Fat Quarter Projects ~ Day 2

Here is a selection of items for your home you can do with fat quarters.

Shelley, from The House of Smiths, shows you how to make a fat quarter pillow.
How cute is this?

Take a look at the design potential for this next picture.  (No offense to chicken lovers.   I raise chickens and love 'em, but that's another story.)  This pillow comes with a tutorial, so swap out that country fabric for something modern, and you could have a totally cool pillow.   :)

Pillow pattern from Fat Quarter Shop

Here's a tufted pillow from a stitch in dye

Shivaya Naturals uses two fat quarters to make a rice pillow and eye pillow.  

This pillow has a lot of potential.  You could use different fabrics (especially great for fat quarters!) to give the pillow more contrast or add in different textures for more depth.  Overall, this is a fabulous pillow.

Burlap and Blue

This is a really cute table runner.  I think I just might need to make one for my bare table.

Polka Dot Chair

I found these cute napkin rings!  I wonder if you could turn these into wrist cuffs . . . 

I never thought about tucking my silverware into a placemat.

Susan Weinroth

Debbie, from Stitches & Seams, came up with a great idea to cover her bread.  Who knew whole grain could look so fabulous?
Bread Buddy

Fat quarter coasters.  Makes 8 coasters out of 1 fat quarter.  Not bad.
Made by Fabi

My potholders get dirty, grungy, and holey (is that even a word??) quicker than I can burn toast.  I like this idea because I can swap them out during different seasons.  You can see the tutorial here.

Need a door stopper?  Check out Oh Fransson's tutorial.

Here's a tissue box cover.  I like the fabric choice for this.

Coffee and Cabernet

Have you ever thought about covering your light switch plates with fabric?
This one is covered with paper, but you can use fabric.

Suburban Experiment
