Upcycle a thrift store find. Create a custom skirt. Quilt a country throw.
Dear Sewing Superstar,
Brisk mornings, bright leaves — ah, the feel of fall coming on! Be ready for all that autumn has to offer with some fall-friendly patterns tailored to you!
Our September Issue has patterns for custom clothing items, seasonal quilts, and cute ornaments you can make for the holidays or another special occasion!
The patterns in our September 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!
Every sewist has to start somewhere with quilting. What better way to start than by repurposing a couple t-shirts into a quilt or quilted pillow? Our How to Make a T-Shirt Quilt Pillow provides all the steps you need to make a cozy t-shirt quilt or pillow. You provide the t-shirts; we’ll provide the guidance. This is just the project to try if you want to explore quilting or help out a budding quilter.
What do you do with vintage fabric? If you find an inspiring stack at a thrift shop or an estate sale, should you just scoop it up? Well, you’ll want to read The Thrifty Sewist’s Guide to Vintage Fabric so you know just what to look for — and what to look out for!
Feeling inspired by some thrift store finds? Maybe you found a sweater that you are sure has potential — if only you can restyle it, just a little. Well, you know you can do that with just a little effort! Try our Cobalt Sweater to Cardigan Refashion project, and transform an old pullover into a stunning and stylish new cardigan!
One of the timeless joys of fall is corduroy. There’s no other fabric with quite the same look and feel. Make yourself a fun and flirty mini skirt styled just for you when you follow the styling directions in our Mulberry Corduroy Mini Skirt project. This flared quarter-circle skirt is a real stunner, and includes front button details, plus a hidden zipper! Get some great experience with pattern drafting as you make this skirt that pairs perfectly with tights and boots for chic cole-weather style!
Quilted Fall Favorites
If you love Halloween as much as we do, get a jump start on spooky season with our In the Shadows Halloween Throw Quilt. This is your chance to show off your favorite Halloween fabrics in a bright and bold floating block pattern. We don’t want to scare you, but you might not want to put it away when Halloween’s over!
Every beginning quilter needs a project that’s easy enough to complete but that has a certain wow! Factor. You’ll find that in our Mountainside Bear Paw Wall Hanging. This classic quilt block is wall hanging-worthy with modern shades of slate gray, cobalt blue, and citron — and you can make it using fat quarters! With a finished size of 28” square, it’s a perfect way to fine-tune your quilting skills and then show them off by hanging it up where everyone can admire it!
With fall fast upon us, can winter be far behind? Cottagecore rules with our adorable ornament patterns! Turn your home into an enchanted winter woodland with our Forest Fox Woodland Ornament. This easy pattern is easy to customize for Christmas with its jaunty hat and little present tied with a string. Or make it your way for a special gift-wrap topper! You’ll sharpen your hand sewing skills with this project, and you’ll have an adorable ornament that’s sure to become a keepsake!
If one hand-sewn ornament is adorable, why not two? Handmade decorations like our Oh So Deerly Woodland Ornament make for sentimental decorations that can be handed down from generation to generation. You’ll love the darling winter scarf on this little deer, and its twinkly eyes and sweet smile. And it’s so easy to make, you could make one for everyone in the family, with a custom scarf for each one! It’s an easy pattern, and all you need is a little time and a little stack of felt.
You don’t have to be an expert at sewing to make any of the projects in our September Issue. There are projects here for you, for show, and for sharing. 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!
