We’re very excited to be working with Jaftex, their four quilt-shop-only brands, and over 350 retailers across the U.S. and Canada as part of the SIY-Sew It Yourself!™ program. It’s all about creating beginner-friendly projects to keep new and returning sewers inspired and motivated. For us, one of the most unique opportunities about this program

Fabric weaving plus decorative stitching-in-the-ditch packs a powerful color punch! Start with one 40-piece jelly roll bundle, and with clever seaming and slicing, end up with two different, yet completely coordinated 20” pillows.

Our super cute, super huggable ladybug! Rather than traditional round spots on her wings, she sports ten pretty appliquéd white hearts. And, there’s a hidden heart on her chest, proving she’s filled with love through and through.

Create a square pillow with an embroidered peace symbol and a coordinating rectangular pillow with the word PEACE embroidered in a gorgeous floral flourish. Our custom embroidery designs are offered as free file downloads.

Our luxurious bow pillow can pretty up your bed or glamorize your sofa. Hesitant to work with faux fur? It’s really quite easy and particularly forgiving thanks to the deep pile that conceals any less-than-perfect stitching.

This tone-on-tone floor cushion falls into the Pouf category but without the super-soft structure that’s traditional. Instead, it features a form-fitting upholstery style cover with clean, modern lines. Time to put your feet up.

Fussy. Cut. It means having your way with fabric, manipulating it to best showcase motifs and colors. This pillow trio was originally made in Tula’s De La Luna Halloween-themed fabric, but they’d be smashing in any of your faves.

Our zombie pair is friendly and helpful as they hold your pins. You can tell by their tattered pink hearts they aren’t out to do any harm! Create their unique personalities with just a few bits of floss, felt, and button accents.

We miniaturized the classic pouf style ottoman as a clever pincushion. Use Layer Cake squares for a wonderful mixture of perfectly coordinating color and pattern or pull out some fave small scraps to mix + match. A great gift idea!

Where would you like to go today? Forget Google Maps and the ever-present GPS, give me a real map and I’ll follow you anywhere… bonus points if it might be a treasure map! We were originally inspired by the Street Maps fabric from the Dapper collection by Tim Holtz for Coats – a vintage wonderland of

Real starfish belong in tide pools. Our starfish pillow belongs on your sofa… or bed or chair or bench. The quick and easy project has a full pattern. Use it to add a splash of nautical fun to freshen-up your Spring décor.

What makes a great pillowscape? Gorgeous fabric, an interesting shape or two, and a few special bits of embellishment as a start. We combined all these attributes to create a fabulous 50″ bolster with two matching rounds.

Embroidery turned a simple round, white pillow into a stunning statement. Our friends at Janome America sponsored this beautiful custom embroidery design, allowing us to offer it to you as a free download in the six major embroidery machine formats. The ascending and descending triangles simulate a rosy sunrise reflected in a cool mountain lake.

Our owl pals are a generous size (18″ tall x 16″ wide) for easy squeezing or laying your head for a nap. We especially love their big, bright eyes; they’re staying wide awake so you can doze safe and sound. There’s a full pattern set.

For our Featured section, we’ve been focusing on projects that can use smaller pieces from your fabric stash. This lumbar pillow uses skinny cuts to create pretty strip patchwork. Wavy line free-motion quilting finishes the front.

The construction of a body pillow is similar to a standard pillow case – just a lot bigger. We show you an easy way to use a tuck to create the look of a flap between the top and bottom sections. Great as a beginner project.

Eggy’s the cutest chick in the nest! Nubby chenille combines with smooth, retro-inspired cotton for a sweet and soft vintage look. He’s irresistibly squeezable for Easter or any time you need an “egg-ceptionally” sweet stuffable.

You can make your own portable booster seats in cute, wipe-clean oilcloth or laminated cotton with a sturdy yet lightweight foam core. We show two different sizes: 3” and 5” – both with removable covers for extra easy clean-up.

Use these energy savers year ‘round. In the summer, they help keep cool air inside – heat, humidity, and smoke outside. When old man winter comes knocking at the door again, they’ll help keep heat in and drafts out.

Let this pretty kitty keep watch over the rest of the pillows on your sofa or bed. The bold silhouette with its sweet dimensional bow is truly the Cat’s Meow. Our appliqué design is a free download, including the lettering.
