Reverse Appliqué Heart Throw Pillow

Throw pillows are one of those decorative household items that can change the look of a room in an instant. They are also incredibly easy to make. I like to buy one pillow form and change the pillow case to fit any occasion. It saves money and it’s fun to come up with different designs. This reverse appliqué heart throw pillow is my latest idea and it is perfect for Valentine’s Day.

With an envelope style case, this throw pillow is easy to make and, as you’ll see, it can be personalized in so many ways. I have a hunch I’ll be making these for lots of other occasions.

One of the nice things about this pillow case is that it can be adjusted to fit any pillow form, so if you have already have one you want to use, then this will work. You’ll find a reference chart with sizes needed.

Christmas Rick Rack Table Runner

Rick Rack Christmas Table Runner Tutorial

A number of years ago I made a Christmas quilt with festive squares and rick rack. It still comes out every year, and displaying it over a railing is now part of our holiday traditions. That quilt inspired me to make this Christmas rick rack table runner which will be decorating our dining room table throughout the season.

Adding the rick rack serves two purposes. First, it adds a lovely decorative touch and second, the quilting is done as the rick rack gets sewn down.

For some reason the rick rack reminds me of a gingerbread house. I think that is because it looks a bit like the royal icing that is piped onto gingerbread men.

This table runner is easy to make and, with the right supplies, can be finished in a couple of hours. For anyone looking for a good way to use up fabric scraps, this is the ideal project. Even better, change up the fabrics and it can easily be made for any occasion.

For this pillow, you will need red, green and white fabrics, and the more the merrier. The variation of the different fabric patterns adds a lot of character to the design.
