Sew Me Something Good Patterns
are available in PDF format
|Terrific Tulip Quilt Block|
The pattern contains step by step colour diagrams alongside text, to guide you through sewing the block. No templates, paper piecing or specialty rulers are necessary for sewing this block! A single block would work beautifully for a pillow or sew multiples for a table runner or a quilt. Once you know how to sew a Terrific Tulip Block, you'll be able to sew as many tulip themed projects as you want!
|Oh, Joy! Patchwork Pillow Pattern|
(this version uses scraps from my stash for the patchwork).
Looking to add a little joy into your home decor? I have stitched up a couple of seasonal versions of this design (because the more joy throughout the house, the better!) and love the shadowed text applique with holly leaf on the center front which uses self cover buttons for the holly berries. This quilted pillow is straight forward to sew and finishes with a flange (two fabric) binding with a simple envelope backing. My pattern includes step by step colour photos to guide you through making your pillow and is a great choice for using fat quarters and mini charms from your stash!
|Oh, Joy! Patchwork Pillow Pattern |
(this version uses a pack of mini charms for the patchwork and is the version shown in my pattern).
Are you tired of plastic or paper shopping bags? Are you wanting to be eco friendly but haven't found a shopping bag that looks good, works well and is convenient? Look no further! I designed this bag to fit all those needs and more. This is the bag design I use for all my shopping because not only does it hold a lot, it fits over the bag packing racks at the grocery store (makes for easier packing), plus it also folds up neatly when not in use (so you can tuck it into a pocket, a purse or a glove compartment - keeping it on hand). The pattern directions include step by step photos and the pattern pieces are tiled so that you can print it out on 8.5" x 11" paper (and then tape the pieces together to have a full size pattern to use). You can choose to include or eliminate ruffles from your version - it's your choice! The pattern is beginner friendly and when you click on the link to my shop, you will be given the details for supplies needed and the finished size.
I specifically designed this pillow for comfort (I use mine all the time) and for ease in sewing. The template, included in the pattern download, has been sized so that you can use pre-cuts if you'd like. Try using either charms, jelly rolls or layer cakes - and you will find, less time spent cutting, means a finished pillow much more quickly! The hexagons are easy to piece on machine - no need for hand piecing or tricky "Y" seams.
This pattern started out as a tutorial on my blog, but I decided to make it even easier to follow by converting it into a PDF pattern and making it available for download here.
I hope you enjoy my patterns and I would love to see what you make with them.
Meantime, I'm working on more patterns to share...
