Link Love – 4 FREE Projects for the Young & Young at Heart

The cold snowy weather we’ve been having lately is perfect for staying in and sewing – and if your weather as been anything like ours, you may have some kids or teens at home, too.

So I’ve rounded up a short list of free projects and tutorials that my daughter Connor and I have tried and particularly recommend, specifically curated to appeal to the young (and young at heart!) 🙂

Let’s kick off with a couple of projects from one of my favorite sewing-related websites – SewCanShe.com:

Beth Ann

When health challenges made hand-sewing (and hand appliqué and hand-quilting) no longer physically viable for her, Beth Ann’s first instinct was dismay and discouragement. But Grandma Baldwin gave her a loving (but stern!) “No pity parties – just figure out a different way.” So Beth Ann turned to her trusty sewing machine and began devising ways to achieve the fine quality appliqué look she craved faster and easier than she ever thought possible. And a career was born! Now Beth Ann enjoys sharing her accessible “invisible” machine appliqué and creative machine quilting techniques with other quilters and fiber artists around the world.
