Upcycle for Fun and Flair in our September Issue!

Repurpose thrifted and scrap fabrics into bold fall fashion!

Let’s celebrate the arrival of Autumn! Make yourself a new maxi skirt, sew a custom leather wallet, craft a perfect pumpkin and more in our September issue of We Like Sewing!

Dear Sewing Superstar,

Add some flair to your fall wardrobe with our Goldenrod Fall Maxi Skirt. Maxi skirts are the essence of comfort, versatility, and style, and this new pattern by designer Lauren Merciris gives you the option to add a button closure down the front or use a simple elastic waistband.

Celebrate the colors of fall with a new quilt block that’s a perfect project for new quilters and beyond. Our Autumn Abundance Dutch Windmill Quilt Block pattern is a traditional pattern that all quilters should have in their repertoires. Make it with precuts like fat quarters and fat eighths to make a stunning 16-inch square block. Turn it into a throw quilt or an eye-catching pillow.

Autumnal Accessories

Think you can’t sew leather at home? Think again. Designer Don Morin shows you how to make his Classic Men’s Leather Wallet in a detailed, in-depth tutorial. This wallet is designed with all the best features in mind: compact, but with a large capacity. This sleek and stylish wallet makes a great gift!

A change of seasons calls for a new keychain. Dig into your precut stash and pick a pretty pattern from a fat eighth and make our Mad for Mushrooms Fat Eighth Key Fob. It’s a convenient size — just big enough to keep your keys visible, room to hang it on a hook, clip it to a carabiner, or slip it on your wrist. Make one for yourself and more for friends.

Adventurous beginner and intermediate quilters will have fun making our whimsical Harvest Pumpkin Patchwork Wall Hanging. The pattern features classic patchwork for the pumpkin and charming detail along the borders. Celebrate Fall with some colorful Autumn décor!
