This plush throw is framed with patchwork and pom poms. Even if you've never done any patchwork, you can make this beautiful blanket. The fun part is picking all the squares: 72 of them in this case. It's like coloring with fabric; you mix and match, combining colors and patterns from square to square. We selected bright, bold options to create a super vibrant border, but you could vary your own choices to create a more subdued outcome... or even more colorful! The jumbo pom pom trim adds a playful touch, and the center of the throw is super-soft, double-sided luxury plush fleece. Colorful, cute, and cuddly in one great project!
The gateway drug of quilting is the baby quilt tutorial. Once you try one of these easy, itty-bitty marvels, you'll be hooked, and small pieces of fabric will begin stacking up all over your house. This handsome quilt is made up of bright, bold geometrics in a gender neutral citron yellow and warm gray color palette. We added a custom monogram to the bottom right corner square, which personalizes the project and makes it a cherished keepsake. However, first it has to be dragged around the house for a few years, cried into, and cuddled with; only then can it be a real keepsake.
Strip piecing is a fast and easy mainstay in the quilting cotton world, and it has become just as popular for other substates. We’ve used the technique for these bundle-y Cuddle® blankets. But rather than using only one-directional strips, we added our own S4H spin by mixing horizontal insets within the main vertical strips. Then, because Shannon Fabrics Cuddle comes in so many colors, textures, and naps, we kicked up the concept another notch by combining smooth and embossed Cuddle® fabrics so the blankets have a unique mixture of textures that make them extra cozy.
When you're searching for the fastest and easiest home décor project, most people would steer you toward a simple pillow. We don't disagree, but when it comes to instant gratification, close on the pillow's heels is the pillowcase! They take a bit more fabric than a standard pillow cover, but a crisp, new pillowcase immediately brightens up your bed linens. It's quick and fun to make special pillowcases for all kinds of special occasions. We've altered the traditional fold-and-stitch construction method with today's version: a reversible case. By stitching just one extra seam, you get twice the pretty possibilities.
Cotton sheets are crisp and clean and they launder beautifully, but they can also feel cool on baby's cheeks. We suggest switching up to a soft fleece that can help your little one drift off to dreamland in warm and cozy comfort. There are so many lovely fleece options out there today; you're sure to find something that will be a perfect fit for your nursery. One or more of these sheets would make a lovely new baby shower gift.
We searched online to see if anyone had ever done a sleep study comparing the prettiness of your pillowcases to the vividness of your dreams. Amazingly, not a one! If you decide to go ahead with this important research, we get a cut of your Genius Grant. Until then, we’re firmly convinced there is a connection, and suggest you make a new set of our romantic pillowcases for every bedroom to encourage blissful dreams all around.
Wrap up your favorite someone in this incredibly snuggly rag quilt with its special "secret admirer heart" appliquéd onto the bottom row. "What's a Rag Quilt?" We were hoping you'd ask! A rag quilt is sewn together so the seams show on the outside. After washing and drying, the seams begin gently fray or rag, producing a soft and cuddly look and feel. The more you wash and dry it, the fluffier the rag becomes. Our quilt is made from ten different Woolies Flannels by Maywood Studio in patterns and tones we thought were very guy-like and so qualified the quilt as a potential boyfriend/hubby/dad/son/uncle/grandpa Valentine's Day project. Truth be told... all the women we showed it to were ready to snap it up and take a little nap, so we think it's a perfect everybody project.

Ahhhhh, the sleepover. If there was ever an misnomer, this would be it, since the amount of sleeping that usually happens at such an event is minimal at best. The whole idea is to pile everyone together into one room and laugh until the wee hours. Our sleepover sack is a perfect choice for however much dozing gets done. We selected cozy flannel in two bright prints along with a coordinating cotton. Make a matching pillowcase to complete the sleepover set. We also added a cute, wraparound harness so the bag can be rolled and secured with a built-in handle to carry it to its destination and back again.
