A Summer Sewists Bucket List

Making bucket lists for different things can be fun and exciting. We have created a summer bucket list for sewists (a person whose passion is sewing). From simple sweet to challenging & thoughtful, we have some ideas that you just may be adding to your own summer bucket list.

  1. Pick a charity, make a quilt, and donate your quilt. With so many charities to choose from you shouldn’t have a problem finding one that speaks to you. In case you need an idea, our charity of choice is Quilts Of Valor ~whose mission is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.

2. Make a project with precut fabric. Save yourself some time from cutting & get inspired with the possibilities of what you can make! We suggest taking a look at our variety of precuts and patterns that have been created exclusively for Pineapple Fabrics precut collections.

3. Machine sew a decorative stitch sampler. Create your own stitch library making it easy to see all the stitches that your machine or machines can sew. We think this decorative stitch sampler by Sew For Home is a great inspiration to creating your own.

4. Show your machine some love and clean it. How To Clean Your Machine the Safe Way by She Can Sew is just what you need to help with doing this. Remember a clean machine is a happy machine!

5. Make a pin cushion. These sweet things come in all shapes and sizes. They can be a reflection of your personality & sewing style. Check out our Pinterest board “Pincushions” to get inspired to make your own. No matter if it is a classic tomato or modern, we have pinned something for everyone.

We hope you enjoy what we have picked out for you. Have a great summer & remember life is short, we only have so much time to sew, so get started!

From our Pineapple Family to yours ~ make, create, & be happy.
