Make something new for you, or gifts for friends. You’re going to love our new collection of fabulous patterns.
Dear Sewing Superstar,
Bring on the bright, bold colors of fall and the fun of Halloween decorating! Need a new statement piece for the fall? We’ve got you covered. Want to make something a little spooky? No problem.
Our October Issue also has patterns that celebrate the classic colors of fall, a quick project for those of you who like to plan ahead, and a Sewing 101 tutorial worth trying.
The patterns in our October 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!
Our Favorite Haunting Designs
Let’s start with the cutest & creepiest of all: our Frightfully Frankie Home Décor. He’s a little bit ragdoll, a little bit decoration — and a lot of Halloween adorable! Frankie is a great project to help you use some of your scrap fabric and show off your creativity. No two Frankies will look alike —add your own embellishments to make him uniquely yours. The project also show you how to create two fabric pumpkins so Frankie has somewhere cozy to sit — maybe as a Halloween dinner centerpiece?
One of the fun parts of the changing seasons is changing the throw pillows, am I right? Make our Gone Batty Quilted Throw Pillow to get into the Halloween spirit. There’s more to this pillow than meets the eye at first glance. A methodical applique process will give you a stunning finished pillow that you’ll be proud to show off.
Projects Worth Falling For
Now, some people will say it’s too early to start planning for Christmas gifts. I am not one of those people. It’s never to early to be prepared for gift-giving, and sewing up some gift bags now means less holiday stress down the road. Use your most festive fat quarters to make our Colorful Christmas Sewn Gift Bags. This is a great project, even for beginners. Sew your bags with just one fabric, or make variations in two fabrics. Make a patchwork bag. The possibilities are virtually endless!
If getting creative with gift bags leaves you in a quilting mood, break our your brightest jelly rolls and make our Riverbend Jelly Roll Log Cabin Quilt. Jelly roll precuts make it easy to build your log cabin blocks in a zig-zag pattern to create the feel of a flowing river. Use this classic quilt pattern to make a real statement piece that will keep you warm, cozy, and colorful all through fall.
Fall weather marks the beginning of midi skirt season, and we have a real stunner for you! Our October Country Fall Midi Skirt pattern lets you show off fall colors in a brilliant plaid. And you’ll love the detailing on this garment, from the front placket with hook and bar closures to the box pleats around the waist. This simple skirt is full of vintage charm!
We all have a lot of sewing skills in our sewing toolbox, but sometimes a refresher is helpful — especially if it’s s technique you don’t use a lot. Whether you do tons of dressmaking and tailoring or you’ve been avoiding a tailoring task for ages, check out our tutorial Sewing 101: How to Sew Princess Seams. It walks you through the steps to make beautiful new garments or to add new life to a dress that needs a little TLC.
It’s a big, wide sewing and crafting world out there, and cosplayers are enthusiastic participants. Cosplay isn’t really a trend; it’s an art form all its own. Read Inside Cosplay: Redefining Costume Design to learn more about the time and effort cosplayers dedicate to creating detailed, dazzling costumes.
You don’t have to be an expert at sewing to make any of the projects in our October Issue. With enthusiasm, attention, and a seam ripper, you might want to put more than one project on your list. Every pattern in this issue includes a detailed template, pattern notes, and a complete list of the tools and materials you need to succeed. Get ready to make something new and beautiful!
