1. For the animal lovers
DIY felt fox purse
The great thing about felt is that it’s an easy-to-use material for amateur sewers,
and since this design relies mostly on simple shapes, it’s a great starter project for beginners.
2. For picnic planners
DIY re-useable sandwich bag
These practical sandwich bags use laminated cotton for the exterior, and can be styled however you like. This project isn’t just a breeze to complete, but is better for the planet than a throwaway item because you can use the finished product again and again.
3. For staying safe in style
DIY fabric face mask
With Covid-19 restrictions still in place across most of the country, face masks could be a staple part of our everyday wardrobe for some time yet. The benefits of making your own is that you can choose materials that are most comfortable for you as an individual, and create bespoke designs that exist nowhere else.
4. For day-trippers
DIY pleather duffle bag
For those that have already started planning Spring days out, a day-trip bag that is just big enough for the essentials is a must-have. We think this one is the perfect size!
We’ve suggested pleather (plastic leather) as a cheaper, easier and more environmentally friendly alternative than real leather, but your design choices are up to you. Go wild!
5. For coffee addicts
DIY reusable photo coffee cozy
This is probably the simplest project on our list, but the most unique. We’d never seen this idea until we came across A Beautiful Mess’ blog, but have tried it for ourselves and the result is a brilliant gift for friends and family.
One of the best things about the project is that it’s perfect for using up scraps of fabric leftover from previous projects.
6. For the work-from-homers
Like most of the country, we’ve been working mostly from home at Sewbox HQ and loved it when we came across this project. Your home office doesn’t have to be filled with bland colours - why not pick your favourite fabric from our huge collection and spruce up your workspace?
