Now that summer is officially over and the kids are all back to school, it’s time to bust that stash!
For a couple of years, I’ve been participating in the Stashbusting Sew along. It’s a very casual sew along, where the goal is to use up the fabric (and patterns and sewing notions) that you already have. There are themes each month and people are encouraged to participate when they can – which is exactly the type of easy going sew along I like best.
This year, there are guest leaders, and this month it’s me! My theme is outerwear, and seasonal change- both of which are perfect for september sewing.
In my sewing room, the one fabric that keeps piling up is fabric for outerwear – but often it’s “reserved” for big, complicated projects that I never seem to get around to. So my goal this month is to complete some outerwear projects.
But I also wanted to share some cool links for outerwear projects to help get people in the mood. I decided to feature some independent patterns that you might not have spotted before, and to choose ones that are especially quick to make. Hope you see something that inspires you!
