I am so FREAKING excited to share this Quilted Velvet Blanket project with you all! I have been drooling over the GORGEOUS quilted velvet blankets and bedding from RH, Pottery Barn and Pine Cone Hills for months! While I refuse to spend hundreds of dollars for a blanket that will be USED and ABUSED in my home, I did make a replication for much less! And I LOVE it!
George Costanza would approve…I also like to drape my body in velvet…
I have a sweet, fun tutorial to share with you today… a Valentine Pillow holder! This cute project helps add some festivity to a ho-hum holiday (in my humble opinion).
In all honesty, I’m not really a Valentine’s Day kind of person. However, the hubby and I decided that making the day special for our young daughters was important. Every year they are graced with flowers, chocolates and a sweet card from Daddy. Yes, I get those things as well….but that’s not really the point. This is a great unique project to personalize the sometimes impersonal nature of V-Day, and make it extra-special!
A dear friend of mine had asked if I could a hand-tied flannel blanket for her sweet little boy for Christmas. She already had fabric picked out, a sweet Baby Yoda themed flannel. How could I say no?!? Of course I would do that! BUT….I’ve never made one before.
I thought to myself, why not share this process? I have many skills to draw on to make this item, even though I haven’t made this exact thing before.
We all can do more than we think, we just have to draw from what we DO know!
I LOVE a good blanket scarf….and my closet shows it! The cool thing about scarves is that they are super simple to make, especially a blanket scarf. Like literally you cut out a square of fabric….and that’s just about it. Let’s review in detail…
The method used to sew a pillowcase in this tutorial, is referred to, as the magic method or burrito method. This technique is used to enclose the seams found between the border and the body of the pillowcase.
