Beginner Sewing Projects to Make
Hey y’all, lately I’ve noticed a lot of people looking for beginner sewing projects, so I thought I’d put together a little round up of some easy sewing projects you can make when you’re learning to sew. Maybe you got a new machine to sew masks, and now you’re ready to tackle something else. Or maybe you’ve just been at home and you want to brush up on your sewing skills. Or maybe you know how to sew but you just want to do something easy as a palate cleanser. Whichever category you fall into, here are some projects for you! And bonus: all of these projects have a video tutorial showing you how to sew them.
5 Easy Things to Sew
First up is an envelope pillow cover. This easy sewing project only requires fabric and thread, no other notions. And it’s a great way to refresh your decor quickly! See how to make envelope pillow shams in this post.
Next, try a drawstring bag! You can make these in any size, and they’re kind of perfect for mask storage as well. You can put your dirty mask inside and tie the bag shut then toss the whole thing in the wash. See how to sew a drawstring bag here.
Ready to tackle clothing? These pajama shorts are quick to make out of beginner friendly quilting cotton, and they’re perfect for lounging around the house. See how to sew pajama shorts here.
Or maybe you want to sew for a baby? This easy criss-cross pinafore will help you practice sewing around curves. With only one pattern piece you can make this adorable and reversible baby dress. See how to sew the baby pinafore here.
Ready to add to your skills by tackling zippers? A zipper pouch is both a great way to use up scraps of fabric and practice a new sewing skill. See how easy it is to sew a zipper bag here.
