My Sewing Kit

Before I left to live in Singapore my Mom gave me a basic sewing kit. She told me I might need it to repair stuff. I also have the habit of collecting tiny sewing kits from hotel rooms. When I decided to try quilting again I was hesitant to invest in new sewing items. After finishing a couple of trial quilting projects I eventually got inspired to embark on a challenge - Jet's Star Wars quilt blanket.

I survived quilting with the basic sewing kit. Aside from the fabric I just bought one white quilting thread, wadding, velcro and fabric scissors. I re-used an old plastic folder to create square templates and just borrowed my flatmate's cutting board.

Here are some basic items you need to quilt:

needle
regular thread
quilting thread
pins
wadding
scissor
ruler
cutter (if you're going to make templates)
fabric
pencil
pincushion
tape measure

Eventually I started to collect other items I needed:

bag handle
bag knick knacks
magnetic bag/wallet button
buttons
lace
fabric cutter
steel ruler (useful if you're going to use a fabric cutter)
