Happy September, makers! We're kicking off the month strong with our #SeptemberStunners Campaign, full of projects that will rock your fall season. Now that temperatures are starting to drop, it's time to start planning your next WOW project. That one-of-a-kind project that makes people ask 'how DID you do that?' is just a Leisure Arts book (or kit) away! Keep reading to find your craft category, and start your next stunning project.
Fall is so close that you can almost smell the pumpkin spice in the air. You know what pairs perfectly with pumpkin spice lattes? Knee-high boots and an oversized sweater. These two patterns from Oversized Sweaters (above) are just some examples of the kinds of tops you can make. You can go with a simple stripe, or give free-flowing ponchos a try. Either way, these patterns are super easy to follow, even if you're just starting out in crochet!
If knitting is more your speed, then you can't go wrong with a cute cowl or comfy wrap! The Beginner's Guide To Mosaic Knitting is a great book that shows that you don't have to stick to fall colors to have a cute fall outfit. This Geometric Wrap is bright and bubbly with summer colors, but it's perfect to wrap up in on a cool fall day! If you are a big fan of fall neutrals, then Slow Fashion Fast is your best bet. This Latvian Braid Cowl is perfect for those days when you need light layers. This cowl is the perfect replacement for a light cardigan!
Punch Needle is such a stunning craft, that we couldn't pick favorite patterns for September. You can make any of the patterns from Modern Punch Needle and stun your friends and family with the textured and beautiful designs you create. Just look at that adorable throw pillow! Punch needle has been around for quite a while, but this book takes the craft to a whole new modern level.
If you want some stunning quilted projects for the fall season, look no further! Quilted Wall Hangings is full of fun geometric designs that take quilting to the next level. This Compass of Beauty wall hanging (above) is perfect for a room that needs some pops of color. The pinks and blues perfectly compliment the gray backdrop, making this neutral enough for any style or color palette in a home. The Jelly Roll wall hanging is a great starter quilt project because there's not a lot of hand work involved, its just simple strips and blocks!
Diamond Art is a great project to work on during our September Stunners campaign, because of how dazzling the final product is! We just released a bunch of collections this month, like NFL Diamond Art and Holiday Diamond Art. This Snowman from the holiday line is especially adorable. But if you don't want festive Diamond Art to dazzle this fall, there are a lot of options. We just released this Mermaid and Friends Advanced kit, and it's almost full drill! That means almost every square inch of design is covered in our 13 faceted gems. Any diamond art would be stunning in your house for the fall season (or any season), but we just wanted to shine the spotlight on these two beauties.
