Five Quick Sewing Projects for When You Have No Time to Sew

I think every one who loves to sew wishes they had more time to commit to it. I don’t think I have ever met anyone who creates anything really that doesn’t want more time to devote to their passion. For me obviously that passion is sewing but, as I have mentioned in about all of my previous posts, I have had really little time to dedicate to sewing lately.

When I do have time its really only in quick half-hour chunks or a quick few minutes in between all of the other things that I have to do on a daily basis. I shared a while back that I am in the process of making a quick, one block at a time, but repetition is never something that I have liked very much and I have found myself searching for other quick and easy projects that I can accomplish in a small amount of time. Five of these quick and easy projects have really stuck out to me and of course I just had to share them with you all as well! They are all projects that would be great for beginner as well so bonus points for that too!

When SewCanShe’s Mini Quilt of the Month post popped up on my Facebook feed I knew instantly that this would be a great compromise to my uncontrollable desire for a big project and my very real lack of of time. It helped that I had a stack of fat quarters that I had collected on my travels last summer sitting on the top of my stash, just begging to be worked into a project and it was breaking my heart to be letting them just sit there. I am hoping that I will have enough fabric to create most, if not all, of these little beauties throughout the year from that fabric so that I will end with a beautiful, matching set to display in the sewing room that I will one day possess.
