The weather is still unpredictable but signs of spring are already here: longer moments of daylight, warmer afternoons and sneak peeks of green grass underneath patches of melted snow. If you're like me and find yourself sick with spring fever, look no further than this brand new issue of We Like Sewing. Start by sewing the CUTEST spring mini quilt: the Social Butterfly Mini Quilt Pattern. Featuring four colorful butterfly blocks, this spring project is ideal for precuts like fat eighths and includes two corner pockets for easy hanging on the wall. Next, refresh your wardrobe with this month's cover project: a chic and trendy mini skirt from Traci Anderson. Boasting a waistband with back elastic, this comfortable corduroy skirt features patch pockets and a faux button placket. Pair your skirt with favorite sneakers and a simple tee for a classic spring look. And we haven't forgotten about the home, whether you sew our own vibrant pillow based off of a sunrise or whip up some adorable donut-inspired bowl covers, you'll find cute and unique pieces to upgrade your home's style. From a brand new embroidery project to a complete how-to guide on dyeing your own fabrics, this issue is packed with spring goodies.   READ MORE
