Thread: easy things to sew & sell

    easy things to sew & sell

    Hi all! I want to learn how to sew & was wondering if anyone knew what things are easy to make & I might be able to sell them in a craft show or something.

    Dresses/aprons for dish soap bottles are easy to make.

    You could also try funky little handmade teddy bears.

    Baby stuff is always a good sell. Here is a pretty simple diaper bag.

    How about reusable shopping bags for grocery shopping? You can use a plastic shopping bag as a pattern. Drink coasters might also be good, especially with the warm weather coming. Nothing is worse than a sweaty glass ruining your table.

    Maybe some pretty quilted type material like Vera Bradley uses to make eyeglass cases? Those are very easy. Hair bows are another one which does not take sewing skills.
    I may be knocked down, but I sure as hell am not out of the game yet!

    These are pretty easy and I think would be a good seller. It is a easier way to make the baby quilt because it does not have to be as perfect http://www.icanteachmychild.com/2011...uilt-for-baby/

    A simple reversible bag with contrasting fabrics and long strap( with a pocket if you wanted to get a little fancier) if you make them small they can be little girls carry all bags ( aka play purse ) and if you have priced these in stores they are EXPENSIVE!

    You can also use old blue jeans to make dresses, bags or a multitude of other items ( this only works if your machine can handle it.. some of the newer machines trying to go through to thick of fabric can bend or break internal parts.. I learned this the hard way!!)

    I don't have the exact title of the book, but there is a book of designs for sock creatures - from bunnies to penguins to cats. They are adorable depending on the sock design you use, you can make them from sock orphans (i asked on freecycle and got piles), and you can make sock mice from the smaller parts. Fairly easy to follow, I am not the best sewer and I made some killer penguins out of mens dress socks! It may just be called "sock creatures". They would sell best around holidays, but are very easy, and if you use "post consumer" socks and buttons you can sell them as upcycled craft (some yuppies will spend more on stuff like that)

    Although this project is listed as a kids sewing, I think it would do well at craft fairs. Little ones always need that extra support in stroller or car seat. You could do in fun colors/patterns and gain experience

    Shoulder bags made out of jeans....REALLY easy, fun. Made a few for gifts, people loved them

    What great links you guys have up. I have also been goggling different things to make and found myself making a yamaka. I also made an ipad over that did not take very long. There a several parts to it but it makes really easy even for a beginner like me.
