Whether you are creating a craft supply kit for yourself, your kids, or for a friend, you will need the basic necessities to get yourself started. Whether you have a small budget or a large budget, we are here to help you start your craft supply kit.
Some of the obvious craft supplies can include scissors, thread, pincushions, fabric markers, and so much more. These can also be considered sewing notions. Regardless of how you classify them, they should be your first go-to for your sewing kit.
While there are other craft supplies you will want to invest in, no craft supply kit is complete without the perfect pair of craft pliers. Craft pliers come in handy for making jewelry and dealing with any type of wiring in a project. If you are in need of craft pliers, GoldStar Tool has you covered.
Leather crafting is a great way to express your creativity, and leather working kits also make excellent gifts. GoldStar Tool offers several kits to choose from in a range of prices.
The 7 piece leather craft stitching kit gives you the simple tools to work on small leather projects, including an awl, a thimble, needles, and waxed thread.
If you’re looking for something more, check out our 50-piece leather tool kit. It comes in a durable box and includes 20 stamping, stitching, scribing wheels, and wood burnishing tools.
Grommets are stylish and trendy. They are the perfect way to add a unique touch to any project, and GoldStar Tools offers several tools and grommet kits to get you started.
Grommet tool kits come with everything you need to apply grommets to projects like curtains, banners, purses, and shoes, whether it’s a project you’re starting from scratch or something you bought that you’re embellishing.
Our grommet kits include several styles of grommet tools, including pliers, punches, and self-piercing grommets, and they come in a wide range of colors and sizes.
Whether you’re using an industrial sewing machine or something a little smaller and more portable, GoldStar Tool has the presser feet that your machine needs to be more versatile.
Our 15-piece multi-function presser foot kit is a great place to start for home domestic sewing machines. These low-shank presser feet fit most home sewing machines, including popular brands like Singer, Juki, and Brother.
If you need presser feet for an industrial machine, we have a few presser foot kits available, including a deluxe spare parts kit that includes extra bobbins, needles, and handy sewing notions that you can never have too many of.
Presser feet are a must-have accessory to make the most out of your sewing machine, and at GoldStar Tool, we carry individual presser feet for every type of machine and use.
When it comes to sewing and crafting, having the right set of pliers is essential. GoldStar Tool carries pliers for every crafting need.
At GoldStar Tool, we carry several types of pliers, including grommet pliers and pliers for plastic snaps. Also, check out our leather holsters, which make it easy to keep track of your pliers when you’re working on projects.
Also known as long nose pliers or chain nose pliers, these are here to get into the small jump rings, shaping wires, and holding small items while you are working. They have small, tapered noses to get into those super small, awkward spaces. If you need to crimp a wire, small nose pliers are the supply for you!
These pliers will help you cut and bend wires with ease. They are used to make wired ornaments or jewelry/beading projects. They are extremely durable and can be used for light upholstery, signs, crafts, or in place of scissors when you need some extra strength to cut through.
If you are looking for the perfect pliers for your floral crafts, these are your item! They are ideal for cutting soft wires or pulling brad nails. If you want, you can also use these for your jewelry or beading projects. These are more of a medium-duty, they can cut through layers of papers, foams, or poster boards.
The next thing on your list should be a good pair of shears or scissors. These will help you get nice, clean edges on your fabric. You can skimp on these, but it is always best to invest in a good pair of scissors. These will make sure that your fabric doesn’t fray.
Paper scissors are also important. When making patterns, you will need to cut your paper properly. For these, you can get away with a less expensive pair of scissors as the paper is meant to cut easily and won’t fray.
Straight, glass head pins come in most sewing kits. They are necessary because they hold the fabric in place together so that stitching will be easy. You will want to invest in glass head pins so that if you are pressing over with an iron, they won’t melt on the fabric.
You will also need a pincushion. These will help keep all your pins in place so that you don’t lose your pins. You will also be able to easily find and grab your pins as you need them throughout your sewing process. If you want to make your own pincushion, check out our tutorial here!

Aside from the basics of needles and thread, you will also want to ensure that your craft sewing kit includes a seam ripper, tape measure, fabric marker or tailor’s chalk, and a flexible ruler. Point turners and seam gauges are other indispensable sewing tools.
Everyone makes mistakes when sewing; without a seam ripper, taking out your seams without ruining the fabric is impossible. With a seam ripper, you can quickly fix any mistakes, redo an old project, and make it new again. There’s a seam ripper for every job, from small seam rippers with extra fine blades to take out tiny stitches to deluxe seam rippers that are perfect for quilters. Seam rippers will get dull over the years, so our experts recommend getting a new one every 2-3 years.
Tape measures and rulers are simple and easy-to-find tools. They don’t have to be anything special, just long enough to take accurate measurements. Having a ruler flexible enough to bend around your forms is the only way to take proper measurements, though, so they are a must-have sewing essential.
Tailor’s chalk or fabric markers will help you mark the fabric so you know where to make cuts, incisions, and even straight hems. You will want to make sure that your fabric maker or tailor’s chalk can be removed easily without leaving actual marks on the fabric.
