Fun Vintage Sewing Projects


Sometimes it can be a fun change to sew something vintage that isn’t an apron, a skirt, or a dress.  Often when I think vintage, my mind immediately goes to garments.  I begin browsing my patterns, books, and Pinterest for the perfect item.  But sometimes its fun to think outside of the box…or at least outside of the closet.  So I challenged myself to find three easy yet very vintage-y projects that would satisfy my retro need while still offering a nice change.

Here is what I found!

All links are listed below the image.

These hangers are a perfect way to still focus on vintage garments, while letting you go absolutely wild with color!  I love how these hangers are finished with little puff balls and tassels!  These would be wonderful to give as Christmas gifts!!

These burp clothes are sooooo sweet!!  Make them for a friend, a family member, or for your own little one! Just be sure you don’t mind them getting covered in formula!

My last vintage sewing project is this adorable tomato pincushion!  What I love is the switch from solid red fabric to a happy red gingham!  Make a whole crop of these tomatoes in various tones and patterns!

Sewing vintage can relate to a wide variety of projects.  And with Christmas coming soon, why not create a few of these projects to give away to loved ones.  Not only may you save a few dollars, but the thought and time that goes into them will most certainly be appreciated!

Have fun!
