Today my children broke up for the summer school holidays, but here I am thinking about back to school sewing!! It’s never too early to start sewing a project for back to school, especially, if like me, your summer holidays just fly by with lots of fun outdoor activities.
15+ Back to School Sewing Projects
This super quick and easy pencil pouch only takes ten minutes to make!! I love how it is made of microsuede upholstery fabric.
Just how cute is this earbud pouch? I can visualize making one for my child and then having lots of requests from their friends to make them one too!!
This project for a DIY mouse pad is going to brighten up any desk space – a perfect gift, or one to keep for yourself!!
This DIY tote bag has a pocket for a tablet, plus a couple of slip pockets for keys and mobile phone – almost too cute to share!
Or go for a bag on a very different scale, this backpack is perfect for coins for school – never lose loose coins again.
What a great idea – I have to confess when I made my daughter a period bag I never thought to make it a wet/dry bag. I love the wristlet and two pockets
This sandwich bag is perfect for picnics as well as school bags – I love how they fold up super small once you have eaten your sandwich (no large plastic boxes to carry around!).
Here is another back to school sewing project I want to keep for myself!! Any teen would be delighted with this leather laptop case.
This drawstring bag is super clever, no lining but hidden seams – it is perfect for snacks, make it bigger for sports kit or trainers, the possibilities are endless.
I love this project, a weighted book weight is ingenious, perfect for reading your book on a breezy summer day.
Refashion a man’s shirt into a waterpoof drawstring bag, line with PUL or a former shower curtain.
These are just adorable, last September my daughter covered books in gift wrap – not this year!!
Whip up a padded tablet case from a much loved old pair of jeans
What an ingenious reuse of broken umbrellas, keep all school books dry with this waterproof backpack cover.
Perfect for any person to tie their hair back – add a splash of personality to school uniform!
