Fabric Frenzy Friday

Happy Friday!! I hope you all had a good week!  
We have a lovely Christmas bundle of fabric to share with you today.  I had a lot of fun with this festive bundle!  Be sure to scroll down to see what I made!

Santa's Village 


Santa's Village 



This week's bundle is called Santa's Village and features a sweet scenic Santa print from P&B Textiles!   Red, white, and light blue coordinates are included.
You'll receive 8 cuts:
  1. Christmas Village Santa & Friends - P&B Textiles
  2. Penny's Pets Bitty Daisies Red - Robert Kaufman
  3. Essentials Snowflakes Light Blue - Wilmington
  4. Small Dots White/Red - Riley Blake
  5. Christmas Village Woodland Friends - P&B Textiles
  6. Metro Living Square in Square Red - Robert Kaufman
  7. Imagine Snowmen Blue Snowflakes - Fabri-Quilt
  8. Pixies Square Dot Blender Red - Quilting Treasures

This bundle is so charming! I loved sewing up these pillows! I decided to make two different pillows to showcase all the fun prints in this bundle! To make both pillows I used a fat quarter bundle. 

The first pillow I made I wanted to feature the cute winter print and I thought this pattern would really do that!  You can find the tutorial here for this pillow! I did change mine up a bit - by not not adding the corner square triangles on the blue prints because I wanted to keep those pieces whole to really showcase the cuteness of the print!

The second pillow, I really wanted to feature how charming the main print is! So all I did was add a couple of borders.  This is a super easy and simple and you really couldn't whip up a faster pillow! :)

Cutting:
Out of main print: 16" x 16" square
Out of red: 2 - 1.25" x 16" strips and 2 - 1.25" x 17.5" strips
Out of blue snowflake: 2 - 2" x 17.5" strips and 2" x 20.5" 

Instructions: Start with the red border.  Sew the left and right strip (1.25" x 16") on and press. Then add the top and bottom strip (1.25" x 17") and press. 

Now sew on the light blue border: Sew the left and right side strip (2" x 17.5") and press.  Then add the top and bottom strip (2" x 20.5") and press. 



That's it my friends! Super easy and cute as can be! :)

I love this bundle of fabrics! The combination of black, red and white is one of my favorites!  I haven't made a pillow in a while, and so I figured it was time to remedy that! ;)  I love how it turned out!

I shared the tutorial for this pillow some time ago, and I forgot how easy the pattern was! It comes together quickly, and would be awesome to do this block as a repeat for a quilt! 

I used a the fat quarter bundle to make the pillow - including the backing (I just used two of the fat quarters for the pillow backing).  If you didn't want to make a pillow - you could easily make it into a table topper, or even make 3 blocks and do a runner!
