Sew Thankful Sunday, September 2019

{I love the idea of “paying it forward”. I think the world would be a better place if we could spread some joy and acknowledgement of good deeds done by others. I try to do that once a month for my Sew Thankful Sunday posts. I highlight some great content that I’ve found on other people’s blogs that I hope will inspire you and reward the originator by bringing traffic to their site. If your blog has been mentioned without your consent, please let me know and I will take you off the current list of featured bloggers.}

Sew Thankful Sunday, September 2019 @ The Crafty Quilter includes back-to-school sewing, maple leaves, quilt alongs, organization tips and a great recipe for fall!

I love September. Leaves are falling, apples are in season, and the temperatures become milder. It’s also back-to-school for many of you with children and a great time to organize and plan for the months ahead. Plus decorating for Fall is my favorite! I’m sure you’ll be inspired for all of these things after reading today’s Sew Thankful Sunday post. Enjoy!

5. We all have our favorite way of binding a quilt, but I’m always discovering little tips from others that can be so helpful. This was the case when I read The Art of Quilt Binding by Vanessa at Lella Boutique. Her quilt bindings are beautiful and you’ll love her technique for sewing it all by machine.

6. I recently discovered the Little Miss Sawtooth Quilt Along by Melanie at Southern Charm Quilts has just begun and is being sponsored by Havel’s Sewing. This will finish up in January, 2020, and it’s perfect for beginners and fun for everyone.

7. I’m excited to tell you about the nonprofit group, Sew Powerful, and their Sew Powerful Purse Project. I first read about this project at Lindsay Sews, and Lindsay shares all of the details so well, that I think you should start there. Basically, “these handy little bags have pockets to hold reusable feminine care products, which allows girls to stay in school all year long and improve their academic performance.” This project is going on my must-make list!

8. The beginning of the school year is a perfect time to whip up a new tote bag. For a great, free pattern check out the DIY Tote Bag with Tablet Pockets Tutorial by Vicky at Vicky Myers Creations. I love how she encourages the upcycling of materials when selecting fabrics.
