Hello ladies! I’m here to tell y’all that you don’t have to be a professional sewer or DIY master to make something functional and pretty. If you’re looking to hop into the sewing game or want to dip your toes in, here are some sewing projects to try out as a beginner.
Add some pizzazz to your living room or bedroom with a throw pillow you made yourself! All you need is your favorite fabric and a pillow or cotton to put inside.
Instead of buying your child’s first purse, why not make it? You can use felt or fabric to sew the bag and add jewels, plastic wiggly eyes, or anything you think your child will love! They can carry as much or as little as they want and brag to their friends about how their awesome mom made it for them.
Gift Card Holder
People appreciate handmade gifts because they’re more thoughtful than running to the store and grabbing a gift card. But if you insert the gift card into a handmade gift card holder, it technically counts as a handmade gift!
Handmaking a dish towel is possibly the easiest sewing project you could do as a beginning sewer! Heck, y’all can grab a piece of fabric, cut it up into towel-size and call it a day!
Need somewhere to put your travel makeup or pens? No problem! Sewing a zip pouch is perfect for beginners because it can be super easy to make. But remember, just because it has a zipper doesn’t make it difficult. Lay the zipper on the fabric and sew along the line!
Try matching your face mask with a headband! Make it fall/winter-themed to add to your outfits this year! With your beautiful headband, you’ll be pulling your hair back in style.
By now, everyone needs a face mask, and I think we’re over the bland, blue surgical masks. Spice up your facial protection by grabbing some fabric, needles, and elastic and hand sewing a mask to make your friends jealous! Just be careful not to run into the most common problems when sewing elastic.
These sewing projects to try out as a beginner are a great way to learn the basics of sewing and DIY projects. Your friends will love your handmade gifts, and, needle-less to say, you’ll have a blast sewing them!
