What Sewing Machine Should I Buy?
We use Brother Project RUNWAY Limited Edition Sewing Machines.
Fall & Autumn Sewing, Crafting, and Quilting is Just Around the Corner..., here are some of my favorite handmade Halloween and Fall decorations you can find around my home, that you can make too with our free patterns and directions!
Abigail & Barnabas the Friendly Ghost Couple made from Quilt Batting and Cheese Cloth
Free DIY Halloween directions for Abigail & Barnabas the friendly ghost couple made from quilt batting and cheese cloth. This charming ghost couple is made to look a little bit scary and old, as if they have come up right from the grave yard. But having Walt Disney World's "Haunted Mansion" ghost ride in mind while I was creating these, I wanted their appearance to be cute as well. So I embellished them with big eyes and a black hair bow for Abigail the smaller ghost, and a black bow tie for Barnabas the ghost who has his arms up to scare people! These friendly ghosts are coffee stained to look old and baked in the oven for a quick dry. Add a little pumpkin to the standing ghost couple and you have yourself a nice Halloween center-piece.
A bowl full of fabric Candy Corn
Learn how to sew these adorable candy corn decorations for the fall time. These adorable fabric candy corns will look great anywhere in your home during the Autumn season!  Buy darker fabrics for a more prim look with these fabric candy corns. Try a rust print for the orange, dark cream for the white, and a golden rod color for the yellow!  They're Sew Easy to make.

County Pumpkin Candle Ring

Free fall sewing pattern: Make Halloween fabric candle rings like pumpkins, candy corn, and a little witch's hat.

With a little bit of time and little bits of left-over fabric scraps from your fall crafting projects, you can make these fabric candle rings to wrap around your favorite fall scented candles in no time at all!


Halloween Black Cat Fur Pillows

How to Make a Cute Halloween Black Fur Cat Pillow from just two pieces of square fabric.

These black fur cat pillows are the cat's meow! All you need are two square pieces of black fabric and some embellishments! They feel right at home in my Halloween black cat collection. I just love how they look and how easy they are to make!


Halloween Character Quilt

Witches, Pumpkins, Ghosts, and Black Cats, oh my... This Halloween character quilt was a blast to make!


 Too Cute 5-Minute Bendable Mummy Doll

Using a doll that is ready made, cheese cloth, and 2 buttons or snaps for eyes, you can make this too cute bendable mummy doll in less than 5 minutes!

Okay, so yes, this is totally cheating because we're using a doll that is ready made, but who cares! He is too cute in all his bendable positions and he only takes 5 minutes to make!

Love to Sew can now be found in Vogue magazine as a part of Vogue’s Trade Directory--the “little black book” for readers interested in the industry.

Here, you can learn how to make near everything featured in our ad (issue for June 2010 UK). The instructions are simple, so even beginners can make it work!




To Learn More About Making Your Own Clothes we suggest Christine Haynes book Chic and Simple Sewing .  It's our favorite sewing book to use for beginners in our studio, and patterns are included.  We also recommend Project RUNWAY DVDs to view as an excellent guide for fashion design.
