Sewing Projects for Other Hobbies

We're passionate about sewing and dressmaking at Sew Me Sunshine. We have put together some sewing projects for your other hobbies. 

We know you guys are a multi-talented bunch so we’ve put together some sewing projects for your other hobbies. There’s some perfect projects for using smaller remnants and you can personalise bags and craft cases to exactly your needs!

The Gardener 

A good set of twill dungarees should keep you happy in the garden. This water resistant twill would make a great wide brim hat for keeping the sun and rain at bay.

The Cook 

For the home chef, we’ve heard great things about this free apron pattern. Match with a giant tote bag for trips to the market.

The Knitter

When you’re cosying up with your knitting, a tracksuit is ideal. We love this craft case for needle organisation and this project bag has a handle to help you knit on the move!
