Save money sewing by being selective on the items that you sew.  Avoid patterns that call for a lot of fabric.  Buy your patterns when they go on sale, and look for patterns that have multiple sizes and projects.  Keep leftover scraps of fabric, and use them for other projects.  Always buy fabric on sale.  Stock up on notions you use on a regular basis when they go on sale also.

Frugal footnotes:

Here are some additional frugal tips to save money sewing.

 

- If you are looking to upgrade your sewing machine, check craigslist and ebay.  Lots of dealers post their machines there at a substantial discount.  You can also buy used machines, but if you want an updated model, you may also find it there.
