Fabric Frenzy Friday #97

Happy Friday friends! I am so happy it's the weekend! I am also really excited to share this week's bundle with you!  I got to sew up some lovely and easy projects out of this range of prints! So be sure to scroll down for the tutorials! ;) 


Cappuccino is this week's Bundle Batch!  Warm up your fabric stash with this bundle of cappuccino browns!

Fat Quarter & Half Yard bundles include 8 different prints. 
Included in each bundle:
  1. Nested Owls Grid Dot Mocha - Adornit
  2. Beauty is You Seeds Brown - Blend Fabrics
  3. Pinhead Dirt - Michael Miller
  4. Painter's Canvas Brown - Michael Miller
  5. Miniatures Cream Dots Brown - Windham
  6. Grunge Basics Hot Cocoa - Moda
  7. Essentials Petite Dots Black Brown/Ivory - Wilmington
  8. Marble Swirls Mink - Moda

First up is this Heart Pillow!  You know how much I LOVE color, and a lot of my projects are so very  bright! This one however, is very neutral and I am in LOVE! I love the softness and simplicity of this monochromatic pillow.  It so cute, but very understated and lovely at the same time.  I used some linen for the background, and thought it just worked perfectly with all those brown prints. 


  • 1 -16.5" x 16.5" square of linen (for front piece)
  • 2 -12" x 16.5" squares for backing
  • Print out template and cut out heart template. 
  • 16 hearts backed with fusible web (out of various brown prints) I did two of each print. 
  • Place hearts in a 4x4 grid - leave 1 1/2" on each edge. 
  • Place a piece of batting on the back of your pillow front and pin into place
  • Stitch the hearts into place - I did a simple straight stitch.  You could do a blanket stitch or zig-zag as well.
  • Follow directions HERE to make into a pillow. 
That's it! :) Super easy and cute! Now let's get to my next project! 

Cupcake Mug Rug!  This was a so simple to put together, and I thought it would also make cute pot-holders as well!  I added some hand quilting and embroidered some sprinkles on the top of the cupcake - for some extra cuteness! ;)

  • Out of linen: 1-  7" x 7.5" 
  • Out of brown border: 2 - 2.5" x 7.5" 
  • Out of brown border: 2 - 2.5" x 11"
  • Out of binding: 2 - 2.5" x WOF strips

  • Cut out template and then trace onto your fabric that is backed with fusible web.  Cut out shapes, and iron them into place on  your piece of linen. 

  • Add your border.  Sew the left and right border on and press.  Then add your top and bottom border. Press. 
  • Now layer a piece of batting and backing and quilt as desired.  Making sure you stitch down your appliquéd shapes! I machine stitched mine! 
  • Now you are ready to bind! 
I hope you enjoy this bundle as much as I have! :)

I'm a bright girl too, but I stretched myself recently and made a quilt using only neutrals. The result I think is fantastic, and the quilt is done! Love the pillow...and I think the choice of linen is inspired. Thanks for hosting!

I never would of thought to use browns for hearts! Love it!!

Love the brown cushion cover with the hearts. Very nice concept and really simple to make as well!

Not sure if you're aware but the link for directions on how to make the pillow is broken unfortunately.
