2023 Halloween & Fall Sewing Guide
It is that time of year where we reach for our cozy sweaters, a warm cup of apple cider, and savor the yummy goodness of a fall harvest. There are so many ways to enjoy the autumn season. Hiking through a forest when the leaves are turning is one of my favorite ways to delight in the beauty of fall. It is also the perfect season to fill your home with handmade décor in Halloween colors and a palette of amber, green, orangey red, and brown. We have created a sewing guide filled with patterns and tutorials to get you ready for the Halloween and autumn season.
