Awhile back Heather brought in her Seedlings table runner by Kansas Troubles. This is a fun pattern that looks far more complicated than it looks.  It is a raw edge curve and is made with both a Charm Pack and Mini Charm Pack plus some additional fabrics.

The button details add a nice touch.  Have a closer look.

Sew And Tell….Kris

These pillows were made using a pattern by Australian designer Claire Turpin called Pip & Ellie . You saw her work previously on our Sew and Tell section last year (Hen House). When I saw these birds I just fell in love with them. It was the big eyes, long legs and round bodies that were so appealing. Too cute!

The fabrics used were various for the birds (some from Hamel’s, some were from my stash) and the backgrounds/backing of the pillows were from Hamel’s Tone on Tone Collection and Kona solids (we carry the entire Kona Solids collection as a basic in our store).

The pillows were made as book pillows – a pocket was formed on the back of the pillow as a space for the kids to put a book in. The pillow could then be leaned up against their knees as they were lying down to support the book for reading or used to lie on while reading and then of course, store the book for next time. All of the kids love them. I found directions for making a book pillow on Pinterest and used an 18″ pillow form to stuff them with.

The pillow tops were appliqued as per the pattern with a layer of batting and a backing of muslin so that I could free motion quilt each top to have it look a little different for each child. I made each of the birds a little a different and the backing colours were also different for each one so that they could be distinguished easily. No fighting over whose pillow was whose! My grandchildren………never!  😉
