Beyond Quilting: Our Favorite Sewing & Machine Embroidery Projects

Sewing and embroidery are wonderful crafts that open up possibilities for endless projects! And while we love quilting, there are so many other simple projects that make cool home decor, fashion accessories, and gifts. Here are a few of our favorite precut sewing projects and machine embroidery projects that are available at Sit n’ Sew Fabrics.

Simple Throw Pillows

Two-panel throw pillows are some of the easiest and most gratifying sewing projects for beginners. And with a precut, adorable panel kit like this Blue Heart Pillow Panel Kit, it can’t get any simpler. All you’ll need is your sewing supplies and some pillow stuffing. You could even reuse the stuffing from an old pillow! You can make pillow panel kits into personalized machine embroidery projects by adding beautiful finishing touches like monogrammed initials, names, and meaningful dates.

Advanced Throw Pillows

Once you’ve got the simple panel pillows down pat, you can move on to block-style pillow kits like this gorgeous Cork Fabric Precut Pillow Kit. It’s like a mini quilt with precut fabric pieces that can be sewn together just like in the picture! We love precut sewing projects made with cork fabric because it’s hypoallergenic for people with sensitivities. Each piece is made from the natural cork oak tree and harvested sustainably. Plus, because it’s natural, each pattern is completely unique, much like a fingerprint!

Cute Stuffed Animals

Who wouldn’t want a handmade stuffed animal? Kids and adults alike love them! Our favorite right now is this Joey the Shop Dog Plushie Panel Kit that makes two adorable stuffed pups (one big and one small!) for your loved one to enjoy. These stuffed animals also make great machine embroidery projects. Before assembling the animal, you could embroider a name on the chest piece for an adorable, personalized baby shower gift.
