Sew-Alongs

Join our experts, Meg Healy, Amanda Carestio, and Kate Zaynard, as they complete a new project! Each sew-along includes the pattern and video tutorials. Plus, each of our sew-alongs start free for a limited time, then become available with a Sew Daily TV Video Subscription.

This fall, we’re also excited to launch something new: our Interactive Sew-Along Fall series. We’re bringing three old favorites out of the archive to sew along with you, giving you the opportunity to ask questions of the instructors and sew along with a community of sewists from all around the world. Unlike our free Sew News and Creative Machine Embroidery sew-alongs, these premium offerings have a registration fee — though you can save a lot by committing to sew along all summer and buying all three as a bundle. Learn more below!

Sew News Belford Backpack FREE Sew-Along

Sew-Along Runs 8/1/2021 – 10/31/2021

Sporty yet chic, the Belford Backpack features a large upper flap perfect for customizing, an easy magnet closure and handy side pockets for whatever you need to keep handy. Sew it in canvas or nylon for a sporty look, novelty print cottons for a kid-friendly bag or velveteen for an upscale finish. Designed by Nicki LaFoille, it features a unique, grommeted drawstring closure. The Belford Backpack blends a stylish design with great basic backpack features for the perfect fall sewing inspiration.

Follow along as Sadie Fox Metter walks you through every step of the process. First you’ll cut all the needed pattern pieces, stitch the straps and flap, and then create and attach the elasticated pockets with either a gathered or pleated edge. Next, you’ll assemble the bag body and lining, learn to box the corners, install the magnet closures, complete the bag upper edge, and attach the flap. Finally, sew on the straps, install the grommets and cord, and your bag is all set for adventuring!

CME Leaf Wreath FREE Stitch-Along

Stitch-Along Runs 8/2/2021 – 10/31/2021

Leaves changing color are one of the prettiest signs of fall. Bring bright colors into your home with two leaf designs — oak and dogwood. The freestanding leaves include a layer of batting to give them extra dimension and a pair of eyelets for stringing on a garland or tying to a wreath. Stitch a selection in classic fall colors for the perfect seasonal décor, or use green fabric to make them work for spring and summer.

Stitch along with Kate Zaynard, host of Sew & Tell podcast and contributor to Creative Machine Embroidery magazine. Kate will walk you through the steps in detail in the included videos, so you can follow along step by step as she makes her wreath. This project is a great fabric scrap-buster and makes an excellent gift!
