I have a fun, easy little bird pattern to share today, as a part of the Sew A Softie group. I love the Sew A Softie community – Trixi from Coloured Buttons organizes it and all over the world, bloggers share free softie patterns and organize softie sewing workshops. Her passion for getting kids started sewing is lovely; you can see my review of her e-book for kids sewing here. In the past I have shared a free sheep softie and a free pocket kitty softie, this Christmas season I have a jingle bird!

If there’s one thing I always want more of, it’s sleep. My kids live to pounce on me and wake me up, or come ask me questions when my husband is kindly letting me sleep in. I thought maybe a sleep mask would help me ignore them, so I’m sharing this free sewing mask pattern! This would be a great project to sew if you’re taking any trips soon, or maybe the perfect stocking stuffer for any friends who have little people poking them awake.
Holiday decorating has never been one of my strong suits, but as my kids get older and more excited about Halloween, I want to be a little more festive! I’m not keen on spending a ton of time on things that will only be displayed for part of the year, so I whipped up these easy Halloween banners while they watched a movie. It took longer to design the “Boo!” than it did to sew the banner! This tutorial is being shared as a part of a Halloween Make-A-Palooza hosted by Shelly at Coral & Co, so be sure to scroll to the bottom and see what other bloggers have made.
I had so much fun sewing up these patterns – I tested 4 different free pincushion sewing patterns and am sharing my thoughts on each one! Pincushions are the best; they sew up pretty quickly, they are useful, they make great gifts, and almost always use up scraps. For these free pincushion tutorials, I used a custom fat quarter bundle of fabric in some of my favorite colors! Phat Quarters Fabrics sponsored this post, which means she sent me the fabrics in addition to compensation for creating the tutorial.
