18 Easy Useful Sewing Projects

My husband bought me a sewing machine last December and I thought what would I make as a beginner?

Well, definitely I won’t be able to do something difficult and spectacular.

But at least I can sew something that’s useful and even better perhaps I can sell it!

I looked around on Pinterest and found some interesting sewing projects that I can try and here I am. Making a post about it!

Here’s a collection of the best free sewing patterns & tutorials gathered from all over the web.

You’ll find patterns here for bed caddies, fabric rollups, pouches and many more!

And because some of these projects use very little fabric, they will be ideal for using up those smaller scraps of fabric you may have leftover from other projects.

Let’s take a look at what we can sew!


These sewing projects are actually useful and can help to organize your house!
