Looking for a fun block to sew something for Spring? How about a Terrific Tulip? My pattern will show you how to sew this block so that you can use it for making a table runner, a mini quilt or even a pillow!
Are you tired of plastic or paper shopping bags? Are you wanting to be eco friendly but haven't found a shopping bag that looks good, works well and is convenient? Look no further! I designed this bag to fit all those needs and more. This is the bag design I use for all my shopping because not only does it hold a lot, it fits over the bag packing racks at the grocery store (makes for easier packing), plus it also folds up neatly when not in use (so you can tuck it into a pocket, a purse or a glove compartment - keeping it on hand). The pattern directions include step by step photos and the pattern pieces are tiled so that you can print it out on 8.5" x 11" paper (and then tape the pieces together to have a full size pattern to use). You can choose to include or eliminate ruffles from your version - it's your choice! The pattern is beginner friendly and when you click on the link to my Craftsy shop, you will be given the details for supplies needed and the finished size.
I specifically designed this pillow for comfort (I use mine all the time) and for ease in sewing. The template, included in the pattern download, has been sized so that you can use pre-cuts if you'd like. Try using either charms, jelly rolls or layer cakes - and you will find, less time spent cutting, means a finished pillow much more quickly! The hexagons are easy to piece on machine - no need for hand piecing or tricky "Y" seams.
Sew one in plaid for the guys, like I did for my son.
|The "Manly Reading Pillow" was my first version.|
I've tweaked the design to make the Triple Hex even better AND easier to sew.
Presenting the Oh, Joy! Patchwork Pillow...
Fat Quarter and pre-cut friendly (I used a pack of mini charms to make the version above and two fat quarters for the envelope back) or use a collection of 2.5" squares from your stash for the front - your choice! This design is also a good opportunity to try some machine applique if you haven't before, my pattern includes the applique templates and walks you through the steps needed to be successful. Did you notice the double binding on the pillow edge? It's a fun and easy finishing touch that is included to make a one-of-a-kind pillow!

I was inspired to make this mini for my sewing room as my family likes to tease me about my general distaste for ripping out stitches.
Thinking I'm not alone in this view, I thought my simple project would make a great gift idea and decided to share it as my first pattern on Craftsy.
The pattern is in a tutorial format with text and pictures to walk you through it with ease.
*Includes instructions for a hanging sleeve to make this into a table topper that will fit onto a 12" x 14" wire frame. Frames are sold HERE.
This pattern started out as a tutorial on my blog, but I decided to make it even easier to follow by converting it into a PDF pattern and putting it on Craftsy.
I hope you enjoy my patterns and I would love to see what you make with them.
Meantime, I'm working on more patterns to share...
