  • Free Shipping

  • An Amusing Experience!

All you need is a sewing machine.

View multiple photos and videos of the fabrics available. No need to buy an excessive amount of notions when you need just a small amount. Get the convenience of a large format printed copy of the pattern and even large tracing paper to trace your pattern to save your original.  Access to sew-along videos to ensure success! 

The packaging makes the perfect gift box or storage container for all the materials as you are working on the garment. The pattern is available separately too. 

Finding Fabrics

Finding fabrics can be challenging. There are a limited number of brick-and-mortar stores. You can find many fabrics online but you cannot touch and feel the fabrics to ensure they are perfect for your garment. 

We solve this problem for you by finding the fabric. 

To find fabrics, we have traveled to fabric shows and big city garment districts. We examine and test each fabric to make sure it will work with the garment.

Each product page has detailed descriptions, photos and videos showing the fabric.

Why Sew?

Sewing is a fulfilling and rewarding endeavor that has countless benefits, from honing your skills to expressing yourself creatively while connecting with others. Plus in the end, you get a great garment you love to wear with pride!!

Some of the many reasons to love sewing!

  • Perfect fit: Sewing enables you to create clothes that fit your body perfectly, something that can be difficult to find in ready-to-wear clothing.

  • Time well spent: Sewing lets you make time for yourself, allowing you to relax and enjoy the process of creating something with your hands.

  • Constant learning: Sewing is a never-ending learning process that challenges you to develop new skills and techniques, which can be both rewarding and exciting.

  • Community building: Sewing allows you to connect with other sewists and creative people who share your passion for making things by hand, providing a sense of community and support.

  • Pride of ownership: Saying "Thanks! I made it" is a satisfying feeling that comes with sewing your own clothes or home decor items, giving you a sense of pride and ownership.

  • Creative expression: Sewing provides an outlet for creative expression, allowing you to bring your unique ideas to life and express your personal style.

  • Fun! Fun! Fun!

Don't have a sewing machine? You can borrow sewing machines at many libraries and from friends. A decent machine can be purchased for under $200 and less if you can find a used machine.

Here are my sewing machine recommendations

Veronica, Owner and Founder of Sew Amusing

My name is Veronica. I hate shopping for clothes and I wanted to learn how to sew. So I challenged myself to make my own clothing.

I soon discovered one of the most difficult things about sewing is finding the fabric perfectly suited to a sewing pattern. My local fabric stores have a limited selection of apparel fabrics. I would order online and the fabric almost never met my expectations. I ended up with a growing stash of fabric that I could not use. 

As my sewing skills got better, I designed the Uno dress and got so many compliments. I would receive requests to make the dress and that is when it hit me, I could make it easy for others to make the dress for themselves. Sew Amusing was born. 

I decided to offer sewing project kits that come with everything you need to make your garment so that you can get started quickly! I strive to find fabric perfect for the garment and provide many photos on the product page to ensure it meets your expectations. 

I am not a sewing expert, but I love sewing and learning every day. I have worked with experts to finalize an easy-to-sew pattern and find quality fabrics suited for the pattern. 

I am currently developing new patterns and finding new fabrics every day. Please support my small business:
