Sew a fun and thrifty Fall project today!

Let’s celebrate the arrival of Autumn! Make yourself a new maxi skirt, sew a custom leather wallet, craft a perfect pumpkin and more!

Add some flair to your fall wardrobe with our Goldenrod Fall Maxi Skirt. Maxi skirts are the essence of comfort, versatility, and style, and this new pattern by designer Lauren Merciris gives you the option to add a button closure down the front or use a simple elastic waistband.

Celebrate the colors of fall with a new quilt block that’s a perfect project for new quilters and beyond. Our Autumn Abundance Dutch Windmill Quilt Block pattern is a traditional pattern that all quilters should have in their repertoires. Make it with precuts like fat quarters and fat eighths to make a stunning 16-inch square block. Turn it into a throw quilt or an eye-catching pillow.

Think you can’t sew leather at home? Think again. Designer Don Morin shows you how to make his Classic Leather Men’s Wallet in a detailed, in-depth tutorial. This wallet is designed with all the best features in mind: compact, but with a large capacity. This sleek and stylish wallet makes a great gift!

A change of seasons calls for a new keychain. Dig into your precut stash and pick a pretty pattern from a fat eighth and make our Mad for Mushrooms Fat Eighth Key Fob. It’s a convenient size — just big enough to keep your keys visible, room to hang it on a hook, clip it to a carabiner, or slip it on your wrist. Make one for yourself and more for friends.

When fall rolls around, you know it’s pumpkin time! Make our Easy Fall Fabric Pumpkins in two different sizes — complete with wool felt leaves and real stick stems! What a great fall decorating idea!

Adventurous beginner and intermediate quilters will have fun making our whimsical Harvest Pumpkin Patchwork Wall Hanging. The pattern features classic patchwork for the pumpkin and charming detail along the borders. Celebrate Fall with some colorful Autumn décor!

We all know that what goes around comes around, so we’re just going to roll with it. Our skill-building menu this issue includes Fab Flares: How to Alter Jeans. You don’t have to spend big bucks to tap into the latest jeans trend; do it yourself! Our tutorial walks you through every step of helping get your groove on.
