What’s the Project? So you’ve got a sewing machine and you want some quick and easy sewing projects for beginners? Here are 25 things that are so easy to sew that you can get them done in about 10 minutes! Something great for everyone.
Do you ever want to just sit down and sew something super quick and super easy? Something you can sit down and start and finish in one quick sitting? It feels good to accomplish a sewing project quickly and sometimes those big ones can be fulfilling, but once in a while it feels so great to just knock something out fast.
I love a simple project that can be done quickly, so today I am giving you some very quick and easy sewing projects-25 Things to Sew in Under 10 Minutes. (See also 25 Things to Sew in Under 30 Minutes.) They are quick and easy sewing projects that should take an experienced seamstress about 10 minutes or less to sew and they can be perfect projects for a beginning sewer too-should be able to do them fast.

25 Things to Sew in Under 10 Minutes
Let me just make one note. These should be able to be sewn up in about 10 minutes. I wasn’t necessarily counting prep time in that. It might take a little longer to print patterns, cut and prep fabric, etc., but the sewing should be fast and even with the prep time these should be pretty quick and easy sewing projects. If you’re a beginning sewer they might take a little longer, but the idea here was to have easy sewing projects that you could get done quickly. Enjoy sewing up these fun sewing patterns!
Kid’s Play Mat:
Ric Rac Dish Towels:
Seat Belt Pillow:
I’d love to hear which of these has you excited and ready to try it? Do you have a favorite easy sewing project here? I love the sunglasses case and the laptop sleeve. What about you? Hope it goes well! And once you’ve done these, try 25 Things to Sew in Under 30 Minutes

This is great!
As a beginner, I’m searching where to start my first project. Fortunately, find your blog and it will help me to determine. I would like to start with a pillow cover.
Hi Amber. Do you know of any patterns for making a bag using wooden or plastic DIY handles that you buy in a craft store like Joanns Fabrics ? I ordered new handles from amazon and bought the fabric from Joann’s. I am sure I can figure it out but if there is a pattern out there I would love it.
Sorry! I don’t know.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful sewing projects. I have been away from sewing for many years. Here lately I’ve had a dream to get back to sewing. It is so rewarding to see thread any fabric come together in something you can be proud of. I think your projects are perfect to get me back in the groove. Making my shopping list out now. THANKS!
That makes me so happy!

I made over 50 bookmarks as thank you gifts this summer. Everyone loved them! Just one question, will you still be posting on this site as well as your new sight?

I love all of them! Great blog. Thank you.
These are all great except the seat belt pillow. The child isn’t buckled properly, and additions like pillows are not recommended for child passenger safety.
I am new to sewing. My mother has her own sewing business and I really admire her beautiful works of art. I wish to be like her and this is bringing me closer and closer to perfecting sewing. Thanks a lot!

Love you site….just one question….? In your description about yourself, you say you are a “mom of 4 crazy boys, wife of 1…..”? Just curious…lol….it looks like you are saying you aren’t married to multiple men…?
Yep. Just one great hubby! 🙂
Some cute ideas! Love making things that are quick and easy!
these are wonderful, wow, you are so creative thanks for the great ideas!
Found your awesome website from a post on The Daily Seam’s FB page. Beautifully done projects. Can’t wait to go through the rest of your site!
These are amazing. I love this website and i have only seen this page. My mum would have loved that pillow seat belt as the kids head always drops and the pillow always falls. Keep up the great ideas.

Michelle Alderman says
These are great! After a few very time consuming commissioned quilts this is just the remedy I need to et back into the spirit
Love your collection of crazy projects Amber. My favorite is the keychain lip balm holder!
I love the ruffled fabric and have made several scarves, but had to get it 300 miles away at Hobby Lobby. None locally. Then I’ve made tons of pillow cases, but just used a yard of flannel fabric. I do fleece blankets and not sure it takes 10 minutes, but I love sewing them with the serger, so fast. Thanks for sharing.
I have made a few of these things already and love your post. Thanks again, Joan
The things you came up with are brilliant! I love them and will have to try them:) thank-you for all your posts:)
