How to Start Sewing Checklist

Updated May 04, 2022

If you have a lot of experience sewing, the first steps for a project are second nature to you. You probably know when and how to pin a pattern without even checking in. Experienced sewists know if they are the type to wash their fabric and know exactly when they should measure (several times) a pattern before cutting into the fabric.

Sewists who are learning how to sew, however, do not have all of these steps in their head along the way. That’s why we have borrowed this How to Start Sewing Checklist from Seams and Scissors for our readers. If you want to know how to sew and how to start sewing, save this free sewing printable and keep it handy for your first few projects.
