Free toddler pillow case pattern – tested!

If you’re looking for a free toddler pillowcase pattern, I tested out one of my friend’s tutorials and sewed up this colorful cover! I’ve saved minky fabric scraps but rarely use them, so this was the perfect project for me. My friend Shelly at Coral and Co. shares all sorts of fun things to sew for kids, if you use pinterest you have definitely seen her baby headband tutorial; and you can find the instructions for how to make your own toddler pillowcase in her blog post here.

Modern Embroidery Sampler Pattern

Modern embroidery sampler

I finished a fun modern embroidery sampler!  I’ve been working on it slowly, for close to a year (I went back on Instagram to check my progress!). I really love embroidery samplers and trying different stitches out, it gives you the “finished project” rush of dopamine over and over again! I got hung up with what to do in the middle; the “color wheel” that I ended up with is far from perfect but I still like it. One of my favorite things about embroidery projects is that I always remember where I was when I worked on them, so I have fun family memories hanging on my wall.

35+ Sewing Tutorials with a Cricut

Cricuts aren't just for paper crafts, check out how you can use your Cricut with fabric! Lots of sewing tutorials and inspiration for using your Cricut to embellish and create projects.

I thought of digital cutting machines as mainly for vinyl (on windows/coffee cups) and paper crafts, but realized how wrong I was once I actually starting playing with a Cricut Explore Air 2! You can use this tool to make so much more than simple applique shirts, so I rounded up a bunch of Cricut sewing projects: including ideas for kids, women, home decor, and accessories. Can you believe you can make a whole purse on this magical machine! I think all these creative ideas will get your wheels turning, I know I’ll be making more things with mine in the future. I have cut projects out by hand in the past, but a digital machine makes perfect and clean lines, elevating projects from ‘homemade’ to ‘handmade’.

How To Make Indigo Dyed Curtains

See how to make diy shibori curtains with this picture tutorial! Indigo dye shibori is a beautiful cobination and these diy curtains look organic and airy.

I made indigo shibori curtains!! I wish I had some before pictures, but you’ll have to trust me, I convinced myself and my husband that hot pink walls would be fun in our bedroom (while I was pregnant). After I’d had the baby and regained my sanity, I realized I was not a fan and we switched to a clean, crisp white! I had already bought white curtains, which was a little too monochromatic. I’d been experimenting with indigo dye already (Be sure to check out my full review of my favorite indigo dye kit in this post!) so I decided to try my hand at diy shibori indigo curtains!

100% honesty, these didn’t turn out how I had envisioned. But, I learned a lot and thought I’d share since I couldn’t find any perfect tutorials online when I started looking. I like the pop of color they give my wall, and that they’re imbued with happy memories of making them with my friend! Hopefully this can give you some things to consider if you want to try it yourself.
