Some Fun Summer Sewing Patterns
Updated July 2023
Something happens to us when it comes to summer sewing. We see cute tote bags, picnic accessories, anything that reminds us of outdoor summer fun—and we want to make them. Here are a few fun summer patterns to make just those things: tote bags, aprons, and other accessories.
What a perfect carryall, you’ll say. It’s easy to sew and large enough for your beach towel, a good book, and other beach must-haves. Get creative and select vibrant fabrics for a truly summer look. This tote has two size options, and directions for quilting if you desire. Plus, it has roomy interior pockets for snacks, sunscreen, paperbacks, and more.
This is such a clever summer accessory. It is a lounge chair cover designed for cozy terrycloth fabric. It even has side pockets for sunscreen, glasses, etc. Carry the chair cover, or whatever else, in the included versatile cylinder-shaped, drawstring tote. This pair of summer essentials would be a terrific gift for your beach and pool buddies.
This easy vintage apron or beach cover-up is made with two main pattern pieces. All are open at the sides with a lowered round neckline, jumbo super ’70s rick-rack trim, and ribbon side ties. Options include a patch pocket or shorter length with large ball fringe trim or cobbler-type pocket. One size fits most adults.
Use a lightweight, quick-drying Turkish towel to sew an all-in-one park or beach tote.
