Home sewing projects make great gifts

For example, aprons are a great gift idea for many occasions and can be altered for men, women and children. Make frilly aprons in prints to match kitchen decor for female friends and family.

Use a solid fabric to construct simple aprons for men and embroider "King of the Grill" on the front. Make smaller aprons out of fun fabrics for kids, adding many interesting pockets for storing toys or art supplies.

Patterns for gift ideas also include pillowcases, teddy bears and other toys, pillows and hot pads. You can embellish these patterns in the same way as the aprons to fit many gifting needs.

For little girls, doll clothes also make easy gifts and can use up scraps from previous projects. By planning ahead, you can also surprise a recipient with a well-crafted quilt!

Beginning sewing projects are great for learning

Another reason to make easy sewing projects is to hone your stitching skills. Whether you are working up to the creation of a master quilt or you want to be able to make your own clothing one day, starting with easy projects helps build skills slowly without creating frustration.

There is nothing worse than using up a bolt of expensive fabric on a project that doesn't turn out. Before you move on to difficult items, you can try simple projects that provide stunning results.

Perfect practice projects for beginners involve easy cuts, lots of straight stitches and minimal required finishing touches. Pillowcases are one of the easiest projects to start with.
