Make one of these fun fall sewing projects to decorate or warm up your life. There’s so many great things to make!​​​​​​​

I love fall so much. When I was younger Fall always made me think of going back to school so I didn’t really like it. Now that I’m older and not in school, I can fully appreciate the wonderful season that Fall is!

There are two birthdays in our family that come in the Fall, there are so many holidays to look forward to, I love making Halloween costumes, and I love all of the autumn activities and foods.

I put together a big list of fun sewing projects to make for Fall. Which one is your favorite?

What is a PDF sewing pattern?

A PDF pattern is a sewing pattern designed on the computer and organized so that it can be printed on several letter or A4 size pieces of paper.

I love using PDF sewing patterns because if the pattern gets ruined or if my children or I changed sizes, I can always print it again. It’ll never be destroyed since I have a digital version!

How do you use a PDF sewing pattern?

Open the PDF on a computer and click print. When printing make sure that the scaling is set to 100% or no scaling so that the pattern prints at the correct size. Learn how to use PDF sewing patterns.
