I have put together here some ideas for free and easy sewing projects for beginners. A hand crafted gift can make an outstanding gift because of the thought and effort that has gone into it, but it need not cost much. Very often simple sewing projects can be made using scraps of fabric that you already have in stash so you can save a considerable amount of money while giving a high quality gift. The projects shown here range from household goods to wedding bits and pieces and now I am starting to add more baby sewing projects – since I became a grandmother!
Of course the ideas given here for easy sewing projects can be just as welcome in your own home or for yourself as they can for gifts. In fact, I have sometimes needed to make an extra one for myself after I have made one for a gift.
