It’s me, Melissa from the Polka Dot Chair here to share with you a fun sewing project for summer.

How to recover your old outdoor pillows and cushions. The project includes a sewing pattern and template for the cute anchor pillow!

Have you ever noticed that anything you leave outside just wears out over time? Even the stuff that is supposed to be outside? We live in Kentucky which is very humid and all of our cushions and pillows seem to get really grimy by the end of each outdoor season. So, I thought I’d show you how to sew outdoor pillows yourself.

How to recover your old outdoor pillows and cushions. The project includes a sewing pattern and template for the cute anchor pillow!

I couldn’t bring myself to just throw out the pillows so a couple of years ago I just started recovering them and it worked like a charm! You save the money of buying a new pillow insert and get a whole new look for your outdoor space. If you save your coupons and watch for sales you can get outdoor fabric pretty inexpensively, making this a great money saver for summer.

Recently we purchased a new settee for our back yard.. I can totally see myself laying there all day during the summer Diet Coke in hand :). The pillows that came with the settee were not the style that I liked and didn’t match the other fabrics we had on our back patio, so I decided to make new covers for them.

The tutorial I’m going to share with you today can be used to cover new or old outdoor pillows. If you don’t have existing pillows you want to recover, just make sure that you buy outdoor pillow forms from the store. Standard pillow forms will get moldy and stinky outside, you need ones especially made for outdoors.

On one of the pillows I added an anchor applique. If you’d like to make a similar pillow here’s what you’ll need:

  • -Pillow Form (can be any size), if you are recovering an older outdoor pillow throw it in the wash first.
  • -Outdoor Fabric
  • -Paper backed fusible web
  • -Ribbon
  • -Anchor Template (download it for free on my blog)

Okay, lets start.

First measure your pillow, and cut one piece of fabric that is 1″ larger than your pillow in both dimensions (width and height). For example my pillow was 20″ x 20″ so I cut a piece of fabric to 21″ x 21″. If your pillow is very “poofy” you’ll want to cut it about 1 1/2″ – 2″ bigger to account for the extra bulk.

Now cut two pieces of fabric for the back of the pillow. Each the same width as your pillow front piece. Then take your pillow height measurement and cut it in half and add 2″. So my pillow my back pieces were 21″ wide by 12 1/2″ tall.

sewing-with-outdoor-fabric

Print out the anchor pattern on your computer.

Trace it onto the paper side of the paper-backed fusible web. Cut it out loosely. Iron onto a scrap piece of outdoor fabric in a contrasting color.

anchor-pattern-free

Cut it out and peel off the paper backing. Iron it onto the center of the pillow front piece.

Using your sewing machine stitch around the outside edge of the anchor to secure it to the pillow. If you’re unsure about your stitching capabilities then use a thread the same color as your fabric, it will help to hide mistakes :).

Turn under one long edge of each of your pillow back pieces 1/2″ and press. Stitch in place to hem.

Pin the two pillow back pieces to the pillow front piece right sides facing. The pillow back pieces will overlap.

Stitch around the perimeter of the pillow with a 1/2″ seam allowance.

Clip the corners and turn right side out.

On the back of the pillow mark where the two pieces of fabric overlap. Stitch one piece of ribbon to each spot. Make sure to back stitch several times to secure the ribbon.

Now just slip the pillow into the new cover and tie the back!!

grad.gift.graduation.party.decor.printable

It’s a fun part of a full graduation party tablescape or decor package … or even as a fun and handmade graduation gift.

(See the full overview post here.)

Here’s how I made it – and the free printable!

I used a simple frame with a pre-cut 5×7 opening.

Then I printed the printable on high-quality paper – it’s made to look like gold foil.

Raspberry Jello Poke Cake http://tatertotsandjello.com/2015/05/raspberry-jello-poke-cake.html http://tatertotsandjello.com/2015/05/raspberry-jello-poke-cake.html#respond Tue, 26 May 2015 11:00:00 +0000 http://tatertotsandjello.com/?p=72398 Jello-Poke-Cake-Main-Image]]> It’s Laurie from Gallamore West and I’m excited to be back here sharing one of our family’s favorite traditional birthday desserts. May is a crazy busy month with three of six immediate family members celebrating their birthday this month.  And every single year my husband requests this Raspberry Jello Poke Cake for his May birthday. I love it because it’s so delicious and fruity, it looks awesome, and it’s easy… a total bonus since I’m in the kitchen baking all May long! 
 
 

Here’s how to make Jello Poke Cake:
 
1 box white cake mix, plus oil, water and eggs to bake cake according to cake box recipe 
(I always use Betty Crocker if I use a mix because they turn out the best)
1 small box of Raspberry Jello Mix (use any fruit flavor you like!)
2 cups boiling water
1 container of Cool Whip, thawed
 
Bake your cake according to the instructions on the package.  You can bake a large rectangular cake, or for a fancier cake, I bake mine in two 9 inch round pans so I can serve it on a pretty cake plate.  After baking, let your cakes cool completely.  Once the cakes have cooled, poke them all over gently. I use the back of an egg beater. I’ve tried this with a fork, but it just shredded the cake and didn’t make big enough holes. Find anything in your utensil drawer that makes a decent size hole and doesn’t just tear about your freshly baked cake. After poking it, it should look something like this. 
 
