Use the basic how to & let your imagination run wild!  Make a cushion, a wall hanging, a quilt, a toy bag or tote, turn it into a memory game, embroider hidden words, or how about the alphabet or numbers? Just have fun with it :)

Excellent, I’ve been waiting for the tutorial for this to come up. I’ve had my fabrics chosen for my son’s cushion for ages :)

amazing. i’ve been following your blog for a month or so, and i swear every post is more beautiful & inspirational than the last! i don’t remember how i stumbled on your blog in the first place (maybe the umbrella prints challenge?), but man-oh-man, i sure am glad i did.

I LOVE this fun, unique, and whimsical idea. This is now on my to-do list for my daughter right behind the quillow. :) THANK YOU for the tutorial.

I think I’m going to use it to make a present for my god-daughter :-)
Thank you for sharing.

oh what a lovely blog, you are very clever :) I love the bunting and would like to give the cushion a go, thank you for sharing

oh i just love this, my little guy would adore! a tote bag is a fab idea, keep him occupied while i’m at the grocery store… with his older brother too… who is being really loud, just to see if he can, and then my little guy thinks wow, that looks like fun, so he tries it, meanwhile i’m loading up on booze… you know… to stay sane… :) no but in all seriousness this is adorable, thank you for sharing!

I just found your tute today! I checked it out at Fat Quarterly, and I have to say I’m IN LOVE with this project. My 22 month old -Samy, is going to love this. As am I -since his room has a Dr Suess theme! I can’t wait to cut into my fabrics ;D
