I don’t know about you, but September always seems to be the beginning of the sewing/quilting season to me. I get kind of excited wondering what I can make and share in my studio.
I was looking at some of my already published YouTube projects, many of which also have workbooks and patterns available on my site store for little or no cost. There are several there that will make wonderful Fall and Winter celebratory additions to a home or to make as gifts.
Fall Table Runner
Last year, with the help of my family production team, I made a fall table runner, but we did not get it out until mid November, which was clearly too late. We realized it, but published it anyway for people to enjoy watching at least. This year, you might want to look at this, purchase the workbook/pattern/digital embroidery (all in one package) and make it for your Fall celebrations. It has three how-to videos linked below and the downloadable workbook package below that.
Machine Wool Applique Sampler
This is a fun little project that uses mostly circles and decorative stitching to make a little wall hanging using wool. It is very like what some of you may do by hand, but is all done by machine with some specialty threads. I had so much fun doing this and I think you would too. You can choose your own colors. It does not have a pattern, but if you watch all three videos you really won’t need one. You can probably tell it was inspired by Sue Spargo’s fabulous hand stitched wool pieces.
Kingfisher wool appliqued pillow (by machine)
This project results in a really delightful decorator pillow for your living room or bed room. It would make a really nice gift for someone. Truth be told, I made it with mostly the leftovers from the wool sampler above and a pillow I got from Amazon. It does have two how-to videos on YouTube and a downloadable FREE workbook/pattern on my website shop. Links of all below.
Sew I hope you will take a look at these projects and even make one or more of them. It would really help me if you subscribed to my YouTube and watched the projects. I don’t currently get any money from these on YouTube and very few people have gotten the workbooks/patterns. It would be fabulous if you did watch them all the way through and provided me with comments and suggestions. I will also answer your questions along the way if you decide to make one or more of these projects. Together they are like a virtual class where the instruction is free and the patterns are either free or modestly priced.
Some of my videos are simply sharing my work with you and are there for your viewing pleasure. I am working on one like that now where I am currently making a new show quilt and showing bits and pieces here and there as I do so.
Sew happy everyone! Have fun in your studio!
