Autumn Sewing Projects

For everyone living in the northern hemisphere, Autumn is definitely here now.  Fast approaching too are the fun family events and holidays of Halloween and Thanksgiving.  We thought we'd compile some fun autumn sewing projects to help you prepare.

Along with myriads of memories that autumn brings, two things that strike me the most about the season are the colors and the autumn leaves. The bright and bold hues have a lot of influence on the sewing projects that I undertake.

Here are 8 fun and interesting autumn sewing projects that will help brighten up your days with the colors of fall.

Pom Pom Pillows

These pillow would bring a cozy and warm feel to your interiors. The design it the photo is using a rather stark Damask style print. Instead you can try using fabric with autumn colors like red, orange and brown. Make sure that you use fabric like velvet, satin or even silk to bring in that rich and warm feel. If you are planning to sew this interesting pillow, you can find the pattern here Pom Pom Pillows.

I made eight fall mug rugs with just the pumpkin as hostess gift for the bunco girls when I was the hostess in September. They loved them as I did. Went together nicely. Thanks for the pattern.
