package pillows

Remember the package pillows a few posts back?
Well, I put together a "how to" and you will be able to find it here and over there, 
in my sidebar. 
You can decorate a party table, make a bunch at Christmas time and place them under the tree or all around the house, or give them as gifts with something special in the small pocket.  Just have fun!
Have yourself a wonderful weekend.

So, so cute! Thanks so much for sharing your crafty wisdom, Leslie. I'm tempted to make one for my mom for Mother's Day. :-)

Loving the short blue one. And now I'm wondering if I have some good stash fabric for these...

And at Christmas time? Love!

rosie said...

I love these-I need to learn how to use my sewing machine! thanks for the instructions-that makes it seem a little more manageable.

Seanna Lea said...

Those are super cute!

Denise said...

I will definitely have to try this with the Amy Butler fabric I have :) thanks for sharing the info. These would be cute too with baby fabric for showers etc. You can give the mom a gift card in the pocket and later the baby can play with a very soft cube. Even make a few others smaller so they can be stacked :)

Brilliant! I use drawstring bags for Christmas presents (can't deal with all the paper), but these pillows would look amazing. AMAZING!

Thank you so much!

Super cute. The smaller blue cube is my fave.

Kendall Micayla said...

Lovely! I love the different sizes and colors, they are beautiful!
You should write a sewing book-you could probably do all the pictures for it yourself, and all of your sewing projects come out so well! :)

Hadley Gets Crafty said...

Step #14 is my favorite! Your tutorial is lovely. What program do you use to PDF it?

Suzanne said...

Thank you for the pattern, Leslie! I just made my first package pillow. It made the present so much more substantial. Besides my son loved bobbing the pillow around the house when it was finished. A gift card alone would never have had such loft.

Casey said...

I love these! I'm going to have to make one for my mom this week :)
