comfy sews: sunburst pillow tutorial

Have you heard? Shannon from luvinthemommyhood is back at it with another round of Comfy Sews vs. Cozy Knits! I was super excited when she asked me to join in, trying to defend the comfy sews turf sounded like fun.  Plus I know those cozy knits people have some serious packing power.

If you’re up for a comfy sew for your home this weekend, go check out my sunburst pillow tutorial!
 It’s made of really soft and pretty linen with a sunburst of pin tucks! Simple and elegant and modern.  And be sure to check out all the other fun stuff happening at luvinthemommyhood.
Have a great weekend!
