Whether you are a beginner or an accomplished sewing enthusiast, easy one yard sewing projects are quick and fun to make.
One yard projects include purses, makeup bags, pencil bags, aprons, skirts, sleeveless tops, laundry bags, pillows, and hats. They also include stuffed toys, stand mixer covers, typewriter/computer covers, and much more.
My time is so limited that I don’t get much done in the way of sewing, these days.
I really don’t like to go back to a project once I have to leave it, as evidenced by the shirt I started my husband four years ago.
He outgrew it before I got around to finishing it, so I put it aside.
Now, he is losing weight, so I may yet finish it.

You Need a Good Sewing Machine
For any sewing project, you need a good sewing machine. I have been using this machine since summer 2014. It has a metal frame that is heavy enough it prevents the machine from ‘walking’ across the table while I am sewing. It is heavy-duty enough that I can sew denim with no trouble. I would buy this machine again. The built-in button hole and decorative and utilitarian stitches are a definite plus.
