Pins, clips, and pin cushion: Fine ballpoint pins or sewing clips are necessary for keeping your tricot fabric in place while sewing. A pin cushion provides a place to safely store your pins.
Scissors or Rotary Cutter: Since tricot is stretchy, sharp scissors or a rotary cutter are important for cutting clean lines.
Seam Ripper: LIke with any sewing project, a seam ripper is great for correcting mistakes while sewing tricot fabric.
Iron and Ironing Board: Keep your tricot fabric aligned and crisp while sewing with an iron. Keep it on a low heat to avoid damaging the fabric.
