more pillow covers

The hot summer weather has come to Spain very quickly. At this time of year I prefer to work on smaller projects – or even Christmas projects to get at least the “cool” feeling. I have opted once more for quilted pillow covers. My friend Kate has moved into her new house and I wanted to surprise her with a small gift. She loves bears and I have seen this wonderful pillow pattern at Sometimes Crafter. So last weekend I have started with the base cutting different red fabrics by Kaffe Fassett. Using the zigzag stitch I have sewn the blue and green bears on to the quilted base :

And a collage with some more details of the two bear brothers :collage bear pillows in detail -

My other project was to make a set of blue pillow covers. I have joined the front and the back of the pillow covers with the normal quilt binding technique.

I have redecorated my sewing room. At this occasion I had to take everything out of the room and I found out how much material and UFOs I have. For the rest of the summer I shall finish all my half-way-through projects before starting anything new! 

Thanks for the visit and happy sewing, Barbora

    Those bear cushions are simply fabulous and it’s so nice to see a different version than in the tutorial – what a difference colour can make! 2 amazing sweet little bears!


  2. Those Kaffe fabrics — ingenious of you. I love bears.


  3. Your bears are cute, but I’m especially taken with the blue pillows. Good luck with those UFOs.
