Tailoring lets you create your own clothing. The crafting consist of two base items, the cloth made from wool and the spool. The spool could be anything from monster loot, fruits, vegetables, etc. Experimentation is highly advisable to discover a variety of items. Some of the recipes are available in the wiki.

To the right of the sewing machine you’ll find 6 dyeing bowls that will ask you to place a colored item each, it can be any item as long as the color matches the bowl. After placing the corresponding items you’ll get a dye that will let you change the color of your clothing.

To unlock it, you need to make wool in your farm and Emily will then visit you the next day telling you that you can now use her sewing machine in her house.

Tip: You can also change the look of footwear and still keep the stats it gives. To do this place the base model shoes/boots in the cloth slot, and place the other footwear that you want to keep the stats with in the spool slot.

My first game was Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation) back in 1996. And since then gaming has been my main hobby. I turned my passion for gaming into a job by starting my first geek blog in 2009. When I’m not working on the site, I play mostly on my PlayStation. But I also love outdoor activities and especially skiing.
