free sewing tutorial: little pillow
What to do with a favorite small square of fabric or a block printed patch? Some of you have asked for a little more direction on what to do with the DIY stitched block prints. Although this idea is simple and perhaps obvious, it is hard to think of an idea sometimes, especially when you are sitting down to actually work on a project. I have great ideas in the middle of the night, but when I am at my studio table I don’t seem to be able to recall those ideas, especially the simple ones. There are many possibilities for filling your pillow, just make sure that the filling is dry. I like to stuff this with something other than poly fiberfill, wool, or cotton. I like a texture, a weight, and/or a smell. Place a pillow with scented herbs by your bedside or in your sweaters, use a weighted pillow full of flax seeds or rice as a paper weight or an eye pillow. A little pillow is a lovely gift.
There are two ways to access the pattern: you can add it to your shopping cart, and once you complete the check-out process (no credit card required) the tutorial will automatically be emailed to you. OR you can click the image above to view and/or download the PDF file straight from this page.
Need felt or fabric? I have the same felt that I use in my studio for sale in bundles and grab bags here and you can find plant-dyed fabric bundles and remnants here.
I'd love to see your creations! It would make me so happy if you shared them... please tag @katagolda on Instagram.
