1. Sew Easy Halloween Decor
As the intense warmth of summer’s heat slowly gives way to the welcome change of autumn breezes, thoughts turn to pumpkin harvests, bountiful market stands of garden produce, fall craft fairs, leaves changing to golds and rust colors and the upcoming mystery and shadows of Halloween festivities.

2. Simple T-Shirt Makeovers
The comfortable-to-wear, go-everywhere casual unisex top is hands down the T-shirt. Modern day tees have become the equivalent of walking product advertisements, designer name branding and for sending personal messages about the wearer’s politics, social attitudes, sports, music and much more.

3. Forever Essential Sewing Basket
Spot a fabric-lined sewing basket filled with sewing notions and it evokes a call to our inner sewing muse. Whether new or an endearingly inherited one with a jumble of well worn needles, fading threads, mixed buttons and perhaps a makeshift pin cushion is a sewer's delight to own and cherish.

4. Quick and Easy Fall Sewing
Our sewing endeavors change with the seasons of course but the time between the autumnal equinox and the winter solstice are especially enjoyable when considering sewing projects. With summer at an end, at least in the northern hemisphere, cooler weather can infuse a sewer with renewed inspiration.

5. Memory Pillows and Keepsakes
Memory pillows to sew in honor of a loved one or to preserve memories from an enjoyable vacation, graduation, holiday times or family and friends gathering, can become charming keepsakes to hold and cherish. They are easy to sew, and can be especially comforting reminders of times past.

6. Burlap Fabric
Burlap fabric is one of those durable, functional, widely used in industry products, yet has much value in DIY home décor projects that never seem to go out of style. Create a burlap bubble wreath or message/organizer board and draw, paint, stencil, stamp or print to personalize this unique fabric.

7. Autumn Sewing Ideas
Nature’s timeless colors of autumn – shades of reds, golds, oranges, browns, and tans nearly invite us to our sewing work-spaces. Now is a great time to add to our fall wardrobe and home décor with a few quick to sew items.

8. Bean Bag Toss Game
The roots of the bean bag toss game, known in times obscure as Cornhole, is originally a lawn game where players take turns throwing small bags of beans onto a raised area that has a hole cut into it. Why not sew small colorful bean bags for a delightful children's game to enjoy the last of summer?

9. Craft Fair Projects to Sew
The beginnings of autumn bring many delightful craft fairs. Whether church, senior center, or high school supported, craft fairs offer an easy going shopping spree filled with creative homemade gifts, ingenious designs from easy to find local materials and textiles and plenty of seasonal home décor.

10. Quick Summer Sewing Ideas
The heat of summer certainly slows down the pace of many things, including our sewing efforts. Special occasions and more pop up on our calendars on a regular basis despite the scorching heat. Finding a time-saver sewing project may be just the right inspiration needed for a creative sewing session.
