package pillows

Friday, April 17, 2009

Remember the package pillows a few posts back?
Well, I put together a "how to" and you will be able to find it here and over there, 

in my sidebar. 
You can decorate a party table, make a bunch at Christmas time and place them under the tree or all around the house, or give them as gifts with something special in the small pocket.  Just have fun!
Have yourself a wonderful weekend.

  10. I will definitely have to try this with the Amy Butler fabric I have :) thanks for sharing the info. These would be cute too with baby fabric for showers etc. You can give the mom a gift card in the pocket and later the baby can play with a very soft cube. Even make a few others smaller so they can be stacked :)

    You should write a sewing book-you could probably do all the pictures for it yourself, and all of your sewing projects come out so well! :)

  47. Thank you for the pattern, Leslie! I just made my first package pillow. It made the present so much more substantial. Besides my son loved bobbing the pillow around the house when it was finished. A gift card alone would never have had such loft.
