Scrap It: Patchwork Pillow

One easy way to use up odd-sized scraps of pretty fabric is to patchwork them together into an interesting pillow. Our Scrap It Patchwork Pillow is an example of one made using a grid. The design is the same on both the front and back, however, we turned one grid panel 90º to create an interesting effect when the pillow is viewed from the side. Our pillow shows off the fabulous new Central Park collection by Kate Spain for Moda, but the concept will work with any pile of scraps you think look good together. Just goes to show there is almost no cute little scrap without a future in one of your creations.

What's the number one sewing resolution for 2011? Get organized! We thought a great place to start would be to use up some of our scraps we can't bear to throw away, but which are starting to take up almost as much room as the new stuff. We have a series of fun projects this month called, 'Scap It' - the first one is our girly-girl reusable hot cup jacket for your morning coffee or tea. There are lots of patterns out there for this type of thing, but none with our signature touch: the ruffle! Skip that boring ol' cardboard sleeve and wake up your cup with a fun and frilly custom jacket.
