Everything’s Coming Up Roses

Dear Sewing Superstar,

The holidays are in the rearview mirror, spring is on the horizon, and with it comes new plans, new hopes, and new sewing projects! This month in We Like Sewing, you’ll find chic, fresh patterns for two must-make bags, a stylish scarf with a secret, two gorgeous home décor projects, and more!

We’re continuing our organization theme (dare we mention spring cleaning?) with versatile storage cubes that’ll come in handy all over the house. And get 7 tips for sewing with velvet; it’s one of our favorite fabrics—so luxurious, but not always the easiest to work with. We love demystifying sewing secrets for you!

And did you know that sewing brings hidden health benefits? We know we love sewing, but it can actually improve your mental and physical health—if that’s not a win-win, we don’t know what is!

The February issue features the fab tips and techniques you always get from us, plus perfect projects to take your sewing skills to the next level!

It’s In the Bag

A new bag always lifts the spirits, and when you make your own it’s even better! We’ve got two bag projects for you this month in two decidedly different styles: The Mod to the Max Crossbody Bag is an on-trend everyday (and travel!) bag sewn in striking black and white vegan leather, although of course you can make it in whatever colors and fabrics that strike your fancy.

Speaking of fancy, Everything’s Coming Up Roses is just that—a romantic, retro-inspired bag that will stylishly accompany you to a Valentine’s dinner. This beginner project is one you can make today and use tonight! You’ll love the updated take on the classic dowel bag.

Stellar Storage Solutions

Storage is always an issue for sewists, and we want practical and stylish solutions. Enter the Minimalistic Chic Cube Storage Baskets. These cute containers conquer the clutter in your sewing studio and beyond.

Take a (Monochromatic) Moment

Put those grays, blacks, whites, and creams to work in the Between the Lines Windmill Quilt and create a monochromatic masterpiece for your home. The windmill blocks include a single-color center, so search your stash for monochromatic tone-on-tone fabric to incorporate, too. This project is a vision of light and shadow.

Hipster Pocket Scarf

The Hipster Pocket Scarf solves a common challenge—what to do with your cash, cards, keys, or phone when you have no pockets and don’t want to carry a bag. You can store them in the handy zipper pocket of the Hipster Pocket Scarf and have your hands free while you run errands or go on a walk! And with your must-haves safe in the pocket, you can leave your bulky bag at home. Sewn with knit fabric, this infinity scarf pattern is equally suited to your sewing machine or serger. This is a great project for practicing your zipper skills. The Hipster Pocket Scarf is the perfect fit.

And that’s not all—find out how your favorite hobby can improve your health (really!). Yes, the time you spend sewing and quilting is providing a boost to your health—our feature on the unexpected health benefits of sewing is a must-read.
