As this pattern proves, you do not need years of experience to learn how to sew fun and unforgettable projects. As a matter of fact, when it comes to learning how to sew, pillows are among the easiest projects out there, because they usually only require a basic straight stitch, and have corners that are not too tricky to navigate.


If you're just learning how to sew, pillows can be a great start. Even if you pick up on the gist of sewing quickly, you can spice up your first pillow project with the addition of some nice applique in the form of letters, shapes, and other patterns. There is no need to be intimidated, because learning how to sew is a skill you can easily learn at your own pace. Once you have learned the basics of sewing, you can add to your sewing skills by taking on more complicated projects and patterns until you are as advanced as you want to be. But really, sewing - even sewing clothes - is often much easier than it looks!
