Thanks so much! I used (I think) a 20x20 inch pillowform. It's not removable, but since the form is washable I can just wash the whole thing if I need to.

No problem, haha. The front is quilted, but the back is just pieced.

I went home to Austin over Spring Break and got the chance to do a bit of crafting with my sister, Superstitch (well, I mostly call her Elizabeth). I took her quilting class a while back and had some leftover fabric, conveniently already cut into equal-width strips. We decided to make a quilted pillow out of my leftovers, and she painstakingly guided me through the process which, although I took a class, I had forgotten because my brain is made out of Tropical Fruit Starbursts.

It was worth it in the end though, because now I have this beauty sitting front and center on my couch:

(That's actually Elizabeth's couch, but it's on my couch now, haha.)

We had enough fabric left to make the back fabulous too:

I love it so, so much. Thanks for helping me, Liz!

If I didn't fully believe that Elizabeth paid you to say that, I would say:

Thank you! I'm so glad you like them!

I know these are really popular right now and everyone has them, but I couldn't resist posting these. Plus, I just love these fabrics!

Made from the pattern on Little Birds blog: http://littlebirds.typepad.com/little_birds_handmade/files/soft_tree_pattern.pdf

I made a few slight alterations from the pattern, I don't tend to think ahead and realized halfway through making these that I didn't have rice or anything to weight them down. So instead I inserted a circle cut out of index card into the base to give them stability, then topstitched a little rim around the base.

I hope you guys like them!

I got bored last night and decided to make some dolls, using only materials I didn't have any other use for. It was totally fun, and even though I'm not very good at sewing (and I've never made a doll or a stuffed animal before), they came out pretty cute.

The two of them together:

The one I call green-head:

And the one I made for my sister (the hideous yellow mall-hair is temporary and not sewn on, my sister has extra brown yarn so I'm making her make her own doll-wig):

and what she will look like with the brown hair:

And a few in-progress pictures:

These are made of scraps, vintage pillowcases, napkins, and yarn I wasn't ever going to use. The faces are done in three strand backstitch.

I hope you guys like these!

OH, this is so cute! And so original! I love everything about this.

Ahhh! I love it!

I love that you used the scraps from my bag for the bow. We're going to use every last inch of that fabric.

Hahaha, I'm an eighth generation Texan and even I couldn't get through that, haha. I guess Austin takes the accent right out of you.
