      Hello!  I’m a new member and I’m a caregiver for a woman with dementia.  We’ve tried many crafts, but sewing is all she can do.  We’ve made a few things, but I’m a beginner sewer myself.  I’m looking for easy patterns, any suggestions?  We’ve done pillowcases, placemats, face masks and heatable rice pouches.

      Good for you for caring for someone with dementia!  My husband had dementia, so I know how tough it can be.

      I thought of apron or some simple bags, but then I googled “easy things to sew” and came up with all kinds of items.  Let me know if you would like some help narrowing them down.

      Ah that helps – using Google instead of Pinterest.  On Pinterest too many things are labeled “easy” when they’re not.

      I’ll browse those; thank you!!

      I’ve never sewn garments before, but bought a pattern for baby clothes – her 4th great-grandchild was born last month!!

      There are a lot of t-shirts.  Raglan tees might be an option.  The hardest part is binding the neckline.
