When you're a kid, Valentine's Day is the perfect combination of giving and receiving. It's fun to plan and put together cards and treats for your friends and family; then it's a thrill to see what you get in return. The occasion is certainly auspicious enough to demand its own special carrying case. Ours is

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.

Everyone who loves Mary Engelbreit raise your hand! You’re in good company; this creative woman has been stealing our hearts with her adorable designs for decades. And now: ribbons! We are thrilled our friends at Renaissance Ribbons are now offering Mary Engelbreit ribbons. We designed a sweet child's apron to feature some of these cute-as-a-button

This smaller size duffle (8½” x 15″ x 6”) is great for kids or anyone who wants a space-saving, on-the-go option. We created a soft, quilted exterior so the duffle can gently expand and mold to better fit its contents.

With a rag quilt, you want your seams to sew. After washing and drying, the exposed seams gently fray or ‘rag,’ producing a very soft and cuddly feel – perfect for babies. Our design features unique scalloped outer edges.

Why not add a bit of glamour to your little one's mealtime? Cute ruffles near the shoulders make these bibs look like they have fancy cap sleeves. We offer a full pattern download for those ruffles, as well as for the body of the bib and the front pocket. Not only are they pretty, they’re

As we return to outdoor events and festivals, did you know many venues no longer allow closed totes and bags? If you want to carry in a larger bag, it must be see-through. S4H to the rescue with a fashionable solution.

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.

Lay it down for a clean, soft play area. Roll it up to tote to your next destination. Our quick and easy play mat is perfect for the baby or toddler on the go. We combined snuggly chenille with two pretty quilting cottons.

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.

Lolly, Chester, and Flora – our trio of bunny pals – are extra huggable! The free pattern can be used to create your own unique pal, adapting the style of fleece, cotton, and accessories to bring out each bunny’s personality.

There he sits: a super sweet softie who combines nubby cotton chenille with smooth, retro-inspired cotton for a soft vintage look. He’s definitely one-of-a-kind. We list all the elements we used, but the fabric combos are endless.

This easy to assemble knit blanket is made from 15 wide and narrow panels in three coordinating knits. The blanket layers together in a snap and is cleverly sandwiched and topstitched so all seams are finished front and back.

A handy, keep-clean trick for outdoor dining. Lay out these laminated mats: one as a surface for your meal, another to sit on. When done, simply wipe clean with a sanitizing spray, re-roll, and drop back in your bag.

Strip piecing is a fast and easy mainstay in quilting; we’ve borrowed the technique for a bundle-y Cuddle® blanket. And, rather than using only one-directional strips, we mixed horizontal insets within the main vertical strips.

Cute toss pillows in interesting shapes are a great way to interject a bit of playful zest into children's décor (although, we will allow you to make this for grown-up types as well). Our ukulele pillow tutorial certainly qualifies as an interesting shape, and we include a free downloadable pattern for it.  Can’t you just
String style backpacks are in high demand right now for back-to-school, but they're really a year-round, on-the-go mainstay. They're compact and lightweight but can still hold plenty. You can find them in almost every style, from ripstop athletic gear to high-end leather bags. Ours is made in brightly colored quilting weight cotton. And to give the
Babies drool. It’s their job. Drooling is normal through the first two years of life since full control of swallowing and the muscles of the mouth isn’t fully developed until 18 - 24 months. Plus, babies who are teething amp up the drool factor. It’s kind of adorable, especially when they blow little bubbles, but it’s
It’s the perfect “protection pair.” A bib for baby and a burp cloth for the person holding baby! And, who says keeping clean has to be boring? We used two coordinating designer cottons with a layer of soft cotton batting in between. It’s extremely washable and extremely beautiful - and just a wee bit more

Keep your tots tidy with this adorable apron for art projects and more. We used laminated cotton for an easy, wipe-clean finish. The free pattern is designed to fit 4T to 5T. Whip one up, then whip out those poster paints.

Our wonderfully sneaky stuffed crocodile is an homage to the creepy croc in Peter Pan who was forever stalking Captain Hook. Soft fleece makes him extra huggable and two widths of rick rack form his teeth and spine.

These cute stuffables are a fantastic ScrapBuster project – especially for kids! Follow our steps to make a basket of super-soft decorative eggs in bright, patterned fleece with ribbons, rick rack, mini-poms, and felt flower accents.

Super-cute organization makes it more fun to tidy up, especially if you use a bright, happy print and hang the caddy at kid-height. There are nine 6” pockets, each with an expandable pleat, that can hold lots of little items.

Our super soft body pillow offers 4½ feet of huggability. It’s a must-have for crashing on the family room floor, relaxing (I mean studying), and it can provide sleep support for pregnant moms or full body support for napping dads.

When we're little, we simply have no idea have wonderful it is to be able nap. I remember how hard I tried to keep my peepers open all day long, and my kids struggled against daytime dreams as well. If only we could sneak away for nap time now. Not to mention for a carton

A fast and easy pillowcase project that demonstrates a construction technique known as “burrito style.” It’s an easy way to create nicely finished seams inside and out with a quick roll-and-turn method.

These adorable blankets are simply begging for hugs. Made with a double layer of super soft luxury fleece and sporting a lightly stuffed animal head and ears in one corner, who could resist giving them a loving squeeze?!

Just like that crafty Mary Poppins, sometimes you need to sweeten the pot to get chores done. We scaled down a traditional laundry duffle to kid size, making it easy to fill and carry into the laundry room. Plus, the super-cute appliqué on the front leaves no doubt about what needs to be done with
Here's a fast and fabulous Valentine's gift idea everyone will love, because it includes both adorable fabric and yummy candy. We created a cellophane bag topper from small fabric squares, stitched on a personalized message of love, and sealed it with a secret quick-release basting stitch. When it's finished its job as a bag topper,
