February will be chock FULL of pillows here on the Sew,Mama,Sew! blog. We have a huge range of fun, new tutorials lined up from some very talented contributors. Everything is covered, with projects perfect for new sewists to more elaborate and challenging pillow patterns. We cover the basics and then show you how to branch out with things like piping, nifty closure options and more. We’ll post some lovely projects that are great for your Valentine, plus there will be lots of inspiration every day of the month.

We also have a Big Contest with some great prizes! You can find out how to enter on February 1st (and you will want to enter).

    I just made some total cheater pillow covers for our temporary home in London:
    You probably woudn’t want to use them as a tutorial b/c I break ALL of the sewing rules, but they sure brightened up our little flat!

  3. Steffi says:

    I love to sew pillows too.In my blog you can see some pillows which I sewed if you like.

  4. I am excited to have stumbled upon your blog via Jaybird Quilts! I need all the help I can get since I’m a beginner! 🙂

  12. Jennifer says:

    Yay yay yay! My husband and I were just lamenting he serious lack of throw pillows on our couches ( we DID have some), but the story of their demise is pretty (humorously) tragic. Just in time!

  13. heather says:

    As so many others, I am plotting some new accent pillows. Can’t wait to see some lovely ideas:).

  14. Kate says:

    I’m so pumped! I haven’t made a pillow in forever, and lately, I’ve been finding a ton I want but will not pay for. $60 for a “designer” pillow…they must be high.

    Anyway, now I want to make them for my living room, craft room and eventually, my baby girl’s room. She’s nearly ready for a big girl bed! But this pillow is on my craft room hit list for sure:

  15. Jen says:

    Yay! I’m so excited! I’ve bought fabric to make some pillow covers but I’m not too experienced in making pillows. Can’t wait!

  16. Kate says:

    This is great, I am looking forward to picking up some new tips and techniques!