 
Mix together the packet of Jello powder with 2 cups of boiling water and stir until the powder is completely dissolved. Then slowly pour half of the hot Jello mixture over the holes on the first layer of cake.  Frost the first layer with Cool Whip, then top it with the 2nd layer of cake and pour the second half of the Jello mixture over the top of that layer. 
 
 
It may drip off the sides a little bit, and that’s okay.  It looks a little crazy at this point, but I promise you… this cake is delicious! 
 
 
Then just frost the rest of the cake with Cool Whip and refrigerate until serving. This cake is delicious, super moist, and it looks pretty too.  And it’s EASY to make. With little ones, delicious and easy are pretty much my two favorite requirements when it comes to baking. 
 
 
Jello Poke Cake is a family favorite at Gallamore West, and a perfect dessert for this time of year when Spring is turning to Summer, and light, fruity desserts are the perfect way to finish off your evening, or to celebrate a special occasion.  I hope you all have a great ending to Spring and are ready to welcome Summer with all of its light, fun, fruity desserts! 
 
Thank you for having me here at Tatertots and Jello, Jen! It is always truly a treat to be here. xoxo

I’m Kristin back again from Yellow Bliss Road with some patriotic printables for the 4th of July!

Free Printable America Banner

I love the 4th of July. Barbecues, friends, fireworks, what’s not to love?? It’s hard to believe that it will be here in just a little over a month, and we will be smack in the middle of summer already! It’s that time of year when people start thinking about adding a little patriotic color to their homes so I’ve designed a fun free printable patriotic banner for you.

There are two versions of the banner, one with red lettering and one with blue. Or you can mix it up and do a red and blue combo. There are also some pattered flags that you can add to either side of the banner.

Printable Red and Blue America Banner

The banner would be a fun way to add some color to your 4th of July barbecue, or just to add some Americana to your mantel.

To put the banner together, you’ll want to start by printing the banner on cardstock. If you want the most vibrant colors, I’d recommend having it printed at a copy shop like Office Depot. It’s usually around fifty cents a page. Cut the flags out that you want to use and attach them together with twine by punching holes in the corners and stringing the twine through. You could also ties the corners together with some pretty ribbon.

Free Printable Patriotic Banner

You can also find some coordinating printables at Yellow Bliss Road today. I’ve got Free Printable 4th of July Trivia Cards and Printable Envelopes that double as utensil holders!

Here’s an idea, updated thanks to my friends at Canon, that might work to remember both loved ones and those who died in military service!

1memorial.day.tatertotsandjello-5

 

One of our family traditions has been to write notes to my dad on his birthday … and tie them to balloons. It’s a great idea for Memorial Day, too — and you can use the free printables to remember your loved ones!

grandpa s birthday 001

(Look – we’ve been doing it for many years!)

Here’s what to do:

memorial.day.tatertotsandjello-2

Get some helium balloons, and print the free printables (below). You may also want to add small pictures to your notes. I’ve made two types of printables, both ones where you can write a name and ones where you can attach a picture. I loved how the printables came out using my new Canon Pixma iP8720 printer!

memorial.day.tatertotsandjello-7

 

And here are the printables!

Note that the first page has a big “blank” to write your loved one’s name, and a smaller “blank” after the heart to write your name, your kids’ names, or whatever you like! The second page is made to tape a picture onto, but do whatever works for you!

Just right-click this link or one of the images below and choose “save link as” to download the printable PDF. Print as many pages as you need! As always, these are for personal use only.

We think it’s a fun way to remember Grandpa!

I don’t know many college students who don’t LOVE pizza, so I thought I’d make a little punny card shaped as a pizza box:

Graduation Money Card

It’s perfectly small, perfectly punny AND it has a place for you to put as much “dough” as you’d like in it. You could even fill it with gift cards as well.

Graduation Money Card. Super Cute!

And there is even a little space for you to put some words of encouragement in as well…

Graduation Money Card. Pizza + Grads = Perfect!

So let’s get making…

Graduation Money Card. Love this!

Supplies for Pizza Box Card

  • Free printables at the end of this post
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Some sort of paper scoring tool

directions

  1. Download, print and cut out printables. I printed mine on a gloss cover (heavy) cardstock which gave it some good weight.
  2. Score on each of the white lines, cut on the red (wait on cutting out the red circle yet).
  3. I always like to fold on my lines first, so do that over the whole card.
  4. Start gluing on the little tabs part first. Fold them in, glue to the sides and then fold over the tops and glue the side flaps down. pizza box 3
  5. Fold over the front panel and cut out the circle. This is easier to do right now. Place glue on the flap and secure it to make your box.
  6. Glue in the two squares. I placed the “You can’t live without pizza…”on the lid and the “Congrats” on the bottom.
  7. Fill it with some “dough” and give it to your favorite graduate!
  8. You can tie it up with some cute string or use some washi tape to help it stay closed.
  9. You are done!
