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!).

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.

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’.

Shibori Indigo Dye Kit Review

Shibori Indigo Dye Kit Review - see what is inside this cheap kit, that dyes up to 15 shirts!

Sometimes ordering craft supplies blindly offline can turn out poorly (see my leather dye experiment here) but I really love this shibori indigo dye kit from Jacquard! I’ve used it several times over the past few years and had consistent results so I feel good about recommending it, after doing two separate projects this summer I decided to invite a few blogging friends for a whole week of shibori dye projects. I’m going to start off with a review of the kit since I love it so much, if you order one today you’ll be ready to experiment with indigo by the weekend!
