The 5 Easiest Sewing Projects You'll Ever Make

 Are you a beginner sewer? If you're thinking of taking up sewing, 2022 could be the best year to start! 

In the past decade, "sewing" has actually gone through a bit of a renaissance. More people than ever are learning how to sew. 

It can be hard to know where to begin when you're starting out, especially if you want to sew your own clothes. 

As such, we've got you covered on this list with the most beginner-friendly sewing projects ever! We promise all these projects will be super easy for even the most novice sewer!

Why Take Up Sewing?

As mentioned above, sewing has become increasingly popular in recent years. 

Why is that? Partly it's because of the internet, which has given people new opportunities to learn about the craft. 

People are also starting to discover how easy sewing actually is.

5 Easy Sewing Projects That Anyone Can Do

Ready to get started? Grab yourself some fat quarters and start your projects!

A Tote Bag

You need a new bag, everyone needs a new bag, and you can make your new bag from a fat quarter! 

All it takes is a bit of fabric and some straight pins, and you've got yourself a new bag to carry! This is an especially great project for beginners since it's easy to get the hang of and doesn't require any major sewing skills. Pick up the supplies you need from; they have a great selection of modern fabrics perfect for most projects.

Reusable Menstrual Products

Stop spending money on plastic-filled, bleached, disposable sanitary products and instead get your sewing machine out!

To sew your reusable menstrual pads, all you need is some funky cotton for the outside, a waterproof fabric, an absorbent layer, and a top wicking layer. Sew together, add some poppers, and you've made yourself some reusable menstrual products that will make that time of the month a little bit more bearable.

A College Backpack

If you're in college and starting to spend a lot on books, why not make your books a little more comfortable! A backpack is an especially good project for beginners since it's simple and can be done in an evening.

A Patchwork Blanket

A blanket can be a great way to make use of your scraps, and using them for a quilt is an especially good idea for beginners. 

All you need are some fat quarters, a sewing machine or needle and thread, some white fabric, and some coordinating thread or fabric. You can have fun with the design too!

A Quilted Messenger Bag

Another wonderful project that is perfect for beginners is the quilted messenger bag! It's not overly difficult, but it's good practice for those who aren't yet used to sewing.

You will require an old pair of jeans, some interfacing, and some coordinating fabric. Cut two pieces out of the denim. The instructions are simple:

  • Sew together these two pieces to make a long strip. 

  • Sew this strip together at both ends to make a double rectangle with a seam down its middle. 

  • Transfer the pattern onto one of the rectangles

  • Cut around it out using the remaining denim piece as a guide.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
