I was lucky enough to work with Birch Fabrics again! You might remember the arrow pillow tutorial I did for their Serengeti line and now I am so excited to share this project with you, from the re-release of their Circa 52 collection. I was envisioning a cuter version of the carpet squares our library uses for ‘sitting spots’ during story time and my son picked up on it right away, grabbing a book and plopping down. Handmade toys and kid things make my heart so happy – as you can see from my pattern shop & free tutorials, I make lots of them!
I used 4 Birch fabrics: Birch Organics Mod Basics in Solid Orange, Birch Organics Mod Basics in Shroom, Birch Organics Circa 52 in Tree Stripes Shroom, & Birch Organics Mod Basics in Woodland Friends. You can find them all at Fabricworm.com!
I made two poufs, one with a squirrel applique and one with hand-stitched “tree rings”.
I’ll spare you a picture with my giganta-belly, but I fit just fine sitting on these too! You could also skip the fusible fleece & fabric scrap filling to make these throw pillows instead.
