10 Simple Sewing Projects for Beginners

Recently, I bought a sewing machine so I could do something I’ve always wanted – sew a quilt. I have this vision of sewing a perfect King size quilt that will be so awesome we can use it for years to come and pass it on to our children one day. So imagine my consternation when I broke out the machine, wound my first bobbin, fired it all up and began to sew my pre-cut fabric squares only to find that… um… you really do have to have some idea what you’re doing!

I think the quilting might have to wait just a bit until I perfect my technique. So I set off to find some easy tutorials for beginning sewers. Thanks to Pinterest and Google, I found a huge amount and decided to share them with those of you who might be looking for the same thing.
