Coming Soon: Mini Pillow Kits!

Sometimes even I get bored of keeping secrets so here’s a peek at something that will be available later this Summer – mini pillow kits! You can make Cakeify, Jammie Dodger and Bread Slice and the kits will come with everything you need to sew them up. I sewed mine at the weekend and it literally took half an hour to do all three. You’ll also be able to buy the fabric direct from Spoonflower and choose your own backing fabric and filling.

I hoped to have them available sooner but I’ve been tweaking the design and now Spoonflower are changing their colour profiles so I need to wait and see how they’ll print in future.

What do you think? Any other characters you’d like to see?
