Sewers - can you suggest any simple projects for a novice sewer?
I have a machine and know the basics - i.e. I can thread the machine and I can (usually) sew a straight line. Looking for ideas for simple projects that I could make as gifts for people.
How about potholders, pillowcases, aprons, and placemats. There is a hub I've seen here with free patterns for beginners and I have one with free apron patterns.
Hi Ellebee- I wrote a hub a while back that might be helpful for you... Not sure if they want us to link to hubs here but it's called 18 Easy Sewing Projects for Beginners- you could hop over and take a look. It's got some simple pillow cases, cute cell phone cases and things like that. You may not want to make anything there but it would maybe help give you some other ideas. Hope this helps!
I know this may seem crazy for some but for me it was quilting. My aunt is a seamtress and I always wanted to learn to sew but she refused to teach me because she says I am backwards because of my lefthandedness. So a few years ago my friend got into quilting and urged me to go to a class. Don't get me wrong quilting can get pretty complicated, however, sewing the patches together taught me how to sew a straigt line and turn and a few other things. I hope this helps!
Pillowcases are about the easiest thing you can make.
Also, curtains; a simple curtain is getting enough fabric to cover the length of the window + a couple inches (two or more of these fabrics--enough to cover the width of the window), fold the top over about 2" and sew a straight line to close the fold. Then, stick the rod into it, and wallah!
