In our fourth issue: A question was recently posed to a group of people: "What words come to mind when you think of summer?" The most popular responses were swimming, cookouts, and gardens. Even though most of us have outdoor activities on our minds, we still want to sew, just not time-intensive projects. That's why we're excited about this issue of Sew-it...today--it's perfect for summer stitching!
On p. 30, we feature a trio of cushions (Flirty Pillows) that are also great for extra seating around the patio. Sew some cute string bags (Hold Everything, p. 8) for hauling small stuff to the beach. Our stash tablecloth and checked napkins (Backyard Picnic, p. 50) will set a perfect scene for a barbecue. And for those who love digging in the dirt, our deep-pocket apron (Garden Helper, p. 38) makes it easy to keep garden tools close and handy.
Kids going away to camp? Create a travel kit from a spare washcloth (Overnighter, p. 12). Rainy days? Stitch up our Roundabout quilt (p. 54) in a single relaxed weekend, or make bright fish blocks (Playing Hooky, p. 58) from batik scraps. You'll adore our Little Birdie pincushion (p. 40)--it's purse-perfect for hand stitching during leisurely vacation moments.
This issue is packed full of clever and useful patterns, informative lessons, and even some unique tips for what to do with leftover bits of thread and skinny selvage strips! Enjoy the extended daylight hours spent with family and friends. We wish you safe travels, much fun in the sun, and a renewed creative spirit!To see what else is in this issue, see our latest issue page.
