Free Sewing Projects for the Absolute Beginner

I recently started to learn how to sew. I’ve done very (VERY) simple alterations to cloths, and practiced using the sewing machine some.

Sewing projects for the absolute beginner is a list of sewing projects and tutorials for those that know little to nothing about sewing, and need to start

 

I really want to start completing projects, I dream to finish dresses, skirts, purses, baby clothes, you name it! (just not yet *sight*)

But everything seems SO complicated for me, everything looks difficult and even intimidating for an inexperienced sewer like me. So, I’m climbing down from my dream cloud for a minute, and started to look for little sewing projects and tutorials that seem easy enough for someone like me that has a very limited knowledge about sewing.

I wanted to share the projects that I found with everyone, since I’m sure that out there can be someone just as terrified as me to jump to the complex sewing projects. For all the beginner sewers, this list is for us!

Is also a great way to save some money on fabric, all these projects require a small amount of fabric, and when you’re just starting learning, could be a good idea not to spend so much in something that might not be perfect. I know some people do great even the first time, but I’m still making so many mistakes, that prefer to keep it simple until my sewing skills develop some more.

This will also be my “to do” list, I plan to follow each tutorial. So, wish me luck.. I hope to be able make them all (eventually, hehe)

  1. Yes, I too have had to climb off my dream cloud (and keep my credit card away from the fabric websites and quilt stores!), so thanks for this.

  2. Thank you for this. I too am a sewing dreamer. I crochet and I have always wanted to expand on my sewing. I have sewn over the years but I have never been able to master my sewing machine. I love being able to grab the .97 fat quarters from walmart for small projects to help with my sewing. I have a hard time sewing a straight line but I’m hoping with more practice I will be able to sew more.

    1. I crochet as well, and I can make a thing or two with my sewing machine, but I’m not a seamstress. I know I am not the only one wanting to expand, and that’s what inpired this post.
      I’m so glad it helped you!!
      Best wishes!!
