Make one of these great summer sewing projects for all the fun activities you’ll be doing like swimming, biking, hiking, and exploring! There’s something for everyone to make!

I love summertime and having my kids home from school. We have so much fun playing, hiking, swimming, and biking.

I’ve put a big list together of all the things you can sew for the summer! Each sewing project is something that will help you or something lightweight you can wear. A lot of these have free PDF sewing patterns to help you make it!

Which one is your favorite?

What is a PDF sewing pattern?

A PDF pattern is a sewing pattern designed on the computer and organized so that it can be printed on several letter or A4 size pieces of paper.

I love using PDF sewing patterns because if the pattern gets ruined or if my children or I changed sizes, I can always print it again. It’ll never be destroyed since I have a digital version!

How do you use a PDF sewing pattern?

Open the PDF on a computer and click print. When printing make sure that the scaling is set to 100% or no scaling so that the pattern prints at the correct size.

Once the pattern is printed it can be taped together to get the full size. Then the pattern can be cut for each pattern piece size or individual sizes can be traced so that the pattern can be used again and again. Learn how to use PDF sewing patterns.
