Pattern Shop News!

The Book Pillow & Pincushion pattern is now available in my SHOP.
This one's for all those book lovers out there...

Now you can add plush book pillows to your favourite reading spot! You can choose from 2 sizes of pillows with options to sew the book closed or include a secret message inside the book that you can open and read. Basic instructions on how to piece the front page and ideas for creating your book labels are given.

The small pincushion-sized book has space for pins, needles inside the cover and a small spool of thread in the spine. To weight it down, you can add sand, rice or pincushion filling of your choice along with polyester filling. There is also a place for a plastic insert on the bottom to prevent pins from poking through which makes it great for travel. It's so cute, it would even make a great gift for someone who doesn't sew!

This is an 8-page digital PDF pattern containing 2 pages that make up the cover, 4 pages of instructions, 1 template page, and 1 page on how to properly print and assemble your very own pattern booklet. All PatchworkPottery digital pattern booklets include metric conversion chart, stitches & terms section, illustrated step-by-step instructions, and full size templates.

For sizes and more information, please visit any of my shops. In addition to my MAIN SHOP, you can also find me on Etsy.

COMING SOON: Quilted Teapot and Partridge in a Pear Tree.

Enjoy your afternoon tea & quilted crafts :o)

  16. What a great idea! I want a pillow book for my chair, my bed, everywhere. I've been looking for something to make to go with a "first lines of great novels" mug I picked up for a granddaughter and what a great idea! I'm sure I'll think of more people to gift this. Thanks for the concept and will get the pattern ASAP.
