JoAnne’s grandfather requested that she make him another cover for
his favorite head pillow that he uses while watching TV. By the looks
of the previous cover, it surely gets a lot of use. (haha)
She couldn’t decide between this flannel combo or a fishing themed
one, so she decided to make both! They came together quickly and
we think the zippers give them a finished look.
Pillow measures 14" x 18" and 14" coordinating brown/black zippers were used.
|Ringing in the new year with
some champagne fabric!
Jackie made this reversible
wing bag to jazz up a bottle
she brought to her in-law's
house. This fabric is versatile
enough to be used for other
special occasions as well.
Who wore it better?
Jackie made a couple of Eagles bandanas for our
furry friends to wear while they watched the Super
Bowl. Aren’t they such little models?
Both were made from 100% cotton material and
lined with coordinating dark geometric dot fabric.
Each measures 7" x 12" at the widest points.
Double fold bias tape was used to make simple ties.
One was embellished with white ric rac while the
other featured a white, scalloped lace trim.
This Bunny Bowling Panel is a quick
project that would make a good gift
for Easter. Grab a ball and use them
as bowling bunnies or split them up
as individual gifts.
Each panel comes with 6 unique
bunnies. We stuffed ours with
Poly-fil and put a little bag of
Poly-pellets in the bottom to help
them stand up.
These cute little guys were made up using the
Mod Monsters panel from Quilting Treasures.
They go together pretty quickly with easy to
follow directions and a few notions.
All you need is matching thread, some
stuffing, and Poly-pellets (or something
similar) to add weight to the bottom and feet.
This helps the monsters sit up. The bellies
were stitched around using batting to create a
Most of the sewing can be done by machine.
The eyes were the only handsewn item put on
at the end of the project.
We turned our monsters into maritans by
putting them in front of our new Out of this
World fabric collection.
|Each kit includes a 2 placemat and napkin sets.
Original pattern; designed and sewn by Lisa Mainiero.
These items were made for a local family's fundraiser.
The basket was stuffed with a few Eagles goodies
made by Jo. It included a throw (approx. 54" x 60")
and two pillow cases. The throw was made of fleece
and lined with wide-back flannel. The pillowcases are
100% cotton with coordinating prints.
Lisa made the dress below using a McCall's pattern with a
stretch knit fabric. She chose to make it long sleeves but used
narrow elastic to ruche the bottom of the sleeves up her wrist.
It was the perfect print and color for the winter wedding she
attended. Even Ophelia (our dressform) looked great in it.
|Pillow case kits available!
|Kits come with everything precut to the
exact dimensions needed. Sewing is the
only thing that needs to be done. This
project is a quick and easy project great for
We used a french seam technique
on our pillowcase to hide the
inside raw edges. Pillows can
also be finished using a serger or
a zig-zag stitch.
Jackie made this cute makeup bag from our Oasis collection. The
gold vinyl on the bottom is soft enough to sew easily but sturdy
enough to give the bag structure. The color picks up on some of
the gold undertones in the fabric. We just love the pop of color in
the lining and her handmade piping!
Adriana made this baby gift set
for her cousin who had a travel
themed baby shower. The prints
we has worked perfectly for her
colors and theme. The set
includes two bandana bibs, two
burp cloths, and a receiving
blanket. They are made with
100% cotton prints and backed
with coordinating flannels. The
receiving blanket has pink piping
to tie it all together. A hand made
item is always a great addition to
a baby shower gift, and because
they are made from quality
cotton fabrics, these can be
washed and used again and again!
"Hanging Out" quilt pattern
(shown left) using the Sleepy
Sloth collection. Measurements
are 47" x 56". We used two
layers of batting behind the sloths
to help them stand out from the
background. The center panel
allows this quilt to come together
quickly. Great for babies and
We used a tree branch from outside
to hang our sloths on for our
display. Panel comes with mama
and baby sloth. Velcro on their
paws allows them to hang easily
around a dowel/branch.
|Eyeglass cases made from
Windham's Type fabric
Jackie made this strip
quilt for one of her
friends who's having a
baby. She used the
Northcott to make it.
Jackie made this cosmetic bag using cotton fabric with heavy interfacing. The pink
piping trims the white vinyl bottom. The inside is lined with coordinating fabric.
