It’s time for another look at the latest sewing trends with Rachael from imagine gnats. We had a special Costume Trends post earlier this month too! Let us know what you’re sewing in the comments. Are you using lots of flannel? Do you have a new jacket all sewn up for the new season?!

Look for Rachael’s sewing and embroidery patterns in her shop, and find Rachael on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest.
