Sewing was something that I saw my mom do often. I can’t even imagine the gorgeous sewing projects that she would do with the beautiful fabrics and patterns that we can find today. I love fabric and smart ideas so today I am combining both and sharing some of my favorite sewing projects ever. These ideas would make beautiful gifts that you can do for someone else or for yourself!
