Easy Knit Sewing Projects for Beginners

I love sewing with knit fabrics.  They have a lot of give and are very forgiving to new sewists.  However, I know that they scare the pants of a lot of people.  In fact, people will avoid knit projects for years because they don't have a serger or they've never sewn on "stretchy fabric".  But you shouldn't be afraid!  There are so many easy knit sewing projects for beginners that you can easily make your first project without being afraid.

If you've never sewn with knits, make sure you check out our Choosing Knit Fabrics post.  Half the battle with conquering sewing with knits is making sure you have picked the correct fabric for the project your are working on.  If you have a lightweight knit for a bag pattern, you'll probably run into problems.  Likewise if you choose a heavy knit for a t-shirt, you'll not enjoy sewing or wearing it.

We also have some great Tips and Tricks for Sewing with Knits that will help those first beginner sewing projects to go a little better..  These posts will help you get started and be successful.
