Thanksgiving Sewing and a Free Amy Butler Download!

Thanksgiving is coming, and for many people, that means a break from work and school. I don’t know about you, but I have some fairly lofty sewing plans. I probably won’t get to even a quarter of the things I’m hoping to, but a girl can dream, right?

Do you have any projects planned for the holiday break? If you’re looking for some quick and easy ideas, we have a treat for you!

Amy Butler‘s new fabric collection for Rowan Fabrics, Soul Blossoms, will be available in stores in a couple of weeks. Several patterns have been released to correlate with the new fabric collection. One of them – Patchy Jeans – is perfect for stash-busting, and you can download it for free from our site. This download is full of tips and tricks to add a fun pop of color and style to your wardrobe. Whether it’s distressing and patching, embroidery, or beads and buttons, there are lots of great ideas! The techniques are demonstrated on jeans, but I can see a lot of these ideas spicing up a pillow or quilt, too!

I hope you get some crafting time in over the Thanksgiving holiday!
