Dear Sewing Superstar,
Summer’s a time for fun in the sun, lazy days on the deck, relaxing in the park or at the beach, making time for a home-cooked meal with family and friends. Well, now you can plan to dress for success in a summer fun way, with patterns that make the practical beautiful!
In our June issue, we also have a guide to a classic needlework technique that you can enjoy at home or on the road. Read Embroidery 101: The Essential Beginner’s Guide to get a solid overview of this age-old technique that’s been enjoying new popularity.
What’s your aesthetic? See how the pandemic has made “old” hobbies new again, and created a whole new way for craft-inclined hobbyists to express themselves. Sewing is cool again. See how the cottagecore movement and social media made it happen in our article Sewing and the Pandemic. Then thread up your machine and get ready to sew!
All the patterns in our June issue of We Like Sewing are rated Easy. That means skill and confidence building for beginning sewists, and relaxing, easy-breezy projects for the more experienced among us. All these projects are sure to add a touch of comfort and style to your summer!
Effortless Summer Style
Summertime should include lots of carefree time. Our Sapphire Summer Peasant Blouse is a timeless classic shirt that perfectly captures that summer feeling. Enjoy the romantic and effortless drape of this peasant blouse in your favorite color. This full and flowing top will take you from the beach to a night out with ease.
Need a little something to keep your hair under control when the weather turns hot and humid? Our Knot Your Average Fabric Headband will do the trick. Made with a knit fabric, you can whip up one (or two, or more!) in practically no time. Make some extras for gifts, or to add a splash of color to your favorite outfit.
For the Hostess with the Mostest
Your home is your haven — so why not spruce things up for summer with a little splash of color in the kitchen and beyond? We have a Custom Sewn Apron Tutorial that takes the practical apron to a new, fashionable level. Get beyond the solid color apron and try a fabric with mini prints, geometric shapes, or abstract designs. A fun apron will brighten up your kitchen and your mood, all while keeping your summer clothes safely under wraps. The wrap-around styling makes this apron a cinch to make for a chef of any shape — and it has pockets!
When it’s time to serve up dinner on the deck, make sure the table is covered with a tablecloth that celebrates summer. Our Pink Lemonade Outdoor Umbrella Tablecloth is as practical as it is pretty — and it will give you an opportunity to sew vinyl. When you’re done, you’ll have the prettiest patio table on the block!
Whether you’re heading to the beach or spending the day in the backyard, the little ones in your life need somewhere sweet and soft and hang out. Our At the Seashore Beach Playmat takes the beach blanket to a whole new level. This baby sewing project includes a comfy blanket on its own fabric “beach,” an umbrella motif to celebrate fun in the sun, and an adorable little sea turtle heading out to the water’s edge! This is an easy project you can finish in a weekend (or less!).
When the day is done and you just want to kick back and relax, lean on our Limelight Citrus Throw Pillows. These citrus slices are a breeze to make, and the pop of color will brighten up any seating area with cheerful whimsy. The combination of simple felt shapes and easy sewing techniques make this a perfect beginner project you can finish in an afternoon — just in time for lemonade on the porch swing!
You don’t have to be an expert at sewing to make any of the projects in our June Issue. Every pattern in this issue includes a detailed template, pattern notes, and a complete list of the tools and materials you need to succeed. Whether you’re just starting out sewing or you’re a seasoned sewist, you’re going to love these easy breezy summer patterns. Ready to create something beautiful? Let’s go!
