Dear Sewing Superstar,

There’s no getting around it: our trip around the sun is bringing us summer-loving dreamers back to earth. As summer winds down, fall is just around the corner. And for a lot of us that means back to work and back to school. But there’s still plenty of time for summer sewing and quilting fun!

The patterns in our August Issue of We Like Sewing range from Easy to Experienced. That means skill and confidence building for beginning sewists, and interesting challenges for the more experienced among us. All these projects are designed to brighten your day, your wardrobe, and your home!

Late Summer Sews

You’ll feel like you’re floating on air in our Tuscany V-Neck Blouse. This romantic pattern features a deep V-neck, flowy handkerchief sleeves, and an almost-off-the-shoulder style. This dreamy blouse will look great with jeans or a structured skirt. Sew this breezy blouse in a lightweight fabric to take advantage of the warm weather still ahead.

Pop quiz: Where’s your TV remote? I don’t know about you, but I need all the organizational help I can get, and I don’t want to spend a ton of money to do it. Forget the store-bought organizers and make yourself our Modern Lounge Armrest Remote Caddy. The pattern is totally customizable to your furniture and the size of your remotes, so you can make just the organizer pockets you need. There’s even a spot to hold magazines! I’ll be making a couple more for friends and family who are always looking for their remotes.

Purr-fectly Pink Kids’ Backpack Pattern

Quilters looking for a fun summer challenge will love the flow and feel of our Summer’s End Drunkard’s Path Quilt Pattern. This is a great time to get comfortable quilting with curves. Use a mixture of light and dark tones to bring this mesmerizing pattern to life.

Autumn Arrivals

When the dog days of August are upon us, we know that school buses won’t be far behind. Surprise a young one in your family with a custom-made, oh-so-cute Purr-fectly Pink Kids’ Backpack. An ideal accessory for the preschool set, this faux fur feline friend is a great alternative to those pricey (and less well-made) backpacks you’ll find at the store. Our backpack features a drawstring closure and custom-size straps. And who can resist that adorable kitty smile?

Spooky Season Halloween Table Runner

Our August Issue also includes patterns to mark the changing of the seasons. If you love changing up your door wreath, we have a new pattern for you that’s down-home cute and upcycle-friendly! Create our Rustic Upcycled Denim Rag Wreath in the morning and have it hanging on your door before dinner. Be ready for Halloween early when you make our Spooky Season Halloween Table Runner. This is a perfect project for confident beginners and you can customize the length to the table you plan to decorate. Our favorite detail of this runner: the adorable bats at each end!
