Gear up for holiday happenings in our December Issue!

Fun, cozy, stylish projects to wear and share!

Dear Sewing Superstar,

December already? Don’t panic; there’s still time to make marvelous gifts for family and friends (and maybe for you, too, yes?). Make the most of your sewing time with some fabulous project ideas. Here’s a peek inside the December Issue of We Like Sewing!

All Snuggled Up

Upcycling’s all the rage this season, and you can create a unique gift when you make our Snow Shower Upcycled Sweater Scarf. Thrifty sewists will really appreciate this great way to repurpose wool sweaters that have done their sweater duty.

On lazy days around the house, we’re all about the comfort. You will be, too, when you make our Cassie Jogger Pants. These stylish lounging pants are perfect for relaxing around the fire. And they have pockets! This project is perfect for beginners as well as more experienced sewists.

Quick Gifts to Sew Tonight

Your fabric stash is a great place to find inspiration. Use up those leftover pieces of holiday fabric to make Santa’s Snacks Burlap Treat Sacks. These rustic little gift bags are perfect for holding stocking stuffers, candy, or other little holiday surprises. Accentuate the holiday motif by lining your bags with holiday-print fat eighths.

Need to make a gift in a hurry? For tablet users, consider sewing up our Leisurely Scroll Quilted iPad Cover. Use a beautifully printed fabric in your gift recipient’s favorite colors to create a custom-made quilted case with a convenient Velcro closure. As fancy as this quilted case looks, it’s only a few hours of work. Once you’ve made one, you’ll be ready to field requests to make more!

Winter Wonderland

Brighten up your home on a cold winter’s night with our breathtaking Winter Tannebaum Lumières. Make these stunning decorations using vegan leather paper fabric — easy to cut, no fraying, and easy to sew! Decorate each tree with hand-stitched snowflakes and top each tree with a tiny golden star. Put them on your windowsill or mantel for a modern, sleek look.

If you’re looking for something traditional to put under the tree, make our Cozy Log Cabin Quilted Tree Skirt. Use fat quarters in holiday prints, or make a new holiday heirloom and use fabric scraps with special meaning to you and your family. The log cabin pattern will lend a cozy feel to your tree. Finish it off with a handy button closure.

Timely Tutorial & DIY Ideas

We include a different tutorial at the beginning of each issue of We Like Sewing; December’s tutorial is Everyday Luxury: A Beginner’s Guide to Satin. During winter holiday time, you’re bound to be invited to a holiday party or two. If you’re motivated to make something fancy, dive into our tutorial on sewing satin. This fabric is beautiful and versatile — but it can be a little tricky to sew. Work through our tutorial to get comfortable with this luxurious fabric, then pick out a new project!
