20 QUICK Girl Clothing Tutorials….made in about an hour!

I’ve been going through my girls’ closets and drawers before school starts this week, getting rid of the small stuff and making room for bigger sizes.  We’ve purchased many new things but I’ve also being making them a few items.  And most are things I’ve already made in the past (and shared here on the blog)……but are just staple items around here that I make over and over again.  Just like a recipe, I refer back to my sewing posts often, to see exactly how I put them together.  And my favorite type of sewing project to whip up, are the FAST ones!

So, just in case you need a few REALLY QUICK sewing tutorials for girls, here are my absolute favorites!  My girls love them, I love making them, and most are very inexpensive (because they’re made from old clothing).

So, grab a few pieces of fabric and set aside an hour or two…..and get sewing!
