Five quick & easy jersey patterns to get your sewjo back

January can be a tricky month for motivation. After a busy holiday period when some of us might have been frantically sewing presents or party outfits and others just wouldn’t have had time to sew at all, it can be hard to get back into making.

With this in mind, we’ve put together five of our quick and easy sewing patterns to help you get your sewjo (sewing mojo) back and bring you back to the sewing machine. We’ve chosen all knit patterns as most knit fabrics don’t fray, so you won’t have to worry about finishing the raw edges. All of these patterns are perfect for beginners and super quick projects for the more experienced sewers among you. They can be sewn with a zigzag stitch on a regular sewing machine or using an overlocker.
