Here’s today’s post:
We’ve all got that long list of sewing projects we’d like to make. Somehow my list keeps getting longer and longer. Every time I sew something and cross if off the list, I end up adding about 5 more projects to the list. That’s what happens when you subscribe to AllFreeSewing’s newsletter–too many good ideas and not enough time! Here’s what I’m crazy about at the moment:
I’m obsessed with throw pillows right now. I like that you can make a bunch of different ones and it doesn’t matter if they all match or not. Plus, they’re so quick to make! This Gathered Throw Pillow has a beautiful texture with a neutral color, which would look great for someone who has a lot of color going on in their living room already!
This bag is the perfect example of that “shabby chic” style that is so popular right now. And it looks like it would be easy enough for a beginner to tackle. Plus, I’m a sucker for fabric flower embellishments!
I wanted to make this last winter but I never got around to it. Fortunately (or unfortunately…) it’ll be cold again soon, so I can make it this year! Again with the flower embellishments.
Pretty much every dress I’ve ever made has been a variation of this one–a pre-made shirt attached to an elastic waistband skirt. I speak from experience when I say that this is a great beginner project. It’s still on my list of things to make because I want to make another one!
I don’t have any kids, but if I did I’d make this shirt pronto. I can’t even choose a favorite part–I love the ruffles, the colors, and the fact that it was made from recycled t-shirts. Oh, and I also love that it was inspired by popsicles!
So those are my favorite patterns and sewing project ideas on AllFreeSewing.com. What are your favorites? What’s currently on your list of things to sew?
