Sewing Gift Guide

We're passionate about sewing and dressmaking at Sew Me Sunshine. Here's our gift guide for anyone who loves sewing and dressmaking.

To start with, if you aren't exactly sure what you wish to purchase for someone who loves sewing as much as we do at Sew Me Sunshine then why not give them the gift of choice by purchasing a Sew Me Sunshine gift card. This gift card has no expiry date and can be used against all products.

Stocking Fillers:

Dressmaking clothing labels are great gift idea, they range in price from £6.50-£8.00 a pack. They have great sewing related sayings on them, as well as non sewing specific sayings. They come in a variety of colours and sizes. 

Another great option is to buy some high quality sewing tools from Merchant and Mills, Clover, Hemline or Atelier Brunette. These are perfect gifts to anyone new to sewing or to someone that wants to up their sewing box game. We have so many options from dressmaking pins to chalks to sewing needles to magnetic pin dishes to sewing gauges and so much more. We also have some beautiful haberdashery too, including the gorgeous buttons from Pigeon Wishes.

Every sewist loves a new dressmaking pattern, perhaps you know that they love a specific designer or they are keen to try sewing a new type of garment. Well, we have you covered with our range of paper dressmaking patterns from independent designers from around the world.

If you aren't looking for something specific sewing related but are keen to buy them something that will make their sewing space smell amazing then we have the perfect gift. We teamed up with OHROS to produce our own soy candle called 'The Sewing Room'. This candle has a gorgeous fresh, herby scent containing tomato vine, cedar wood, basil and rosemary. 

We also have some sewing themed jewellery available. Lots of these have been reduced to clear too. We have wooden necklaces and fun sewing themed pin badges in stock. 

Luxury Gifts:

A gift that every sewist would love is a pair of new dressmaking shears or snips or a rotary cutter. We stock the high quality scissors, snips and rotary cutters from LDH. In 1990, LDH Scissors was founded in Shenzhen, just outside of Hong Kong, by a young couple who simply needed better quality sewing scissors. Fast forward to 2018, their son Roy and his wife Ursula have brought the company to Toronto, Canada. LDH Scissors is also proud to be immigrant-, female-, and family-owned!
