To complement the simple Halloween banner I made last week, how about a super quick fabric scrap Halloween garland! It took me less than a hour to make this but I love how it turned out. I’m all about fast and easy holiday sewing – we just pulled out the handmade astronaut costume I made my son and it took me about the same amount of time as this. You could make this as long or as short as you’d like; I don’t have a fireplace mantel to display garlands on but it sure looks cute up on the wall. I can totally picture this in Christmas fabric, and Valentine’s Day too!

If there’s one thing I always want more of, it’s sleep. My kids live to pounce on me and wake me up, or come ask me questions when my husband is kindly letting me sleep in. I thought maybe a sleep mask would help me ignore them, so I’m sharing this free sewing mask pattern! This would be a great project to sew if you’re taking any trips soon, or maybe the perfect stocking stuffer for any friends who have little people poking them awake.
Holiday decorating has never been one of my strong suits, but as my kids get older and more excited about Halloween, I want to be a little more festive! I’m not keen on spending a ton of time on things that will only be displayed for part of the year, so I whipped up these easy Halloween banners while they watched a movie. It took longer to design the “Boo!” than it did to sew the banner! This tutorial is being shared as a part of a Halloween Make-A-Palooza hosted by Shelly at Coral & Co, so be sure to scroll to the bottom and see what other bloggers have made.
After sewing up 4 free pincushion sewing patterns earlier this month, I ended up with a huge list of other pincushion tutorials that I just loved! Instead of trying to sew them all, I figured I’d put them in one list post to share instead. Pincushions are such a fun gift to sew, they use up scraps really well, and are usually quick and easy. Between patchwork, english paper piecing, foundation paper piecing, embroidery, and felt accents, I think everyone will be able to find a tutorial that they just love!
