18 Easy Sewing Projects for Beginners

Updated on April 11, 2016

I recently bought a used sewing machine and I'm super excited about trying it out. I was originally researching some easy sewing projects for myself but when I saw how many were out there I wanted to do a round-up and share some of the tutorials I found.

I found everything from pillows, to tote bags, stuffed animals and dolls, and even a really cute tooth fairy pillow. I am sure there are some ladies out there, like myself, that would appreciate some easy sewing projects.

Get those machines out, girls . . . we can do this! A big thank you to everyone who shared all of these gorgeous tutorials. These are for personal use only, please.

Let's get going!

1. Pillow Cases

Pretty Pillowcases

I found this tutorial for a regular pillowcase at Made. Look at the bright, beautiful pillowcases made with this pattern.

A pillowcase is super simple and shouldn't be too hard for a beginner. I think it would be fun to go and pick out fabrics for these pretty pillows.

2. A Nice Scarf

At The Cottage Home there is a very nice photo illustrated tutorial on how to make this beautiful scarf.

It is detailed and very easy to understand. You can't have too many scarves. I would love to make many of these.

3. Easy Drawstring Bag

Go to BurdaStyle and click on the instructions tab to see the tutorial on how to make these cute and easy to sew drawstring bags.

Just think of all of the fun prints you can find at the fabric store. I'm excited to give this one a try for sure.

4. Reversible Headband

Look at these cute reversible headbands I found at The Long Thread along with the free tutorial. These are super cute!

They look easy enough to do. . . might take some trial and error but I think we can do this one, girls.

5. Lavender Sachets / Small Pillows

There are no words to measure the amount of cuteness at this website! Go to Bugs and Fishes to learn how to sew these lavender sachets. I absolutely love these. They are so adorable.

A thought crossed my mind that wouldn't these be cute somehow made into a tooth fairy pillow or even just small stuffed pillows.

This tutorial is nicely illustrated along with great photos. Be sure to check out some of the other stuff at the site . . . it's amazing!

6. Simple Card Wallet

Learn how to make one of these simple card wallets at Trillium and Design. This a super easy project complete with illustrative photos.

Wouldn't it be cute to make one of these and then add those flat back gemstones to embellish it?

7. A Bapron

Baby Bib/Apron

Introducing the Bapron! (baby apron) from Sew What's New! Isn't it cute? I love this . . . it's super easy to sew and it would really make a nice gift for a new mother or it would make a nice project for all of you proud grandmas out there.

Under the photo, you will see a link where you can download the PDF pattern and then another link for the tutorial.

8. Cute Monster

Gotta love this cute stuffed monster from RevoluzZzion. This cutie is very easy to make. The tutorial has tons of photos and it's very easy to understand.

I love the colors on this one. The blue patterns with red heart, eyes and mouth looks really cute all together.

9. Darling Stuffed Owls

Stuffed Owls

Owls are so popular these days. I found these cute stuffed owls over at googiemomma along with wonderful pictures and an easy to follow tutorial.

If you are an owl lover or know someone who is, one of these cuties would be a nice addition to someone's collection.

10. Ruffled T-Shirt Pillow

Ruffle Pillow

I love this pillow I found at Floralshowers. Can you believe it's actually made from a t-shirt? Not kidding! I could hardly believe it myself.

This is another easy to follow tutorial complete with great photos. Got any old t-Shirts lying around?


11. Babushka Plushie

Felt Babushka Plushie

I love this cute little Russian doll, more appropriately called a Matryoshkas. I love the small bead details on it.

Go to Cut Out and Keep to see the tutorial on how to make this little cutie. Talk about easy! Sewing the beads on would probably take a little patience but it would be well worth it.


12. Mini Duffle Bag

Mini Duffle Bag

At Innovative Sewing I found this tutorial how to make this small duffel bag. I wasn't sure if it was ideal for beginners or not but it does say it's easy to make.

Isn't it cute? I think this one would look nice embellished with those flat back crystals as well. I've got an obsession with them lately.

13. Easy Breezy Apron

Easy Breezy Apron

This is probably the easiest tutorial out there. It's a very simple apron and I think it's darling! My Half of the Brain via Craftster has the tutorial.

