Quilted BoHo Pillow Tutorial from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

Ahhhh!!! I love the way this quilted boho pillow turned out. Whether it’s World Market, Target, Anthropology, or Hobby Lobby, boho pillows are everywhere. I have been dreaming about creating a quilted boho pillow of my own, and after I saw the possibilities within Chenille-It, the sky was the limit (click here for an introduction to Chenille-It). I really had a hard time deciding on the design I wanted to make, so seeing this pillow finished makes me so happy. Isn’t it modern, hip, and fun? I cooked up this tutorial on it so you too can make ...

My new Pietra pants from Dizzy Quilts

I'm really sewing garments out of season, but I really want to use up the fabrics and patterns I already have so I went ahead and made my Pietra pants muslin even as the temperatures dropped near freezing!

You can't really tell by the picture, but it was actually 5 degrees Celsius when I took these pictures!
I made View A of the Closet Case Patterns Pietra pants in a straight size 18. I did shorten the pants by 2 inches but that was the only modification I made.

I love everything about this pattern and the instructions ...

‘Christmas Tree Skirt’ from Granny Maud's Girl

I finished this tree skirt three days after last Christmas, or 362 days before this Christmas (as I prefer to think of it), but it has taken me a while to get the pattern written and finished.

‘Christmas Tree Skirt’ pattern by Granny Maud’s Girl

The project started a couple of years ago when I realised that I had sent our only tree skirt to our family’s holiday house on the other side of Australia. It was only a piece of cheap satin that I had hemmed in a circle, and I had sent it away because I ...

Tamarack Jacket in Navy Linen and Nani Iro from On the Windy Side

I made a quilted jacket!  Specifically, the Tamarack Jacket by Grainline Studio.

The exterior is a beautiful medium weight linen from The Fabric Store (pretty sure it's this one).

I used wool batting - the Quilter's Dream kind because it's lovely and doesn't smell like sheep.  It's getting pretty cold here now so the wool should keep me snuggly and warm.

On the outside this jacket is very "I am a serious person walking a dog".  On the inside it's much more "I'm a free spirit who makes her own clothes".  That dreamy fabric ...

The Luxury of Linen from Cottage Quilt Studio

Flax Linen is an amazing textile! It is so luxurious! I have been making Bath Towel Sets for my Etsy Shop and will be adding Linen Kitchen Towels to my shop tomorrow!

I absolutely love Linen! Linen makes your skin feel wonderful too.  It gets softer with use and washings. Linen is super absorbent and dries quickly. Naturally resistant to mildew and stains.

European Flax Line is usually hand picked, so it costs more than cotton. A beautifully woven fabric having different weights and textures. The possibilities are endless! Bedding, Towels, Table Clothes, Napkins, Book Covers, Clothes, Curtains, Slip Covers ...
