Fast Fun Fall Sewing Projects by Nancy Zieman | Sewing With Nancy



Everyone seems to busier in the fall. Whether it is back to school, cooler weather, socials, or work, folks are pressed for time. I’ve rounded up five fast fun fall projects to stitch. Say that three times! These projects require minimal fabric and time, perfect for the busy season.

Dresden Sunflower Table Mat

Sew a fast and festive sunflower table topper using fabric scraps and Clover’s Trace ‘n Create Quilt Template—Dresden Collection. In as little as an afternoon, you’ll update your décor in time for the changing season. Use a variety of batik fabrics or choose traditional yellows and browns for this floral favorite. Find the complete tutorial here.

From Fabric Scraps to Mug Rugs

Here’s an ideal sewing project—colorful mug rugs! Create the reversible coaster from your fabric stash; then sit down to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee with a friend. Make this project in fall or winter colors for fantastic handmade hostess gifts! Learn how to make them, here.

Plenty of Pillowcases

If you’ve been thinking about teaching one of your favorite kids to sew, this pillowcase sewing project is truly for beginners. Working in tandem, it’s a project that can be finished in an afternoon or evening. As a word of caution: Once they’re successful stitchers, do not underestimate their love for novelty prints! See how easy this project is, here.

Sew a Spiral Scarf

Not only are scarves so easy to make but they are so versatile to wear. Choosing seasonal fabric can take the same scarf design from winter to spring. One of my favorite scarves is the Spiral Scarf, which I demonstrated on the Sensational Scarves Series (Part One) on Sewing With Nancy. Make this design for yourself or for friends on your gift-giving list. Find the tutorial here.

Pillow for All Seasons

Give your living space a breath of fresh air by sewing new pillows. These boxed-cornered pillows are almost effortless to make. Make the pillow corners crisp with the wrapped technique and add a boxy edge to each of the four corners with this sewing tutorial.
