Stardew Valley is the simulation role-playing game that has been taking the world by storm since its release in 2016. Stardew Valley has a massive focus on individuality and in-game freedom which affords players customization options for their characters. With the 1.4 updates that came during the mid of the life cycle of the game clothing customization became a huge deal and Sewing came to the forefront as another activity with everyone wondering how to sew different clothes.
Sewing in Stardew Valley
As with reality, in Stardew Valley you require raw material to start making an object. In the case of Sewing, you will require cloth as your starting material. For this, you will require a rabbit or a sheep in your barn or coop. However, to get these two animals you will need to have either a deluxe barn or deluxe coop which are the max level upgrades for them both.
Robin, an NPC in the game will be able to help you out with building and upgrading your barn and coop. Since these are the max level upgrades it is but natural that players will take time and considerable resources to get to that level so you should have the patience for it.
Once you get the deluxe versions of your barn and coop, you can buy a rabbit or a sheep. Both produce wool in a certain timeframe. Rabbits produce wool every 4 days, randomly dropping wool around your coop. Sheep require shears which can be purchased from Marnie. They produce wool anywhere between 1-3 days depending on what their level of happiness is. Rabbits also occasionally drop a Rabbit’s foot along with wool.
Once you have the wool in your hand you will require a loom to convert it to the cloth. You can craft a loom once you reach the 7th farming level. To craft a loom you will need 60 wood, 30 fiber, and 1 pine tar.
How to use Sewing Machine
Once you are done making cloth you can exit the farmhouse and you will see that Emily appears. She will tell you that you can use the Sewing Machine in her house. After visiting her house you just have to simply interact with her sewing machine and you can provide a unit of cloth and one other item that is required to make the clothing item of your choice.
Having unlocked the sewing machine, you can even see that you will have unlocked the dye pots. This will allow you to customize your outfit any way you see fit. If you use a rainbow shard or shell a color slider will appear allowing you to color according to your needs.
Getting your own Sewing Machine
You can even get a sewing machine of your own. You can get it by completing a task given by Emily titled “Rock Rejuvenation”. After completing this quest Emily will send you your own personal sewing machine.
