The weather is heating up, grill covers are coming off and lemonade stands are in full swing. It can only mean one thing: summer is here! And here at the We Like Sewing headquarters, we’re ready to celebrate the only way we know how: with a fresh set of patterns that are perfect for every summer adventure ahead. Start by planning two sewn items that are practical and ideal for travel: the Bon Voyage Mini Travel Bag and the Snack Time Reusable Sandwich Bags. Whether you’re headed overseas or planning an action-packed staycation, both sewn essentials are just what you need for your next trip or picnic. Getting ready for the beach? Don’t forget to sew your own chic summer caftan that doubles as a trendy swimsuit cover up. From a festive sewn 4th of July pillow and a summer-themed quilt block to a fun refashion project that transforms last year’s jeans into cool new shorts, you’re bound to find something to love in this new issue.
