Easy sewing projects ideas for summertime

Is there a nicest way to spend your days than sewing?

I gathered the best free and easy tutorials to make summer sewing projects. I hope you will enjoy them and find inspiration, they are perfect for everyone, even if you are a beginner.

As I collected lots of ideas I divided the article into several sections.

You will find:

  • Tote and purses ideas
  • Sewing projects you can make for the kids
  • Easy ideas to make beach towels
  • Summer sewing projects for women
  • Pretty cushions tutorials that will give your home a summer vibe
  • Easy sewing project for the house.

Some projects require little fabric and are perfect to use your scrap fabric.

Some other ideas required more materials. I case you need to purchase fabrics, I also share a small selection of cute summer fabrics that you can order online.

Having a nice fabric on hand is the best motivation to start a new sewing project.

Cotton fabrics (perfect for clothing, tote bags, and hats)

Jersey Fabrics (great to make t-shirts, tops, skirts, kid’s clothes)

Waterproof fabrics (works great for home decor, pillows, outdoor projects, bags and upholstery)

I love the strawberries print! What is your favorite fabric?

naturally like your web site however you need to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth on the other hand I will surely come again again.

Hello Luna, thanks for your comment. As English is not my first language, I know that there are misspellings. I'm working on upgrading and improving the articles. I hope you will still enjoy crafting with me.
