Just two rectangles of fabric, webbing straps and a drawstring are used to make this simple backpack. So quick and easy to make, you just might want to make several in different fabrics and colors!
This handy sewing machine mat with pockets not only helps protect your table surface, it keeps your “go-to” notions right at your fingertips. The four pockets in front are perfect for your small scissors, hem rulers, fabric marking tools and more.
Note: Finished size of the mat is 16” x 20” and accommodates most standard sewing
machine sizes. Adjust fabric requirements, if needed, for machines with a larger footprint than that of a standard sewing machine.
Project Made with the Simple™ 3337 Sewing Machine
This passport holder is one of the quickest projects you can make! It’s made using cork fabric, which means fabric edges won’t fray, nor will they need seam finishing. There’s a place for your passport, as well as pockets for any other smaller documents you might want to keep handy. So stitch one up before your next traveling adventure!
For those longer flights when you want to take a snooze, this eye mask will allow your dreams to take flight! The top side of the eye mask features false eyelashes, stitched on by machine, for a little bit of fun. The back side of the eye mask is made from satin, so it is smooth against your skin. Two elastic bands, instead of just one, help keep the mask in place while you sleep. You’ll look like a sleeping beauty, for sure
This is a perfect scrap busting project, and they turn out so professional looking. You will become so addicted to sewing these adorable little leggings! This pattern is drafted to fit an 11” doll.
Go back-to-school in style with this quick and easy pencil case made almost entirely out of... that’s right - measuring tape!
Why wait till the holiday season is upon us to start those holiday sewing projects? Get a head start by stitching up some lovely gift bags. This project is designed for the SINGER® Legacy™ SE300 and SE340 sewing and embroidery machines. However, if you don’t have an embroidery machine, you can skip the embroidery part of these instructions and construct the bag with your favorite fabric, starting at Step 14. Finished size of the bag is approximately 10” x 13”.
This easy serger project for kids had to be some of the most fun I have had sewing lately. While this is clearly a stunning serging project for your child or grandchild, I’ve included an adult and child version in the printable PDF pattern - just in case you’ve fallen in love with it for yourself. It’s summer, and nothing says summer like juicy berries and adorable hat projects! Also…. Raspberry Beret…. Get it ;)
This combination was too irresistible.
For those of you that do not have a serger, or are wondering what a serger is, let me give you a quick recap: sometimes called an overlock machine, my serger is the perfect companion to the sewing machine I already own. It sews a seam and seam finish at the same time, but also trims away excess seam allowance. A serger allows me to easily insert elastic band (like I did in this project), add ribbing to t-shirts and sweatshirts, or make neat rolled hems! What I love best, is that serger projects will make my projects look as professional as store-bought items. If you’re interested, you can check out Singer sergers right here on Singer.com. I have the SINGER® Professional™ 5 14T968DC Serger.
But let’s get back to the good part! The serger project! This cute raspberry beret is so easy to sew. It takes just a few minutes to put together and looks every bit the stylish accessory! So let’s get started.
