Wrap yourself up in something cozy, or bring some holiday cheer to the table or the tree. You’re going to love our new collection of fabulous patterns.
Dear Sewing Superstar,
Fall is officially in full swing, with crisp, cool air and some leaves still stubbornly hanging on. And with the fresh fall breezes you can feel the eventual onset of winter. It’s closer than you may want to think — which means it’s time to get into gear for the holidays!
Our November Issue includes patterns to bring a handmade festive touch to your table, with placemats you can customize. Of course, we can’t pass up an opportunity to share a couple holiday patterns that are perfect for you or for gift-giving. And we’re not skimping on personal style, either — with stylish projects that won’t break the bank!
The patterns in our November 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!
One of the challenges of the changing seasons is keeping up with changing weather. Well, you can be ready for a brisk morning walk in our Highland Cozy Sew Winter Wrap. If you’ve never worked with double-faced fabric, this is a great entry point. Plus, you’ll get to choose which type of seam you prefer to use with this project. A terrific project for learning, practice, and turning out a stylish garment!
Upcycling isn’t going away any time soon; communities are beginning to ban fiber from the trash, so you might as well make good (re)use of it, right? If you have an outsize pair of jeans lying around, don’t cut them up for rags — make yourself an upcycled skirt! Our Crossover Jeans to Denim Skirt Refashion project walks you through the steps to turn your old jeans into a new skirt. Perfect fun fall fashion!
Christmas Dinner Date
It’s never to early to have your new Christmas décor ready to go. You’ll love the elegance of our Festive Friendship Stars Christmas Table Topper, with its classic friendship star at the center. Smaller friendship stars surround the central design. You can use some of last year’s holiday prints to brighten up the pattern. This is a great project to start now so you’re ready to decorate your holiday table.
What about placemats? Change things up this holiday season with pieced placemats that combine applique and machine embroidery. Our Merry and Bright Machine Embroidered Placemats feature festive words like Merry, Jolly, Bright, and more to bring the holiday spirit to your table. Machine embroidery patterns provide an eye-catching frame for your festive words. No two placemats will be the same (unless you want them to be), so your creative possibilities are virtually endless!
Tis the Season
No Christmas tree is complete without a new ornament (or two!) to celebrate the season. If you’re a beginner with some experience doing needle felting, you’ll love our adorable Sweet Snowgirl Needle Felted Ornament. This is a great piece for expanding your needle felting skills! This ornament features a snowgirl with flowing hair, a cheerful scarf and tiny sewn felt hat, and a classic carrot nose. Customize these ornaments for friends and family!
Show your festive spirit with a new door wreath. With just two fabrics and a bright ribbon, the Season’s Greetings Rod Pocket Christmas Wreath gives you seasonal style with less effort than you’d imagine. The secret: an almost undetectable rod pocket to tuck in a polystyrene wreath to show off your work. This is a fabulous opportunity for you to pick your most festive fabric combo to welcome guests this holiday season. It’s also easy enough to make a few more as gifts.
No expert sewing skills are required to make any of the projects in our November Issue. Each pattern in this issue includes a detailed template, pattern notes, and a complete list of the tools and materials you need to succeed. There are great gift ideas here, but don’t forget to make something for yourself! Get ready to make something new and beautiful!
