I love Summer. The slower days, the warmer weather and even the evening thunderstorms. I also love to sew during the summer. I’ve noticed that I tend to alter a bit what I work on during the summer months. I prefer simple, bright and fun sewing projects. If you’re looking for a new sewing project to tackle this summer, I’ve compiled a list of more than 60 Easy Summer Sewing Projects for you. I hope you’ll find something fun to sew on this list!
Easy Summer Sewing Projects:
Every summer I start with a giant list of things that I want to sew during the season. Every year I manage to only finish half of what I’ve planned. I have managed, I feel to be somewhat productive during the summer. Thanks to a few tips. Before we start into our list of easy summer sewing projects, I thought I’d give you a few “tips” for summer productivity.
Summer Sewing Tips
1- Sew during in-between times:
I notice that with the kids home from the summer, and without a specific family schedule that my sewing time blocks seem to disappear. I’ve learned to sew a few minutes here and there and manage to stay pretty productive. If you look, you can find time in between other things to work.
2- Enjoy the weather when you can:
I live in Kentucky, some summer nights are gorgeous, warm and breezy. Some nights are hot, sticky and miserable. I’ve learned if it’s one of those “gorgeous” nights, to put away the sewing and just go sit outside. On the flip side of that, if it’s just too hot and sticky to be outside, I’ll take the time to enjoy the indoor air conditioning and sew something.
3- Involve your kids:
My kids are older, they don’t want to sew, but I’ve noticed that if I involve them in the process a bit then I still get to spend time with them while I’m working. I’ll ask their opinions on color or fabric choices and even plan entire projects with them. I’ve found that they are full of fantastic ideas and some of my best tutorials have come from their suggestions.
