There never seems to be enough hours in the day, and that ever-growing "to-do list" is usually calling your name. So when you do find time to be creative, you want every minute to count. As a way to give you a huge amount inspiration at a glance, we've recently unveiled a new category here at Sew4Home: the Project Index.
Last August, we introduced you to six pillows chockfull of our own crazy personalities - from a sneaky crocodile to romantic roses and lace to a Nancy Drew® secret pocket pillow. At the same time, we encouraged all of you to use a Fairfield insert or filler to make a pillow with pizzazz, then enter it to win! The pillow entries went directly to Fairfield and were posted on their Facebook wall as well as onto a special board on their Pinterest page. The twenty photos that generated the most activity at these social media outlets were collected as the semi-finalists. From theses top twenty semi-finalists, an industry panel of judges selected the five major winners. Today we officially congratulate all the winners and show you their winning pillows.

We hope you've enjoyed the Oh Baby! series, sponsored by our good friends at Fabric.com. From classic snap-on bibs to sleek bottle carriers to our most stylish diaper bag ever, it's been two weeks of big fun for little folks. We realized once we got done, many of the projects were a two-in-one bonus, featuring a main item with a coordinating carrying case. We had a great time shopping for this series at Fabric.com. With all the amazing fabric choices these days, you're no longer restricted to traditional bunnies and duckies (although, we do still love bunnies and duckies). It's a wide open world of fabric mixing and matching, and Fabric.com is a wonderful resource for everything you need. To emphasize that point: one lucky Sew4Home fan will be going on a dream shopping spree. Fabric.com has provided us with a $250 gift certificate. It's the perfect prize... just in time for holiday shopping!
One-Two-Three lucky winners! We congratulate the winners of the two treasures chests of FreeSpirit and Rowan fabrics from our Romantic Bedroom Retreat series as well as the winner of the Fabric.com Weekend Wonders bundle-o-fun. Our thanks to everyone who entered, plus an even bigger thanks to all our friends and sponsors for making it possible!

If you love piecing and patchwork, you probably also love pre-cuts. If you're new to this world, a 'pre-cut' is just what its name implies: fabric already cut into a specific size from within one specific collection. Pre-cut bundles of fabrics have long been a favorite of quilters; but recently, all kinds of sewers, including the gang here at Sew4Home, have become fans. Pre-cuts shorten your cutting time and give you an affordable way to purchase an entire collection of fabric. One of the most common is the Charm Pack, a bundle of 5" x 5" squares. Today, we have SIXTEEN pretty Charm Packs from Moda Fabrics to give away. We've broken them into four sets of four to make four Sew4Home visitors happy.
I love the change of seasons. Leaves kick along the sidewalk like tiny tumbleweeds. The early morning air has the damp, clean smell of freshly washed sheets. You can finally wear your favorite wool sweater without fear of passing out from heat exhaustion. Fall is wrap-me-up season, time to get comfy and cozy with your sewing projects. We've selected twelve classic tutorials that are sure to make you feel warm and fuzzy... or as we say at our houses: "toasty and bundle-y."
