Fall Has Arrived!

Fall is my favorite time of the year!  So it is no surprise that making fall items, tops my list!  We have so many fun fall projects to make, for the beginner clear up to advanced sewists. 

Chevron patterns are the hot print right now.  We decided to incorporate classic polka dots with the crisp chevron lines.  What a fun pumpkin this makes!  Make a set of three to add to your fall decor!

With cool weather, it gives me the bug to get my knitting needles out.  (Ok...they are out year round for me!)  Knitting is a great hobby to have especially in the winter, when you have so much time indoors!  I created this fantastic knit pumpkin.  By knitting this, you will learn how to cable, seam, and knit around an existing object.  On the inside of this pumpkin, is a plastic pumpkin.  So much better with yarn all around it!
Halloween is just around the corner!  Everyone needs a fun trick or treat bag!  This one is no exception.  Easy beginner project with teach them the beginnings of how to sew pleats and lining a bag.  Make it a trick or treat bag, or change the fabric to make an everyday bag.  Makes a great Christmas present too!
I don't know about you, but I am always looking for a baby shower present.  This is our latest addition!  A diaper clutch!  It will hold a few diapers and a small package of baby wipes.  What a fun project to whip up and give to that expecting mother.  Learn how to install magnetic closures, sewing on ric rac, buttons and so much more!
