Today’s pattern isn’t so much a direct response to requests I had been getting, only in that people have been asking for more cats! I can’t blame them, haha ❤ This one is a really simple but big plush so it could double as a pillow if you keep it on your bed or couch. It has a sweet and pretty kitty face with additional … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday! Unicorn Kitty Pillow Plush
I’m sure all you nerds like me out there don’t need much explanation for this project 😀 I made it from some scraps I had from some blanket projects earlier. I decided to just let the size of the scraps dictate how large the pillow would be, so I ended up with a whopping 24″ pillow, haha! We love big pillows in our house, so … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday! Supersized Pokeball Pillow
Happy Hobbit Day everyone! Today marks the birthday of both Bilbo and Frodo Baggins ^w^! With the newest The Hobbit movie installment coming out soon and my undying love for second breakfast, it seemed silly not to celebrate 😀 As you might know, I held a giveaway where I gave out this little cutie about a month ago, since I knew for a while that I wanted to do something special for Hobbit Day 😀 So I’m very glad I finally get a chance to share the tutorial with you! The sword shape is very simple to do with just a bit of appliqué and some stuffing, but the real kicker is the bit of satin stitching I did in glow-in-the-dark thread to simulate Sting’s ability to glow blue when orcs are near >w< Hopefully you’ll give the pattern a try whether you have special thread or not – it’s just perfect for pillow fights!
All right! Time for some more old school video game love >w< For a while I’ve been wanting to make a plush version of the famous Tetris blocks, but the idea of just having plush squares seemed like it could be livened up at least a bit. When I remembered that I was in desperate need for some more pincushions, I put two and two together to make these 😀
These helped me use up some long-stashed quilting cottons so it allowed me to make the Tetris blocks into some wild colors as opposed to the traditional primaries. I kinda prefer it this way ¬3¬ Of course, you don’t need to make yours pincushions – you could increase the pattern and make them traditional plush size, or even pillow size! I think that would be a lot of fun 😀 I personally can’t get my boyfriend to stop playing with them XD
Here’s a sweet pixel style Valentine’s Day project for any Legend of Zelda or video game fan! I would have taken the chance to deplete my suiting stash some more, but I found a better Valentine’s themed project in my quilting fabrics. Each little square of cotton fabric is sewn together as a grid to make one of the many well-known pixilated icons of the … Continue reading Freebie Friday: The Zelda Heart Piece Pillow Cover
