Sometimes its fun to get back to basics. With the long, hot days of summer upon us, having a simple and fulfilling project to complete in the cool air conditioning is all a person needs to feel refreshed. Here are a few of my favorite (easy) vintage inspired sewing projects!

Retro Drawstring Bag by A Spoonful of Sugar Designs
Make these little bags up in various sizes to fulfill all your needs. I love having a few little bags like these for quick trips to the library or farmer’s markets. And of course my one year old loves toting bags like these around to hold all sorts of random toys!
Sewing Machine Pillow by Quilting Digest
This little project is a quick way to get a quilting fix without having to commit to a larger size. Go stash diving to use up all those odds and ends you know you have lying around!
Camper Pincushion by Crafts Beautiful
This little camper is the epitome of summer vacation! Let this little cutie grace your sewing table and help you keep track of all those rogue pins.
Creating a Vintage Blouse from a Modern Sewing Pattern
If you want a little more of a challenge, why not take a pattern you already have and mix it up to create something more vintage. In this video tutorial, I’ll show you how to create two different blouses using one modern sewing pattern!
So don’t let the dog days of summer get you down! Grab some ice tea and head to the sewing room!
