipping is fast. Find your thread HERE.
4 – Heat Erase Pens
There’s not much to say… Sometimes you need mark your fabric. When those times come Heat Erase Pens are pretty cool. Get your pens HERE.
5 – Tailor’s Chalk
Some of us like markers and some of us like chalk. I’m a chalk gal! I love this chalk cartridge set. If you’re like me you can get your chalk HERE!
6 – Magnetic Pin Cushion
Everyone loves a good pin cushion and a team favorite is the magnetic kind! They’re super cool and I love mine. Unfortunately, earlier this year I had to buy a new one since, while shooting a video, I sat my iron on it and totally melted it. Happily, they’re pretty inexpensive and easy to find. You can find one HERE!
7 – Bone Folder
Yeah, this sounds weird but trust me, when you need to push out some crisp corners or even mark fabric, this will come in handy. Get one HERE.
8 – That Purple Thang
So, this is one of those weird things again. HA! Rachelle introduced me to this little tool. It can do similar things as a bone folder. Basically, it pushes, pulls and pokes. It’s a pretty cool tool. Get one for a stocking near you HERE.
9 – Knit Stay Tape
Knit Stay Tape a is a big fave of mine. I stumbled upon it while searching amazon once. It was a great impulse buy. I can lightly stabilize seams and helps a ton with hemming some of the pesky knit fabrics. Get some HERE.
10 – Hump Jumper
Ever had issues getting over a bulky seam? This little tool will really help you out! Get one HERE.
11 – Bobbin Holder
This is exactly what it says it is. It’s a thing that holds your bobbins. I need one, you need one. Get one or two or three HERE.
12 – Turn-it-All
This is a pretty useful tool that helps you turn tubes. It doesn’t sound like something you’ll need but you will. Get one HERE.
If we’re going to sew we need to be able to cut things. Here’s a small list of things that cut.
13 – Scissors
I love my Gingher Dressmaker Shears. They’re spring action style and they are the best. I recommend this brand time and time again. You won’t regret getting/giving these awesome scissors. Find them HERE.
14 – Thread Snips
Again, you can’t go wrong with Gingher. The little snips are so dang handy! I know you have other scissors but these little are perfect for threads and very small things. Get them HERE.
15 – Seam Ripper
This is one of Jessica’s favorite things. It would be a wonderful stocking stuffer for any sewist. Check out the site thoroughly because there’s some awesome things for people who don’t sew as well. Check it out HERE.
16 – Rotary Cutter
Jessica really digs her Olfa rotary cutter. It’s a nice weight, comfortable in the hand and cuts nicely. Check it out HERE.
17 – Cutting Mat
If you have a rotary cutter you definitely need a cutting mat. These come in all sizes and really are an awesome addition to any sewing table. You can find them HERE.
All crafting requires measuring. Here are some of our favorite measuring tools.
18 – Cloth Measuring Tape
You guessed it, this is a measuring tape made from cloth. HA! It’s pretty great. Find it HERE.
19 – Retractable Measuring Tape
This is one Tiffany’s favorite stocking stuffers. I don’t actually own one but I think I’ll get one. They’re super convenient and easy to store. Find one HERE.
20 – Hem Gauge
I love my hem gauge. I use it all the time. In fact, I use one so often that I’ve collected several of them. They are handy little tools and perfect for your stocking. Get one HERE.
21 – Quilting Rulers
You don’t have to be quilter to use quilters rulers. These work really well with the cutting mats and rotary cutters. I love mine and you’ll love them as well. Find some HERE.
Fun and Useful Extras
22 – LED Light Strip
These strips are great for lighting tight spaces like your sewing machines. It’s a pretty fun extra to have in your stocking. Get some HERE.
23 – Project Idea Notebook
Whether you use a planner or a cheap spiral notebook having somewhere to document your project ideas or sewing needs is pretty important. Check this one out!
24 – Pens
If you’re going to have a fun notebook, you might as well add some fun pens to go with it and slip them in the stocking too. Look at these fun pens.
25 – Pattern Weights
Pattern weights can be practical or they can be fun. I don’t know about you but I choose fun over practical all day long! LOOK AT THESE!
