Perhaps you’re looking for a way to make money from home offering your sewing services but you don’t want to do the regular things, like hemming pants or other seamstress things. There are other options for your sewing services such as making creative, one- of- a- kind pieces of clothing from second-hand stores, or even offer more specialized sewing services such as memory bears.

How to Make Money Sewing from Home

Here are some tips and ideas to get you moving towards the dream of sewing from home and replacing your day job, but first let’s get some housekeeping out of the way.

  • You do NOT need to be an expert at sewing
  • You do NOT need an industrial sewing machine
  • You do NOT need an entire studio
  • Take an assessment of your skill level
  • Be honest with yourself and decide what you really like to sew

Okay, so let’s move on to talk about some fun money-making sewing ideas!

Home Decor Designer

Have you ever went shopping for new pillows or a sheet and blanket set just be frustrated that you could not find the style or design you need? This happens more often than we may know, and by offering custom home decor sewing services you can meet the need.

Custom Bag Designer

You’d think with all of the different bags, purses, diaper bags, and bookbags already on the market that there wouldn’t be a need for another bag designer…well, I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say that there is always room for one more bag designer! So if you’re passionate about designing bags, then go for it!

Custom Children’s Clothing

Custom children’s clothing is in demand from both consumers and pattern companies. You can make money from home creating children’s clothing patterns and licensing them, but also by sewing your own designs for consumers to purchase directly from you.

Memory Keepsake Sewing Services

The memory keepsake sewing business model is rarely spoken of, yet it’s been around longer than I’ve been alive! Essentially, you would offer to take the customer’s favorite pieces of clothing, blanket, shawl, scarf, ties, etc and create unique, custom items such as teddy bears, pillowcases, and even ornaments.
