We are thrilled and honored to have partnered with the amazing Nancy Zieman team for another fabulous sewing challenge! The 2015 Pillow Sewing Challenge kicked off on February 3. With roughly 80 entires so far, the challenge is going strong and there are still 2 weeks left to enter!!
Throw pillows seem to be the go-to project these days. They are quick and easy, but can make a huge impact on the overall look and feel of a room. They can easily be swapped out for various holidays or seasons and can often be completed in a few hours or less!
Four pillow projects from the Pellon Project Library are being featured as inspiration projects throughout the duration of the challenge. We’ll admit, they are a few of our favorites!!
