So, you just got your first sewing machine and you’re ready to tackle your very first sewing project. Sewing is a great way to relax and reduce stress and anxiety. Sewing also gives you the opportunity to create your own clothing from start to finish. Finishing a sewing project can be very rewarding, but for a beginner, it is important to start with fabrics that are easy to work with. Materials like silk, denim, and rayon can be difficult to work with.

If you are just starting to venture into the world of sewing, here are some fabrics that work best for beginners:

  • Cotton– Made from soft, fluffy fibers this material is ideal for first projects. Cotton is also extremely durable and comes in a variety of weights and textures. When selecting your cotton fabric, be sure to get a material that isn’t too stretchy. The stretchier the material the more likely it is to slip and move while you are working with it.


  • Linen– Linen is one of the best fabrics to use when you are a beginner because it is fairly easy to guide through the sewing machine. Linen comes in a variety of weights but for beginners, it is best to use a lightweight fabric.


  • Wool- Although wool can be quite bulky, it is a great fabric for many different sewing projects. Wool is a great material to work with because it is very strong and holds its shape well. Wool also does not fray or unravel when you cut it.
