Summer Projects and Sewing tutorials – Fruit Inspired
Okay, so I’ve harvested all the fruit projects and sewing tutorials that caught my eye and put them here, ripe for the picking.
Make your summer sewing projects even more fun with these Fruit Sewing Pin Tops by Snuggle Bug University. Clay pin tops make ordinary sewing delightfully summery!
I adore these Fruit Striped Skirts from Skirt as Top… can you guess what fruit each skirt represents?
These Fruit Slice Pattern Weights sold by Procraftinate Parlour are actually for sale, but if you are good with clay I bet you could make your own pattern weights like these.
Turn any dress into a summer party with this Pineapple Pocket Tutorial by Me Sew Crazy.. adorable!
