    Beginner's project?

    Advertisements
    Okay, so I'm really overwhelmed looking at things on pintrest to sew, I just learned yesterday people! So, is there anything anyone can suggest as a beginner's project?

    Oh and preferably nothing too time consuming, I still have schoolwork to worry about.

    What are you looking for? Beauty, home decor, food, sewing, anything with wine bottles or corks? there are so many subcategories. and yes, wine bottles are their own category.

    You can make really simple tote bags that you can use for groceries or what have you. You can make really simple blankets as well! And headbands are really easy too. If you look at my blog below, I have a resources page (that needs major updating!) that has a bunch of tutorials.

    Oh I think I'll try the grocery bag! What kind of fabric should I use? Cotton seems too lightweight.

    This is a fast an easy apron that looks really cute. You can make them in different holiday fabrics - use premade bias tape and it goes really fast.

    I used cotton, and they came out really nice! Since they have an outside and lining they are nice and sturdy, and fold up easy!

    ETA: If you were talking about the grocery bag from my blog, that's what I'd do. If you just wanted a simple tote to use for groceries a canvas or something sturdier would be better.
