Whether you’re treating yourself or buying gifts for a savvy sewer who is very dear to your heart, there are a few sewing accessories that you simply cannot do without regardless of what your next sewing project may be. The good news is that these must-have sewing accessories make excellent Christmas gifts, too!

1.Seam Ripper 

While most beginner sewing kits come with a seam ripper, they are very rarely good quality. If you want to make your sewing project easier, it is often better to invest in a much nicer one. Look for a seam ripper that allows for a good, comfortable grip and that is very sharp.

2.Steam Press 

Sewing is impossible if fabrics are creased. Hence, the need for a high-quality steam press. Ideal for before and after finishing touches!

3.Glass Head Pins 

Most sewers use plastic head pins by default – but glass head pins really make all the difference. Not only do they glide into fabrics a lot smoother, they also won’t melt from the heat of an iron or steam press and are also immune to rust.

4.Dressmaker’s Sheers

Yes, you can use ordinary scissors for sewing equipment when working on your sewing project. However, investing in a pair of sharp dressmaker’s scissors will make your job endlessly easier.

5.Rotary Mat and Cutter 

A rotary cutter makes it easier to cut through multiple layers of fabric and is simple to use once you get the hang of it.
