This post, 40 Beginner Sewing Projects with Patterns and Tutorials, is the first in a “40”s series that I am starting in honor of the 40 days of Lent.

I’ve had a blast with making quite a few of these projects with my beginner sewing students.  Each of the links below will take you to a tutorial and either provide the measurements of all pieces needed OR will provide a free, printable pattern!  You can also find these and many more projects on my pinterest boards.  What is great about most of these…you can make most of them within a few hours, and some in an hour or less!
