Posted on: 24 October 2022

If you are just learning how to sew and you want to start working on some simple projects but do not know where to begin, you will want to continue reading. There are a lot of great things that you can make for yourself or as gifts for others, all while perfecting your sewing skills. To help get you started, check out the suggestions found below. Pick one or all of them and try your best!


You can easily make some reusable shopping or grocery bags by using a few straight seams. It's not a project that takes very long and you can easily find many few sewing patterns for this type of project. It is also a project that you can do multiples of and use different types and colors of fabric for each one. The more reusable shopping bags you make, the more you can help friends and family save the environment, all while you become more advanced with your sewing skills.

Kitchen Fabrics

There's kitchen curtains, pot holders, oven mitts, tea towels, tablecloths, and even dish rags. There are so many things that you can create for your kitchen. This will allow you to completely change up the theme in your kitchen without having to break the bank. All you need to do is to find some free templates or patterns online. This will give you the chance to not only work on your straight seams, but creating smooth corners and creating layered items. Make sure that you do not forget that the oven mitts and pot holders need to have a lot of heat-safe thick fabric in order to protect hands, countertops, and tables.

Personalized Gifts

If you want, you can make your own clothing or stuffed animals and dolls and give them away as gifts. Otherwise, you could purchase already made items that you can personalize by adding the recipient's name. If you want to personalize a teddy bear for a new baby, you might add their name and their birth date and it might become a very special keepsake for that child as he or she grows.

As you can start to see, there are a lot of good things you can create as someone that is new to sewing or who has just not yet gained a lot of confidence in their sewing skills. The sooner you get started, the sooner you can become a master.

The Power of Color

As a kid, I didn’t think much about the clothes I wore. I was only concerned with how comfortable they were. I often erroneously associated stylish clothing with pain. I didn’t think I could be comfortable in anything the latest runway models were wearing. Besides dressing in clothing that was too large for my body, I typically always chose black items to wear. I mistakenly believed wearing something black would make me look thinner regardless of the style or cut of a piece of clothing. Thankfully, in my adult years, I’ve learned to embrace color. Wearing my favorite colors always brightens my mood and gives me confidence. On this blog, I hope you will learn ways to add vivid, cheerful color to your wardrobe.
