Here are just a few of my favorite booklets and patterns offered by Leisure Arts:

Cozy Wool Applique Pillows eBook – $9.99
from: Leisure Arts, Inc.

If you have never done applique before, this is a great way to start.  Lots of fall colors and the projects are small, simple pillows.  I bet you are addicted to applique in no time! Seven farmland scenes invite your admiration on six pillows and a box lid. Just for fun, designer Elizabeth Angus also included an eighth design–a pillow featuring pretty heart appliques.

Quick and Easy Dresses to Sew eBook – $7.99 (Regularly $9.99!)
from: Leisure Arts, Inc.

This book has a sweet selection of little girl dresses to choose from.  Simple and thorough instructions will guide you. With these designs by Laurie Malm, you can quickly make an entire wardrobe of little warm-weather dresses! Most are as simple as sewing plain seams and cuffs or ruffles, while using binding to finish the armholes and shoulder ties. For an older girl, there’s also a handy little bag that’s so adorable when made to match her dress. Choose the fabrics that will make her smile, and get ready to whip up her favorite new outfits! through creating a special dress!

Sew Magical for Kids eBook – $9.99
from: Leisure Arts, Inc.

Laura Lee Burch has developed 25 toys and gifts that families can create with love and hand down from one generation to the next. My favorite of course is the cute octopus on the cover, but there are lots of fun patterns to choose from in this eBook!

Reindeer For Hire Sewing Patterns ePattern – $4.99
from: Leisure Arts, Inc.

Oh, now these are just cute!  I just love these handcrafted raggedy reindeer dolls!  With their twig antlers, red bead noses so bright, and old-timey outfits, who could possibly resist them? Patterns and full instructions are included!

Humpty Mummy Sewing Pattern ePattern – $2.99
from: Leisure Arts, Inc.

And how about Halloween decorations!  Humpty Mummy would be a cute addition to your decor.  Wouldn’t he look sweet in a wreath?  Sturdily stuffed with parakeet gravel and fiberfill, he’ll be a big hit with the kids, too. And you can make Humpty Mummy safe for even small children by substituting embroidery stitches or using colored pencils to replace his button eyes. Patterns and full instructions are included.

Little Lamb Pillow Crochet Pattern ePattern – $2.99
from: Leisure Arts, Inc.

Need a cute shower gift?  I just love this sweet little lamb pillow.  Featuring the Loop Stitch, the lamb is crocheted using worsted weight yarn and a size F (3.75 mm) hook. He has 15 mm blue eyes and an 18 mm pink nose. To make the pillow safe for very young children, features could be done with embroidery.

Kitty Blanket Fleece Sewing Pattern ePattern – $2.99
from: Leisure Arts, Inc.

Another sweet idea for a baby gift!  Baby’s catnap will be a cozy one when he or she is wrapped in this hooded blanket featuring an appliqued kitty face. Full-size patterns included. The appliques are sewn by machine. The eyes are embroidered with French knots; the whiskers are long straight stitches.  Love this!

See anything you like?  There are these fun patterns and many, many more at Leisure Arts.  Personally, I have a thing for the fall applique pillows and I’ve already loaded up my digital cart with that pattern.  I love sewing in the fall and winter.  Seems like a perfect time to take on new projects.  Take advantage of the sale and celebrate National Sewing Month!
