TMNT pillow form cover

Last weekend I completed this envelope style pillow cover for my son using this fun Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fabric.  I followed this great tutorial by Vanessa, TheCraftyGemini, on Youtube.  The pillow form I bought was size 16x16 but you can make them in any size!  Check out the video and you will learn how to determine the size you need to cut your fabric.  Happy Sewing!

Square bottom bag

I bought this fun tie dye fabric at JoAnn's a few months ago to make a rag quilt purse.  After cutting several squares I lost my mojo to create that type of purse.  Then several weeks ago, I came across this great video by smarmyclothes on YouTube on how to make a square bottom bag.  This is such a cute bag and the only thing I did differently was to make a thinner strap.  I will definitely have to try and make a larger one soon!  Happy Sewing!
