Editor’s Note October 2022

Caitlin Eaton

Fall is officially here! While I love donning a sleeveless summer dress, autumn is still my all-time favorite season to dress for. I love sweaters, layering, boots, cute plaid outfits — you name it! With this brand new issue of We Like Sewing, we channeled our love of fall and all things spooky to bring you a festive issue full of fall favorites you’ll love to sew. Start with a pre-Halloween celebration and make the most adorable Halloween pillow: the Gone Batty Quilted Throw Pillow. Featuring appliqué letters, skeleton fabric and a cauldron of bats, we can’t think of a better pillow to don your sofa this season. In search of more chilling décor? Look no further than the scary-cute Frightfully Frankie Halloween Home Décor project. This charming little Frankenstein is the perfect companion to this year’s candy bowl. 

Next, dress to impress with a vintage-inspired fall midi skirt that’s perfect for every apple and pumpkin-picking adventure. Ready to quilt some more? Our gorgeous Riverbend Jelly Roll Log Cabin Quilt is ideal for adding a country-chic look to your home. Plus, who doesn’t love a new jelly roll project? 

Get ready for the gift-giving season ahead by whipping up your own sewn gift bags. Have fun showing off your favorite holiday fabrics with these handmade bags that can be reused year after year. And finally, level up your sewing skills with our brand new tutorial: How to Sew Princess Seams. 

Happy Sewing,
