Pillow Project Tools

When creating your own pillows, whether you’re a beginner or an expert, here’s a list of some basic tools needed for your pillow sewing project.

  • Craft Scissors – to cut paper, paper, templates
  • Sewing Scissors – to cut fabric, thread (invest in a quality, sharp scissor)
  • Pins – metal pins to hold things in place
  • Sewing Needles – sewing machine needles or hand-sewing needles (there is a difference)
  • Sewing Machine – this is optional, but can save you a tremendous amount of time and effort
  • Pencil, tailors chalk – to mark and indicate things
  • Seam ripper – to undo any errors and make fixes
  • Thread – this is relatively cheap so buy many colors and get plenty so you don’t run out

This isn’t an exhaustive list, but it’s a good start.  If there are any items that will make your task easier, invest in it.  Make sure you purchase items that are of quality as a craftsman (or woman) is only as good as their tools.
