Playing Card Holder
Chances are if you have kids, you know playing cards with them is a little too easy because those little hands just can’t handle all those cards! This Playing Card Holder tutorial is the perfect gift for kids to make their friends and siblings. You could customize each piece of fabric to their favourite colour and really have fun with this! Best part? No snaps, just velcro and lots of straight-line sewing. Perfect for your beginner sewist!
A personal favourite at our house is Pillowcases! This method for making pillowcases is by far the easiest for anyone to make! You can go crazy with not only the prints you use but the fabrics too! Why not give it a go in something cozy like flannel? One of the best parts of this tutorial is it’s all straight lines and by the time you are done, you’ve only sewn 3 lines and it’s a pillowcase!
