Sewing supplies

I love sewing costumes for dolls! There are so many variables in the sewing world so I won't talk about fabrics or threads. You can read a little bit about the fabrics in my article about costumes. The most common question I get is what sewing machine and needles for bead embroidery I use. But if you want to know more about certain sewing supplies, let me know, I'll try to add them here!

Sewing Machine

Even though I sew with hands quite a lot, especially small details, I can't imagine sewing without a sewing machine. I use pretty simple Singer Inspiration 4210. It does the job well and if you're sewing just dolls it'll be more than enough! Unfortunately, this model is discontinued so I find a few alternatives for you.
