WLS February issue

Sew something springy today!

Pretty and practical patterns are here in our February Issue!

At Mequoda Publishing Network we are working with We Like Sewing to stitch a bouquet of flowers that will never wilt, quilt a spring-themed table runner, or make a dreamy pillow or custom pillowcases! Not every sewing project has to have a definitive purpose. It’s always good to leave a little room for whimsy. This month, the projects range from delicate embroidery to practical pillowcases and a timely table runner. Here’s a peek inside the February Issue of We Like Sewing!

Love is in the air with our Heart and Soul Throw Cushion. I have a friend who just loves hearts, so she’d be ready for this pattern any time of year, but with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, why not make a little seasonal décor? Give your bedroom or living space a pretty pop of color with this sweet heart!

When St. Patrick’s Day rolls around, you’ll be ready in the decorating department with our Clover Patch Quilted Table Runner. Spruce up your dining room table with this lovely table runner inspired by the Emerald Isle. This pattern is fat quarter-friendly and easy enough for beginning quilters to take on.

You’re probably looking forward to spring just like I am. While I’m still planning my garden, I’m taking a little time to bring the feel of nature indoors with this cheerful Spring Bouquet Floral Embroidery Pattern. This beginner-friendly pattern features a delicate bouquet of simple spring flowers. Create this pattern with simple stitches, then show it off in an embroidery hoop or add the design to a t-shirt or tote bag.

Projects for your bedroom can be both pretty and practical. Polish your pillowcase-making skills with our Bedtime Beginner Friendly Pillowcase Tutorial. This is a great project for beginning sewists to build their sewing skills. Treat yourself to a new set of custom pillowcases with a professional finish!

For a great beginning quilting project, try our Charmed Life Triangle Quilt Block. Fat quarters are ideal for this project. Use a single block to create a bold throw pillow, or make your first block the beginning of a bright baby quilt. Customize the color scheme to suit you!

We include a different tutorial at the beginning of each issue of We Like Sewing; February’s tutorial is 9 Simple Steps for Hand-Tying a Quilt. Hand-tying a quilt is a traditional and creative finishing technique that appeals to quilters of all experience levels. See how you can put this accessible quilting technique to use with minimal materials. The tutorial walks you through the whole process, step by step, with plenty of options for the tying material.

All these projects are designed to brighten your day and add more coziness to your home! Celebrate the spirit of the holidays and warm up to winter with this month’s projects. Let’s get sewing today!
