Can you believe that summer break is coming to an end in a few weeks and the kids will be heading back to school? Summer always seems like it’s going to be so long and then it flies by in a blink! We’ve already received our teacher assignments, so back to school is right around the corner! I wanted to share some sewing patterns that I think are really great for More Back to School Sewing. Maybe you want to make your little one, one special item for back to school or maybe you want to make them a whole bunch. Either way, this list will get you started!

Create an Embellished Hoodie using a store bought hooded sweatshirt. This unique top can be created using fabric, trims, hand embroidery and more! It’s a wonderful way to let your children have their personality shine in their wardrobe! Let them help you pick out the fabrics and colors……trust me, they will love it!

Sew a Semi-Handmade Wardrobe using your children’s outgrown, stained or old clothing. You can turn stained shirts into dresses, old shirts into skirts, make plain dresses into one-of-a-kind creations for just dollars and a little bit of time!

Whip up a bunch of these Reusable Snack Bags for school or work lunches! These are a super-quick sew and are so cute.

These are two of my very favorite patterns for school clothes. The Maisie Skirt and Leggings are a two-for-one pattern. It includes these adorable knit leggings that are super comfortable and stylish. You can embellish the legs for the younger girl or leave them solid for an older girl. The waistband is also created without elastic for ultimate comfort. The Maisie pattern includes a skirt pattern with side pockets too. The skirt is flat front with a gathered skirt. You can dress it up as much or as little as you like.
Also pictured here is the Double Dutch Cardigan for boys and girls! The cardigan is an essential wardrobe staple. It’s great for layering and is wonderful to have when maybe your school is a little chilly with the air conditioning still on. The girl version features multiple patterned fabrics and ruffles. The boy version is more simplified, but equally as cute! All patterns are size 6 month – 10 years!

These ruffle shorts are so great for that active little girl in your life. They are a cute accent underneath dresses and can even be worn as shorts with a little bit longer top. They take very little time to make and if you have the Maisie Leggings pattern (listed above), they are even faster!

This Reversible Vintage Trim Belt is a great way to add a unique accessory to your child’s wardrobe. It’s a fun way to add a pop of color and pattern and a great way to personalize their clothing.

Sew a Double Layer Twirl Skirt for your little lady. This would be a wonderful project to get your little ones sewing. And how proud would they be to wear a skirt they created on the first day of school?!?

Create a one-of-a-kind Cuffed Infinity Scarf for the older girl or tween in your life. Make this project out of lighter weight fabric for right now or use a little warmer fabric when you are thinking fall/winter.

Until next time……
