For all of you guys who love sewing, there are some awesome ways to turn that hobby into a part-time (or even full-time) business. Sites like Etsy are always a great place to advertise your works and wares, but you don’t always have to make complex items just to make a prophet. Sometimes just filling a small niche for a certain set of people is the best way to meet a demand and make money.
Selling your crafted items is such an awesome side hustle that I thought I’d share some great sewing projects done by awesome bloggers so you could try your hand at it. So feel free to check out what I’ve found below and let me know what you think!
10 Minute Laptop Sleeve
Found from Crazy Little Projects: See Source Below
Practically everyone has a laptop and they’re always looking for a way to stand out from the crowd. So if you make your own unique pattern, you’re giving buyers an actual option to be different.. In a cute way. Also, is really simple (seriously), so that’s a huge plus in my lazy book.
City Backpack Diaper Bag
Found from Craftster: See Source Below
Ok guys, HEAR ME OUT. This may seem like a strange thing to make and sell on Etsy, but after seeing my sister go through three pregnancies I realized how much of a legitimate niche this is. Like there are so many moms who will spend top dollar for well made and thought out diaper bags. Definitely something to think about.

This has to be the cutest back to school gift I’ve ever seen! So many people (whether they want it for themselves or their child) would love something like this. It’s easy and a great niche to fill!

Everyone who has ever had earbuds understands the struggle of putting them in your pocket for one second and then taking them out to see that they’re tangled in 10 different ways. So why not create a cute little pouch so people don’t have to put up with that anymore.

DIY Drawstring Travel Bag

People are always looking for cute and different ways to carry their belongings around with themselves. Whether they’re a mom or a college girl, this is a great and easy item to create.
If you’ve always loved to sew and the idea of selling your crafts online appeals to you, then this is a a great side hustle to think about. Why not make something that’s your passion into an actual job (or business). There’s no need to sink so much of your time and life into a job that isn’t going to get you anywhere in 10 years down the road. So why not do some research and go after what you really love?
