20+ Beginner Sewing Projects

A big list of beginner sewing projects that are fun and easy to make! Simple sewing tutorials with pictures to help along the way, there is a beginner sewing project for everyone on this list!

I taught myself to sew when I was pregnant with our first child, after a few prior failed attempts. I could’ve really used a list of beginner sewing projects! Trying to work from paper patterns that assumed I had a knowledge base that I didn’t, I first tried to sew a roll-up grocery bag, from a thick upholstery weight fabric. In retrospect, common sense would’ve told me that it was going to turn out like a giant wad of burlap. After a few weeks, I tried again, attempting to sew letter pillows that were much more nuanced than my skill level. I finally had success with a simple pouf, which was the first handmade project I was actually proud of! I’m sharing a big list of beginner sewing projects shared by bloggers I trust to have correct measurements; several of these would be great teen or tween sewing projects too!

Quilted Family Grace Placemats

Sentimental sewing project - a family grace printed on fabric and used in quilted placemats. This is a sweet gift idea for anyone who has lost a loved one or has strong family dinner traditions!

Excited to share what might be one of my longest running UFOs (unfinished object) ever, a quilted family grace placemat. While I’m not religious and wasn’t raised in a religious house, my Grandpa said his grace at every meal we ate with them. He passed away when I was in college, and I knew that my Mom had his handwritten grace framed in her dining room. I asked my Aunt to help me get a copy of it, and then uploaded it to Spoonflower, printed it out, and let it sit in my sewing room for 3 years while I waffled back and forth on what to do with it.
