Interested in learning how to sew, but aren’t sure where to start, or what projects are best for beginners? Morex Enterprises of Los Angeles, California, is your premiere online and wholesale fabric store, and we happen to know a little thing or two about sewing — after all, we’ve only been sewing for years. Here are our four recommendations for beginner seamstresses and seamsters!
A pillowcase is an excellent beginner project because it requires a simple, single straight-line stitch. Additionally, this is a great project for kids too, as it teaches the fundamentals of sewing. Children will learn to keep lines straight when sewing and to manage their seam allowance.
Tote bags are also easy to sew and make an excellent beginner sewing project! Totes allow you to create a perfectly functional clothing item with minimal effort and sewing. They can be whatever size you want, and you can always use random/leftover scraps of fabric in your new tote bag!
Gift Card Holder
Sewing someone a gift card holder is easy, and a great way to show someone that you care about them. We can sell you fabric in whatever color and texture for your gift card holder from our online fabric store, and then all you have to do is sew two pieces of fabric together to create a pocket for your gift card to sit. It’s as easy as that!
A favorite of many, the classic throw blanket is great, regardless if you’re using regular fabric or custom-printed fabric. Throw blankets can keep you warm when it gets cold, and it’s an easy sewing project for just about anyone. Plus you can use our online fabric store to select fabric in whatever color and texture you want!
Many beginner seamstresses and seamsters started their hobby with these projects, which is why we think they make great projects for anyone who is looking to get started. And you can’t get started without the right fabric. Shop our online fabric store today!
