The nights are drawing in, well they are here in the northern hemisphere anyway, and summer is turning into autumn. I love autumn, especially the crisp bright days when they air is chilly but the sun is bright and the leaves are all shades of oranges and brown. I realise this is a romanticised version and often it’s just grey and damp but we do get those bright days occasionally and they are really special.
To celebrate all things autumnal I’ve joined with a group of my sewing blogger friends to bring a collection of beautiful fall or autumn sewing projects.
Keep you hands warm and cosy on long walks or whilst outside in the cold watching the kids do their sports with these easy to make pocket hand warmers. The covers are removable for washing too which is a bonus.
I’ve also taken a peek on Etsy to see what other Autumnal sewing kits, patterns and ideas I could find to share with you. These are all affiliate links so if you do click through and make a purchase then Sum of their Stories receives a small commission, the price you pay is the same.
This utterly gorgeous autumn embroidery design is available inexpensively from Etsy as an instant download. It’s by the very talented Lucy Lu Dreams and the design comes with a suggested materials list and full instructions.
This buffalo check and pumpkin quilt design is a digital download pattern from the Etsy shop of Carried Away Quilting and I think it’s stunning! Way beyond any quilting skills I have right now but totally aspirational!
This is described by Penny Lane Primitives in their Etsy shop as a pattern for a penny rug or candle mat. I’m not familiar with either as a thing but I do think it’s really pretty! Full instructions are included with the pattern too.
Hawthorn Handmade is an Etsy company that I can personally recommend, I’ve had a couple of their embroidery kits and they have been superb. Great customer service and a great quality product. They have a few Autumn themed kits, just click the photo to buy them:
