Today, I decided to bite the bullet and give it a go with some of the Cherry Fizz fabric Barbara Jones sent me for her feature. I had so much fun!
Allison's tute was VERY easy to follow and utilized printable templates. The biggest challenge was remembering to use a 1/2" seam to sew the top, back and sides together. Old habits die hard I guess. I don't really have experience sewing anything other than quilts and the occasional SQUARE pillow, mind you. :)
One good thing to remember when piecing curved seams is you can never have enough pins! Ha!
I am loving my new sprocket pillow so much! The tutorial includes 2 sizes and I made the larger one. Wouldn't this be a cool pillow to take along on a picnic?
If you happen to stop by Allison's and check out her tutorial, please leave a comment letting her know Ryan sent you!
If you love Cherry Fizz fabric as much as I do, you can win some by visiting and leaving a comment on this post. Up for grabs is 3 charm packs and a mini jelly roll.
My next project slated to begin this evening is a kindle cover using some linen and Ty Pennington scraps.
Wish me luck! I normally avoid zippers at all cost!!