It's just bias tape and a bandana. Actually it just says pin the bias tape to the bandana and sew—and voila! You have an apron.

14. Easy Tote Bag

Easy Tote Bag

I love these super cute book bags found at Needle and Spatula. Think about all the colors and prints you can choose to make these.

These are super easy to make. This one may be my very first sewing project on my new machine.

15. Embellished Tea Towel

Tea Towel

Aww . . . I love these embellished tea towels at Fave Crafts. This one is obviously a very easy one to sew. I love the little yo-yo embellishment too.

16. Easy Fringe Fleece Scarf

Look at this nice fringe fleece scarf I found at Make and Takes. I bet you could whip up a few of these in no time. This one looks like maybe it's made in school colors.

17. Tooth Fairy Pillow

Tooth Fairy Pillow
Tooth Fairy Pillow | Source

I couldn't leave off an easy to sew tooth fairy pillow. This one I found at Gen X Quilters. My son is 3 almost 4 so it won't be long until he is losing teeth.

I'm so glad I found this. Of course, you can personalize it to be for a girl or a boy . . . you can add your own cute little embellishments too.

18. Cell Phone / iPod Cover

iPod/Mobile Phone Cover

Two words: SUPER CUTE! Look at these cell phone / iPod covers I found at SarasTextureCrafts complete with tutorial. These are made from socks . . . talk about easy!

        My sister is always sewing sewing...from quilts to toys to pillowcases. She has made pillowcases and quilts for me that I adore. I adore most the ones that have a colorful strip sewn to the open end of the pillow cases. Thank you for sharing all of these great suggestions...I am just learning to sew and will surely give them a try. Angels are on the way to you this evening ps

        Hi. Your ideas have one thing in common - they're all cheerful and bright. (Very much needed these days) I have a state of the art machine; well, for a beginner it's state of the art. A Singer 160th anniversary model. I just completed a self binding baby blanket for my grandson, expected any day. Which leads to my question:

        Would you mind doing a tutorial on easy to sew baby clothes ?

        Oh, and thanks bunches for the owls !

        Great hub for beginners like me. I love how you referred us to so many other websites for the instructions. I'm thinking of making ruffles like the ones you did in the pillow cases, but using them on some bathroom rugs that I'm making. Looking forward to browsing over more hubs from you.

        awesome hub!

        I received my first sewing machine as a birthday gift last year. I haven't played around with it as much as I wanted to due to lack of time.. but I have created a few little projects.. I've made a few reversable tote bags, some PJ bottoms for my little brother.. And for Christmas I made about 10 microwave bags to give out as gifts. I added an extra pocket in the front and lined them with flannel, so you can use them to warm your toes up.. Super easy.. Sew a square, fill it with rice, slap a pocket on the front. Everyone loved them. :)

        I hope to one day learn to make a quilt. I have all kinds of old t-shirts that I would love to turn into a t-shirt quilt.. now to find the time to do it. :)

        Great hub! I'm definitely going to try a few of these out. I especially like the scarf!

        Cheers!

        I have a 6 year old son who LOVES helping me on my sewing projects.

        I found you from a search on ideas for him and my pre-teen daughter.

        Here is the project we landed on for Christmas gifts this year. This was one of the fastest and easiest projects ever (even my 6 year old could do this)...best part is its functionality. I just had to share it with you! Now that the holidays are over we will be purchasing some inexpensive towels to make several of these for gifts.

        That Grrl- It's funny that you mentioned that! I have recently been trying to figure out how to do a miniature pin cushion and was planning to do a hub on it. I'll definitely add the link when I get it done. Thank you so much for all your visits to my hubs.. I really appreciate it :)

        I really like the little matryoshka doll. Another nice easy project you could add to your list is a pincushion, a good thing for a beginning sewer to have.

        I am so glad I discovered this. My sister is coming to go on a cruise with me next week and she is bringing me a sewing machine. I am so excited. I am bookmarking this site so I can make some of these cute little critters for my grandson.

        I am a bit OCD and like to finish things I begin in one sitting. That is the main reason I have never taken up sewing. But I am going to give it a try. Again thanks for posting this. ps
