This great Kimono is an easy sewing project for a beginner, and creates a useful Kimono third piece that's easy to wear casual or dressed up.  All you need is some fabric and a rolled hemming foot.  

This works as a great beach cover up, over a dress for an evening out, or with a t-shirt and jeans. 

This tote is a great project to practice a sewing technique you’ve wanted to do in a smaller project that can be finished quickly.  Here I use this project to practice my Free Motion Quilting skills, but you can easily use up old quilt blocks, embroidery, Sashiko, or try another technique for your tote. The basic instructions will work for any material, but it’s tailored to a quilted outer.   

My favorite beginner’s quilt- the Classic 9 Patch

The 9-patch is such a great quilt to start with as a beginner, but it has so many design options that it can create amazing results for experienced quilters as well and it comes together quickly. 

Here is our beginner guide to Free Motion Quilting with a Ruler (also called templates). Free Motion Quilting templates help you to create designs like Baptist Fans, Arcs, Clamshells, Waves and more. This getting started guide will help you install your ruler foot, setup your machine and get started!
