The Easiest & Cutest Pillowcase Ever: Tutorial

IMG_2824
The other day, I was explaining to a non-DIY-type friend that craft stores have their Christmas supplies up so early so that makers can have all their goods ready to sell/gift/hoard in time for the season. So in honor of the early starters here’s a little Christmas in September. I’m going to share my favorite quick pillowcase tutorial. A pillowcase makes a great gift by itself, and like we did here, as wrapping for a coordinating gift like our PJ pants!
easy pillowcase tutorialI learned this pillowcase technique a few years ago at QuiltCon when American Patchwork and Quilting was doing their 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge. UPDATE:  I just went to the site and it’s still going, so go check it out and make a few extra to donate! Bust that stash for a good cause!IMG_2711

Fabric Friday on Pretty Prudent

It’s always a good day when we have a knit to give away. Today we have this adorable Jay-Cyn Designs for Birch Fabrics, Feather River, KNIT, Bobbers Orange fabric. We try to scoop as much knit fabric as we can get when Fabricworm has them, because they go fast. If you’re new to knits, check out our guide on How to Sew Knit Fabrics. After that, try out our tutorials for the knit jersey dress for girls and our Two-Piece Knit Wrap Nursing Dress.

Flower Friday: DIY Dried Flower Soaps

DIY Dried Flower Soaps (4 of 5)
Remember those beautiful flowers from when I was Yarn Bombing Blooms? Well, those (along with a few others) have dried up, and since I can’t seem to part with them I turned them into dried flower soaps. This project was ridiculously easy and so much fun. Guess what you’re getting for every birthday and holiday, Jaime and Jacinda?
