4 Free Easy Sewing Patterns for Beginners

Sep 7, 2012

In putting together the Sew Daily  eBook: 4 Free Sewing Patterns: Easy Sewing Projects for Beginners and All Sewists, we wanted to create a collection of projects that are simple  for beginners to take on and complete, while also being so cute that  you will want to make them no matter what your sewing level is. I think that you will love the darling projects we have hand-picked from recent issues of Stitch:

Springtime Bibs
by Heidi Boyd
Pretty Petals Clutch
by Rebekah Lambert
Eye Pillow
by Mary Walter 
Snack Bags
by Rosemarie DeBoer

The garden-inspired Springtime Bibs project by Heidi Boyd is almost too pretty for dinnertime. Made with organic terry for an absorbent backing and an easy-on-and-off Velcro closure, these bibs will make even the most challenging meals with wiggly toddlers a pleasure. Embellished with a colorful carrot and strawberry and finished with bias tape, these bibs look much harder to make than they are. This is a great impress-your-friends-and-family project.

The Pretty Petals Clutch by Rebeka Lambert is a unique bag made from your favorite stash scraps. Featuring fused appliquéd petals and a handful of sewn-on buttons, this small clutch's bright embellishments make a big impression without eating up a big chunk of your sewing time.

For resting your peepers, the Lavender-Infused Eye Pillow by Mary Walter couldn't be easier to make. It's basically a rectangle of pretty fabric filled with soothing lavender and flaxseed. Just take  an hour to make it  and you have  the perfect accessory for a calming afternoon  .. or the perfect gift for someone you love.

Go green with the re-usable Snack Bags by Rosemarie DeBoer. The clever carriers for kids and adults alike are lined with waterproof fabric and decorated with your choice of happy fabric on the outside. It's a quick way to feel good about your munchies.

I just love the variety in the Easy Sewing Projects for Beginners and All Sewists eBook. Download your copy and pamper yourself (or someone on your gift list) with these stylish yet practical projects.

Happy stitching!
