It’s that time again! Every couple of weeks, I compile the five best quick weekend sewing ideas I’ve saved over the last several days.
Let’s jump right in!

Large Hot Pad
First up, I’ve been wanting to make a large, casserole-sized hot pad ever since my husband refinished our dining table and I’m afraid of putting heat on it. Deb’s Days has a great tutorial for one!
Pillow Case PJ
I love this idea! I immediately saved it to my “Sewing for Teens” board on Pinterest, because my girls would be so into making PJ shorts out of a vintage pillow case! Go grab the free pattern from The Sewing Revival.
Carolyn Friedlander used her own gorgeous fabric line to make a stunning drawstring backpack with a front zipper. She used the String Bag pattern from Green Pepper Patterns. I think the zipper pocket really sets this apart from other similar bags.
Wide Legged Pants
So-Sew-Easy will walk you through how to sew a pair of wide leg pants using a pattern from Craftsy. This style is everywhere currently and they are super easy to sew!
Name Banner Bunting
In this tutorial, I walk you through how to make a name banner bunting for the little ones in your life. I’ve also made them for baby showers with the baby’s name on them, and I taught a class of kids how to make their own!
That’s five things! I hope you all have a great weekend and that you squeeze in some time for sewing!
