Let’s Dive into Our Favorite Etsy Sewing Projects for Beginners
You don’t have to be a professional to complete a hand-sewn project. If you’re looking for something unique to create, there are several Etsy sewing projects for you to choose from. In this article, you will learn about some great listings, and you may find your next project.
This design is for a cartoon-like wolf that can be made into the “Big Bad Wolf” or into a gentler, friendlier wolf. You will be provided with an instant PDF; no supplies will be shipped to you. You will receive step-by-step instructions with picture examples. The PDF can be printed as-is and will not need to be enlarged. When finished, the wolf will be 8″ x 8″, and it will take you 3-4 hours to complete. The seller also grants permission for you to sell your final product. You will need the following supplies:
- Craft felt
- Embroidery floss
- Embroidery needle
- Straight pins
- Printer and Paper
- Fiberfill stuffing
- Ultra-fine felt tip pen
This project has the words “This Took Forever” in the center of an elaborately embroidered flower pattern. With purchase, the seller will provide:
- An instant PDF
- Color and stitch keys
- Shopping list
- Color photos
- Alphabet to create personalized text
While the original text is fun, you may want to replace it with a different quote, a baby’s name, or maybe a couple’s last name, creating great gifts for a baby shower or a wedding. The PDF is sized for an 8-inch hoop. You will use seven different stitches. The seller has a walkthrough video on YouTube and will share the link at purchase. Use this pattern to make a personalized gift or a new addition to your home, but the seller does not permit selling the finished product.
This is one of the Etsy sewing projects that ship materials to your door. When purchasing, you can send the seller an image, photo, or design to be printed on your pillow fabric. You can also choose the text and font to be printed on the photo panel. You can turn this pillow into a gift, personalizing it with the recipient’s name, or you can put a unique phrase on the pillow to add a little flair. This project is recommended for users ages 8 and above. The finished product will be 6.5″ x 5″, and pillow covers and inserts are machine washable. The kit includes everything needed to hand sew, but a sewing machine can also be used. You will receive:
- Two pieces of pre-printed, pre-cut fabric with instructions on the inside
- Threading guide
- 3oz. of Polyfil stuffing
- Instruction sheet
- ***You will need your scissors.

The Etsy seller grants permission to sell the finished product provided you give credit to the shop, Charm About You.
