5 Fall Table Runners

Hi, Makers! 

Who else is excited that Fall is here?! My favorite part of the season is Pumpkin Spice everything, I am one of those people that stock up for the whole year! But other than food, one thing I especially love during this time is the warm colors and decorations I see during this time of year. My mom recently bought her first home, and it was nothing less than fun to decorate for the season! Gathering pumpkins, sewing some table-mats, and hanging our reef on the door. 

It's also that time of year that we gather together as a family, sit down a large dining table, and share stories all night. Sewing has changed the way I decorate things, and I am sure other makers out there really look forward to creating things for their loved ones. It's true what they say, every stitch that goes into our projects, holds sentiments of love and appreciation. So today, I really wanted to share with you some of my top 5  favorite table-runner free patterns you can make this year! Create new memories with some fall-themed fabrics and at your next gathering, make that dinner table centerpiece an unforgettable one!

Picking out a costume is one of the best parts about Halloween..okay, second to eating bags of candy and chocolate, of course! Since we love to create things with our hands, we all know that making a handmade costume is much more fun and makes it, extra special too. That’s why we decided to create these DIY Halloween costumes for you that are easy to sew, especially when it’s a last-minute idea! Featuring our rayon and knit substrates, we were inspired by classic and iconic Halloween costumes that everyone loves. Since you still have some time before October 31st arrives, we hope these looks inspire you to create something, extra spooky!

Feeling Grateful: Kushukuru Collection

Kushukuru-Banner_600px
"My inspiration comes directly from my life, mostly, and my experiences throughout. When creating collections for fabric, paintings, illustrations, and everything, I draw on my life, memories, feelings, and messages that I’d like to share with myself and with the wider world. I’m also deeply inspired by the natural world and could draw and paint animals forever and never get tired of it!" - Jessica Swift

It's always so inspiring to learn where our designers gather their inspiration for a fabric collection. After the unexpected passing of her husband last year, our designer Jessica Swift received an overwhelming amount of love that inspired her to create fabrics that celebrated life compassion, family, and community. In Swahili, "KUSHUKURU" means gratitude which became the heart of this collection.

Kushukuru offers several substrates from quilting cotton (featured above) to also two rayon prints, and two knit prints....so there's plenty of options to choose for all kinds of projects...especially for kiddies!

In this Kushukuru Fabric Lookbook, you’ll discover tons of sewing projects that we put together along with Jessica herself and some talented makers. Hope you enjoy every page!
