Fourth of July Sewing Ideas
Do you realize that the 4th of July is only a few months away? It will be here in two shakes of a lamb’s tail!
Yes, I’m from the South folks. LOL
Anyway, now is the perfect time to get started on all those patriotic projects. Here is a great roundup of eleven sewing projects to get you going!
Do them now and you’ll be ready for the big day with no last minute rushing around!

Honestly, that’s usually me. But not this time. This time I am ahead of the game. Oh yeah!
11 Red, White, and Blue Sewing Projects
By the way, did I ever tell you how much I love the 4th of July? It’s my favorite holiday. Well, next to Christmas. Okay, it’s my second favorite holiday. But still, it’s really high up there!
The point is, I love it. It brings back so many awesome childhood memories of entire days picnicking with mom’s fried chicken & potato salad while we waited for the evening fireworks & dad to jump out of an airplane.
I swear I’m not lying.
My dad was a paratrooper in the Army and every Independence Day we watched him and his troops jump out of an airplane as part of the festivities. Usually right before the fireworks went off.
So, whenever I see an American flag or anything red, white, and blue for that matter. I always think of my dad and all the fun I used to have every Fourth of July as a kid.
Boy, do these patriotic sewing projects bring up some great memories. Bring on the smiles!
