Here’s the conundrum for a long weekend… sewing is relaxing and that’s what weekends are for, right? But it’s a loooong weekend, so that means there is time for fun and relaxing! But sewing is fun… right?
These are quick. Ish. They are the Sweet Liberty Tuffets from a pattern I had many years ago, a pattern that is now out-of-print. (All seven of the pincushions in the pattern were made with a single Minick & Simpson Charm Pack.)
But to celebrate Independence Day – Sweet Liberty Tuffets Schnibbles Pattern.
Last year, I also shared two Patriotic Pillow patterns. The first one is made with fabrics from Fig Tree & Co.‘s Coney Island collection – with one or two additions because I wanted all the stripes to be different. But any reds, blues and white-ivory will work! This pillow measures 12″ x 24″ finished and it’s titled Stripes & One Star – Stripes & One Star Instructions.
(You’ll forgive the hand-drawn diagrams, right?)

The second pillow is Stripes & Stars was made with Bonnie & Camille’s The Good Life, Basics and a stripe from Vintage Picnic. The background is one of my favorites – it’s from Miss Scarlet by Minick & Simpson. The pillow measures 20″ x 20″ finished.

If you’d like to know a little bit about how I make my pillows, including quilting, backing and putting in a zipper, you can read about that here.
I hope you’re getting a long weekend – this weekend or next. We had the option of choosing which one so I’ll be relaxing, having some fun and hopefully sewing this weekend.
Happy Friday and Happy July 4th!
