September is National Sewing Month, and we're ready to celebrate all month long! Want to join in on the fun? Here are a few ways to ignite your creativity for a September full of new sewing projects.
1. Give a handmade gift
You don't need a special occasion to make something meaningful for someone you love. Whether it's a simple tote bag or a customized garment, a personalized gift means the most. Try these simple sewing projects — there's something for everyone on this list!
2. Plan a charity sewing project
Share your sewing with those in need this month. Need a few ideas? Consider these charitable organizations, join our blogger's NICU smock sew-along or gather your sewing friends to help out a local non-profit.
3. Learn something new — for free!
4. Treat your equipment well
Make your sewing supplies last longer and work better with a good deep clean! Find out how to clean your iron, sewing machine and, while you're at it, your whole sewing room. By the time you're done, you'll be sewing better and faster.
