14 Cute Things to Sew Over the Weekend
Got nothing planned this weekend? These cute things to sew might just be the ticket to turning that boring weekend into something productive and fun!
We’ve gathered here a smorgasbord of the cutest things to sew – from plushies, purses to dishtowels and bubble dresses. Flex those sewing muscles and sew, sew, sew!
If you’re not used to working with really tiny pieces it might be tricky, but it’s also good practice. Other than that it’s just got some darts and curved sewing, so I gave it 2/10 stars in difficulty. If tiny pieces are really difficult for you it might be closer to a 3/10. All in all a decent plush to make if you’re ready to move away from pillow-style soft toys.
