Sometimes it feels like the 60s are still here with us. Guess what? They are, and in a good way! For a project to keep you feeling cool and looking cool, you can't go wrong with our Palm Springs Summer Caftan. This project is cut in one piece, made with a lightweight fabric like chiffon, cotton gauze, batiste, or lawn — something that drapes well under its own weight.
Before the hot weather really hits, check your dresser for summer shorts. Need a new pair? Recycle those old jeans with our Sunny Season Jeans to Shorts Refashion pattern! This is a great, low-sew pattern that sewists of any level can take on.
When it's time for a picnic or you're packing snacks for the road, take the sustainable route and make some Snack Time Reusable Sandwich Bags. This is a great environmental alternative to the endless stream of plastic snack and sandwich bags, and it's much more economical, too!
Summer's a great time to travel. Make sure you have the right bag for the right stuff. Make our Bon Voyage Mini Travel Bag to hold whatever small things you need to keep organized: sunscreen, charging cords, and other travel essentials. If you like working with precuts, you're going to love this pattern!
Picking the right zipper for a project can feel like a challenge to some beginning sewists: so many choices! No worries, we've got you covered. Read All About Zippers: Our Simple Guide for Sewing Beginners to learn about zippers from A to Z. When you're done, you'll know more about zippers than you ever thought possible!
Another great technique to master is mitered corners. They give your projects a clean, professional finish — and they cut down on fabric waste, too! Read 6 Easy Steps to Sewing Mitered Corners and you'll have another solid sewing skill to add to your toolbox. You'll discover there are plenty of opportunities to use this technique: on napkins, quilts, garment hems and more!
