Something about dropping temperatures, the smell of mulled spices and the orangey, golden hues painting the trees this time of year gets us in the mood to make aaaaaaaall the crafty things. Whether it’s sprucing up the home with an autumnal refresh, or a new cut-and-sew Halloween mask to spook the trick-or-treaters, we’ve found every Halloween craft under the Harvest moon for you to make this fall!
1. Cut and Sew Vintage Halloween Treat Bags
DIY Vintage-inspired treat bags? Yes, please. See the tutorial here.
Welcome back to part two of our Alison swimsuit sew along with Sport Lycra! This type of fabric is just perfect to use for sewing up your own swimwear, and the Alison swimsuit sewing pattern is a great option since it is a one piece and can really show off the awesome print you chose for your fabric!
We left off last time in part 1 of the Alison Swimsuit Sew Along sewing the crotch seams together, and now it’s time to finish off the rest of the bodice. Grab your bust piece since we will be starting there.
We’re thrilled to introduce our latest featured designer, Atlanta-based Sarah Marks, also known as Thirdhalfstudios. She has a way of creating playful art with unexpected items and a large dose of imagination. Read our interview with her and find out what keeps her inspired!
Want to turn your table into a spooky setting for a Halloween feast? Heidi Kenney (our resident Queen of Halloween) is stopping by the blog today to share the how-to, using her cut-and-sew placemat template available in the Spoonflower Marketplace.

Pick a FQ or yard up in Eco Canvas fabric, then follow her easy steps below to sew up these adorable placemats for a table-scape that’s fit for a family of goblins and ghouls!
