Who likes sewing for holidays? I find any excuse to sew when holidays come around so I can sew for my home, family, and friends. Below, I share some of my favorite sewing tutorials to sew for the Halloween season! Whether you still need to decorate your home with festive decor or you have absolutely no idea what you will dress up as for Halloween, don't worry, I got ya covered! If you need help choosing some festive fall fabrics for your sewing projects check out Steph's post where she talks about 10 Earthy Fall Fabrics You'll Love!
1. Crossroads Pumpkin Trio pattern by Amy Barickman
Mister Domestic has us wanting to make these fabric pumpkins by the dozen. He sewed his pumpkins up using "Canyon Sunset" and "Scarlet Brick" AGF Textured Denim and AGF Crosshatch Textured denim fabric for the stem. I love how the beautiful autumn colors and textured fabric makes these pumpkins come to life. These pumpkins are perfect to use for your dining room centerpieces or placing them any where around the house to create a warm and happy environment! Also this pattern comes in three different sizes which makes it so fun for placing them around your home in interesting ways!
Can't sew or looking for projects you can get the kids involved in? Try making these mini decorative pillows that you can use to decorate your home or use them as festive pin cushions! You have the option of making a scary ghost, a cute jack-o-lantern, or a black cat staring at the moon! I plan to make all three! They are just too cute to resist and are super fast to make!
Here is a great project for all you paper piecers out there! Nothing says Halloween like a spooky bat wall hanging. Mister Domestic made his wall hanging with black and different shades of orange to make his bat take flight. His back ground fabric is the "Laced Remains Hazed"print from Katarina Rocella‘s Recollection collection. I definitely am somewhat a beginner when it comes to paper piecing but I am definitely going to give this pattern a try! This pattern also comes in three different sizes: small 10" x 6" medium 16" x 9" large 24" x 12".
During the holiday months we tend to make a lot more trips to the store, try making a few of these easy reusable tote bags and make sure to take them with you on your next shopping trip! I plan on making a set of five of these bags for my mom and sister and giving it to them as a Thanksgiving present! To me there is nothing better then a handmade gift! Especially a gift as practical as a tote bag!
Fabric gift tags are the perfect touch to any present or treat bag. Looking for a easy scrap buster project? Look no further! Take your gift giving game to the next level by adding a personalized touch to all your handmade gifts!

If your anything like me you never know what to dress up as at Halloween and of course you wait til the last min and all the good costumes are taken. Don't worry you can make your own! Kitty Cat Costume to the rescue! This three piece set will have everyone asking where you bought your costume! We used the "Leopardess" print from Esoterra fabrics!
I hope these patterns have inspired you to sew something up for the Halloween/ Thanksgiving season!
