Halloween is quickly approaching and if you’re like me, you have no idea what you’re going to wear come next Saturday night! I’ll admit, I’m not that big into Halloween but I’m also not going to sit at home when everyone is out having a good time. So…it’s time to put togther a cute costume without breaking the bank!

Sew Spooky Halloween Contest

Sewing is fun all year-round, but in our opinion, nothing beats being able to make our own Halloween costumes every year! Who wants to end up at a Halloween party wearing the same old store-bought Halloween costume? It’s all about being creative and putting our hard-earned DIY skills to work. So we thought it would be super fun to hold a Sew Spooky Halloween Contest to see how creative the BurdaStyle community can get for Halloween!

Fabric Shopping: My 5 Tips

Fabric_main_medium

Hi BurdaStylers, I popped in a new fabric shop in my area yesterday and I got so inspired. Does anyone else get this way? Fabric shopping is probably my favorite thing to do, I always come out of a fabric store with so many new ideas (and a shopping bag of course). As I look through fabrics at a shop sometimes I immediately think of a pattern that would be perfect for it, and other times I just really love the fabric and I have no idea what I want to use it for yet. Read more for my 5 tips when entering a fabric shop…

Remembering 9/11, 14 Years Later

977625_630x354_medium

Today marks the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy in New York City. The BurdaStyle.com team joins the rest of the country in remembering the victims and American heroes of this infamous day in history.

Yesterday morning, a stunning rainbow was seen coming from the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan. The site of this rainbow is being seen as heavily symbolic to the people in New York City who are reminded everyday that 3,000 people were left dead during the worst act of terrorism in history. In the photo, you will see that while the New York City skyline is quite gloomy, the rainbow stands out brightly against a dark day. It seems reminiscent of the Tribute In Light, which are two columns of bright light that memorialized the Twin Towers on September 9th, 2012 and have continued to be used each year to honor those that were lost.

Our thoughts are with the families of those lost as we remember where we were fourteen years ago, and the feeling that life was forever changed on that fateful day.
