Style a Garment Project with the Right Accessory
As soon as I finish sewing a new garment, the first thing I ask is "what do I have to go with it"? The perfect scarf or bag can complete an outfit, and we all know the frustration of looking for just the right accessory and not being able to find it in the store. So we created an eBook with bag and scarf sewing patterns, yours for FREE!
Silk + Pearls Clutch
The perfect outfit needs the perfect accessory, and what could be better than sewing those accessories yourself to customize them to your outfit? Sewing accessories is easy and quick, making them the perfect small project to sew in an afternoon and wear out that night. They are also a great way to practice embellishment and handsewing techniques. And they make great gifts!
We have collected some of our favorite handbag sewing patterns and scarf patterns to get your creativity flowing. These free purse sewing patterns and scarf patterns each have a little twist to them to make them interesting to sew and stylish to wear. You probably already know how to sew a scarf, but making that scarf unique with machine embroidery and fabric manipulation takes it above your basic scarf. And adding sashiko stitching, patchwork, fabric flowers, or beading takes sewing purses to a whole new level.
