Highland Avenue House Pillow – Radiant Home Studio 2nd Birthday Celebration

Highland Avenue House Pillow from Hugs are Fun

Sara from Radiant Home Studio is celebrating her 2nd birthday with a sale on all her awesome patterns and also a blog tour. I jumped at the chance to participate and immediately knew I wanted to make the Highland Avenue House pillow.

I immediately knew that I wanted to add patchwork to it because I am currently obsessed with it. And because I can’t follow directions, I made some changes to it. Instead of appliquéing the windows and door, I made them into pockets. I cut out the fabric pieces and a lining fabric and sewed them right sides together, leaving an opening to turn. Once I turned it I pressed it, top stitched an edge along the top, and then stitched the opening closed when I stitched the pocket onto the pillow.

I had planned on giving Evie this for Christmas but I just couldn’t wait. I had to see her reaction, she loved it. This thing is absolutely enormous and I love that about it. If you want a smaller version, Sara does have the mini Highland House pattern, but this one is just so fun!

This is a really fun pattern and can be customized so many different ways. I love the little door that Stephanie from Swoodson Says added. I thought this would also be a fun chance to fussy cut some cute fabrics so that different animals or other shapes were in each of the windows!

    What a fun modification! This is such a good idea for using scraps, and I’m sure the kids will love storing all of their treasures in the pockets. Thanks for joining the blog tour!
