1. Gift Card
I love gift cards and you can’t go wrong in getting one. Getting a gift card to a seamstress’ favorite fabric store is a great idea. Then she can pick out whatever fabric or other sewing supplies she wants. My favorite stores for buying fabric are Hobby Lobby and Jo-Ann’s, I also like to buy fabric on Etsy. That’s where I buy jelly rolls and other fabric bundles.
2. Fancy Seam Ripper
A lot of seam rippers are just plain plastic ones. But, you can get fancier custom ones. You can find tons of handmade ones on Etsy in different colors. I love the one I bought, it’s a purple and gold and the way the colors swirl makes it look like clouds. One end has a seam ripper and the other has a awl.
3. Embroidery Scissors Kit
This would be the perfect sewing gift for Mother’s day. I love the antique look of the set. This set comes with a pair of embroidery scissors, a needle bottle, thimble, metal floss bobbin and awl. Embroidery scissors aren’t just great for embroidery, they’re great for sewing too. Yes, they’re not as good for fabric as fabric scissors, but they’re good for a lot of other things. Doesn’t this set look like it should be sitting in a Victorian sitting room.
4. Presser Foot Set
This is one of the best sewing gifts you can get. This would be great for any of the sewing skill levels, a sewing beginner or a experienced sewer. I know this maybe a little more expensive than some of the other gifts, but it’s worth it. Especially, if you’re wanting to start sewing all kinds of different things, and you’ll need to use different presser feet. Like to sew on zippers you’ll need a zipper foot, and a free-motion quilting foot for free motion quilting, and more.
5. Light Strip
Now this is a very useful tool. Because you always need a bright light for sewing and these are great because they go on the throat of your machine so you’ll have light right where you need it.
6. Sewing Tote Bag
These bags are perfect for carrying around small projects. Tote bags are a must-have if you’re going to be traveling and you want to bring along a hand sewing project or a embroidery project. And the smaller bag is a make-up bag, but it is also great for carrying embroidery floss.
And both the bags have cute little sayings and would be a great addition in your sewing room.
7. Bias Tape Maker
Here is another one of those sewing tools that you need to have in your sewing kit. If you’re making bias tape this is a time saver and a lot easier than trying to fold the fabric by hand.
8. Sewing Tags
Sewing tags would also be another great sewing gift. You can even get personalized tags on Etsy. There are so many different sizes and styles of tags that I didn’t link any special one. Sewing tags are great way to add a special touch to your sewing projects.
9. A Pretty Magnetic Needle Minder
Like the sewing tags and the custom seam rippers there are so many pretty unique ones you can get on Etsy. So, I didn’t link any specific needle minder. You can get kitty cat ones, puppy ones, flower ones, little sewing machine and thimble ones, and many, many more. Needle minders are great, they’re magnetic so they hold the needle. And they help you not to lose your needle. And these would make a great stocking stuffer for Christmas.
10. Rotary Cutter Set
This is the perfect gift for someone who has just started quilting. Using rotary cutters and acrylic rulers to cut your quilting fabric is the perfect way to get accurate cuts and to save time. This set is a great option because you get a rotary cutter and mat, replacement rotary blades, ruler, and clips. So, you don’t have to buy all this stuff separately.
11. Sewing Theme Coffee Mug
Coffee mugs are also a great gift idea for a seamstress who loves sewing and coffee. This is also one of the more useful gifts and there are so many different ones to choose from. So, you can pick whichever one that you think is the best choice.
12. Pin Cushion
Pin Cushions are something that every quilters needs. They help keep all your sewing pins together and unlike putting them in a metal tin you don’t poke your finger when you go to grab one. And there are a lot of different, unique ones on Amazon and Etsy to choose from. Some of them also come with a pack of straight pins.
13. Sewing Books
Sewing books would also be a great gift idea. You can get books that give you easy sewing projects. And you can get book that are full of one yard of fabric projects and even some with half yard projects.
14. Bobbin Spool Buddies
These are great for keeping your spools of thread and matching bobbins together. And they’re a time saver, because how many times have you had to hunt around for the matching bobbin to the thread spool you want to use for your projects.
15. Hot Hem Ruler
This ruler makes pressing hem so much easier, because sometimes it can be hard to press a hem straight by just using pins. And It’s a time saver too.
These are all great gift ideas and any of your sewing friends would be glad to get any one of them. All of these gifts would be a great addition to any craft room.
Thank you for reading this sewing gift guide. I hope that this post will help you pick up a great gift.
