Sewing for Beginners Table of Contents
To celebrate National Sewing Month in September, we put together this great sewing resource for anyone learning to sew, anyone interested in learning how to sew and even those you who have been sewing for years. In Sewing for Beginners, you will find the essential materials needed for sewing, a guide to sewing needles and handy tips for caring for fabric. While our beginner’s guide does not have quite the depth of our sewing dictionary, we think it’s a good start.
Free sewing patterns are a great resource for those learning how to sew, especially easy patterns with uncomplicated stitches and minimal measuring. This sewing eBook includes 20 different sewing projects from super simple to intermediate, including pillows, clothing and bags. Because every sewer needs a pincushion or two, we start off this collection with three unique pincushion crafts. Pincushions are a great way to use up scrap fabric and add a little color to your sewing room.
The Editors of FaveCrafts
Bag Sewing Patterns
Bow Bag Sewing Tutorial (pg. 17) - You can never have enough bags, right? This is especially true with a free sewing pattern. Beccy from Wipster used scraps of upholstery fabric and an old pair of jeans to make this cute Bow Bag. The top has a drawstring so it can expand when you need it to, but draw it up for security (and cuteness).
Ribbon Stripe Bag (pg. 21) - Various colored ribbons and wood handles become a unique little bag, like this one perfect for Halloween. The project is quick and easy, as the bag and lining are made together.
Jewelry Pouch or Sachet (pg. 33) - Sew up a scalloped pouch in shiny lame fabric for keeping jewelry or holding potpourri or dried herbs as a sachet. Decorative thread creates a contrast on the pretty scalloped edge.
Pillow Sewing Patterns
Heating Pillow with Buckwheat (pg. 13) - Sew up an easy pillow filled with buckwheat to serve as a heating pad. Buckwheat holds the heat (or cold) better than rice or other grains and is hypoallergenic, since buckwheat is not actually a cereal or grass. Add a few drops of your favorite fragrance oil, or just enjoy the smell of buckwheat. You can also use this pillow as a wrist pillow when working with your computer mouse. This project comes to us from Jenya of MyEvaForeva. She has two Etsy shops at forEvaMore and EvaForeva
Recycled Sweater Throw Pillows (pg. 15) - This eco-crafting idea uses sweaters found at thrift stores or in the backs of closets to create cozy pillows. For the best results, look for sweaters with embellishments or great texture. This project comes to us compliments of Heidi Borchers for Inspired at Home.
Easy Felt Pillows (pg. 16) - Use felt squares to stitch easy pillows with flowers or personalized initials. This is a great easy sewing project for beginners.

Home Décor Sewing Patterns
Framed Monogram (pg. 52) - Abby Welker of A Feathered Nest shows us how to create a beautiful, framed monogram with felt and fabric. A bird embellishment tops of a simple sewn creation for truly creative decor. Make one for every member of the family!
Embellished Thread Bowl (pg. 54) - Using water-soluble stabilizer, you can create beautiful, translucent thread bowls and vases.
Phone Book Cover (pg. 55) - Sew a cute cover for a phone book or photo album featuring a house scene. This cover makes a great housewarming gift or accent for your own home. The batting or fusible fleece adds depth and hides the color of the phone book.
