We don’t know about you, but at Brother we love winter for one reason – we can make things using more fabric! Summer clothes and DIY projects are great, but we love being able to DIY scarves, jumpers, blankets, cozy items for the home, and even jackets (for the pros). In preparation for the chilly season, here are 5 DIY ideas for you to whip out your Brother sewing machine and create.
