I’t’s that time again! Every couple of weeks, I gather my five absolute favorite sewing ideas or tutorials I’ve collected on Pinterest recently and compile them here to inspire you (and me!) to get sewing this weekend. I’m super excited about this edition of Five Things, I’ve found the coolest projects! So let’s just jump right in, shall we?

This project seriously gives me the giggles! If you care more about the football food than the football game, this hat is for you. Even better, you can embroider it while you “watch” the game, haha. This tutorial will teach you how to hand embroider your hat, no fancy supplies or embroidery machine required.
I’m obsessed with this project idea!! I’ve been throwing those scrappy strips away for years, but I’m in love with this fun twine made from those strips of fabrics you always end up with after cutting out a project. I’m going to start saving them for sure. I wonder if I could gather enough by Christmas to wrap gifts with. I may even be tempted to fake some scraps by cutting my Christmas fabrics into strips, haha.
I really need one of these for when I take my hand sewing over to the couch. Hopefully it will help me not drop pins on tor lose my scissors. I like that it’s compact, holds my thread scissors, a seam gauge and just enough pins, needles and Wonder Clips for my hand finishes.
I’ve been wanting to make one of these forever, but somehow this tutorial seems less intimidating than others I’ve seen. I really love the plain rope with the colored thread! These would make great gifts. I think I might make one up to hold the mini pumpkins I like to buy for Fall decor.
A quilt without piecing?? I never would have guessed this quilt wasn’t pieced together! If you want a quilt without the tedium, this method will do the trick. Can’t go wrong with her Harry Potter fabric choice, either!
This has reminded me of a whole cloth quilt I made for our bed several years ago out of a fun cactus tapestry I found at Target. Check out how I did that right here.
As for me, I have a shirt cut out to sew up this weekend and I’m trying to decide how many of these ideas I can squeeze in too! How about you? Are you sewing this weekend? Do tell!
