35 Easy Sewing project ideas for Summer time

30 easy sewing ideas for the summer

It’s getting close to summer time, even if we are all still locked at home, there will come a time when we will go out again. I don’t know when it will happen, but I’m sure that one way or another, we will soon be able to take advantage of the sun’s rays. Let’s stay positive!
We, therefore, take advantage of having a little free time to sew some nice projects in the forecast of sunny days.

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, some summer projects for women, pretty cushions tutorials that will give your home a summer vibe, and cute wall hangings.

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 on amazon. If you are like me, 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, top, 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?
