Mini Pillows & New Fabrics

Cakeify & Friends Mini Pillows

So my Spoonflower swatches arrived and have been cut and ironed and put up for sale. That means you can now make your own Cakeify, Bread Slice and Jammie Dodger mini pillows! Just pick up a swatch on any fabric of your choice, from plain old cotton to linen or silk, for a mere $5. They sew up really quickly and should be simple enough for anyone. I’ll also be selling kits later this year which will include a matching piece of fabric for the back and some stuffing.

For the reverse I have a couple of love heart fabrics in pink/white and red/pink, or you can do what I did and use some Hello Cakeify fabric, available in 4 different colours.

I showed you my ditsy hearts the other day – here’s the main design they go with – rainbow bunny bows!

I’ve finally organised my old swatches too so I’ll be selling a few sets of those very soon (pics on Flickr). I also kept some by for a giveaway so look out for that.
