Crafty Little Things to Sew: Reversible Chair Cushions

Hi Sewing friends! Today I get to be a part of the Crafty Little Things to Sew Blog Hop. Have you seen this book yet? It's the newest book by Caroline Critchfield-Fairbanks and the bloggers of SewCanShe. I get to give you a peek into it today and give you a chance to win a copy too. To enter just follow the instructions at the bottom of this post.
 

This book is full of cute little projects you can sew up in an afternoon. I love a quick sew, don't you?!
There are a few projects that I'm just itching to make. Like this Quilty First Aid Kit! I think my daughter needs this to keep all her meds, skin creams and ointments organized as she heads out to college next year.

The Two-in-one Lunch Tote and Placemat and the Spacious Spa Caddy look handy and super cute. 

 
I designed a project for the book too. It's called the Casual Coupon Pouch. I'm a little bit of a lazy couponer. I love a good deal but I don't have time to go to the extremes and find ALL the good deals. So I thought it would be nice to have a pretty little pouch that I could throw in my bag to store coupons and receipts so they don't clutter up my wallet, which is usually what happens. It looks like an ordinary pouch but there are dividers inside to help keep things nice and tidy.


Okay one more thing if you are still with me. I was lucky enough to get a chance to sew up a project from the book TODAY! I made cushions for my kitchen chairs using the Reversible Barstool Cushion pattern.

I was so excited to see this pattern because I've been wanting to make cushions for my new little table in my dining nook.
I made this table using a tutorial by Delia's Hairpin Coffee Table Tutorial.
Houndstooth decorator fabric from Fabric.com
While the pattern makes a reversible cushion that is so cute for mixing prints I decided to just use one fabric for the top, bottom, and piping. This little cushion is taking me one step closer to realizing my dreams of decorating my home in Joanna Gaines' style (LOL!). I think I need one with fun prints for my sewing seat though.

Since I didn't have a button cover kit on hand I just tacked the center down in 4 places to quilt it a little. I just love how they turned out. I wasn't sure how the piping would go but I just followed the instructions and it came out perfectly. Love!
