The 5 Best Sewing Projects

Your sewing projects have a story that makes them special. A lot of effort and love goes into them. When one of my projects is done, I want to tell everyone about it.

That's why I made this section for you to show off. This is where you tell us about your favorite creation and why it's so great.

It could be the first one you made for your new house or the cute dress that makes you look sexy. I will publish your projects on my site, and they'll be seen by the world!

Check out the 5 best sewing projects submitted by other sewists, they're just lovely. (Don't forget to comment and rate your favorites.)

The 5 Best Sewing Projects

Sash Skirt

1. High Waisted Sash Skirt

By Amy from Phoenix, Az.

Here’s a really cute summer project you can make in a snap. I wore it to my husband's birthday dinner and to my friend’s wedding. Everyone I meet loves it and it is the biggest thing on my blog!

Toddler's Dungaree

2. Toddlers Dungaree

By Anshu from USA.

We sewists are always looking for inspiration. It can come from a book, a movie, or something we see on the street. Why not look through your favorite brand’s catalog? That's how I came up with this fun project.

Sewing placemats from old jeans

3. Placemats From Old Jeans

By Cindy from Texas.

I invited some friends over for dinner. I wanted the event to be really special, and I decided to make new place mats from an old pair of jeans. I needed a cheap idea, but I still wanted it to be really nice.

New Look Pattern 6902

4. My Favorite Sundress

By Lynnette from California.

Here is a Sundress I made using new look pattern 6902. This is a very cute and easy to sew dress! The bust area has darts to make it fit nicely, it zips up the back and has a gathered skirt.

Make a Dog Sweater

5. Penguin Dog Sweater

By Sara Willis from Alabama

I have a french poodle called Martha and I made this sweater for her. Now that her fur is gone, it will keep her warm when it's cold outside.

How to Get Featured

Submit your best project and tell us all about it. Include a description, the materials you used, how you made it and any fun story behind it. If your project gets chosen, you'll be featured in my top 5.

You don't need a blog to get published, all you need is an awesome idea to share. Every project will be given its own page on my site. You can share the URL with your friends, post it on facebook or pin your pics. People can even comment and rate your pages.

If you do have a blog and you'd like me to link back, your subscription must be at least 400 words long and have one picture (more is better). It must also be quality original content not published anywhere else.

For example, if you already have a skirt tutorial on your site, tell us how you came up with it and what was your inspiration, don't just copy and paste what you already have.

Submission Tips

  • Make your story fun to read.
  • Check grammar and spelling before you hit publish!
  • Your most important ideas should go in the first paragraph.
