Threading Your Way ~ Pillows and Cushions ~ Link Party

Welcome to the fifth edition of Threading YOUR Way with Threading My Way ...

... a new link list each week that will build into a resource of sewing ideas, tutorials, pattern reviews and pictures. Each list is an ongoing linky where you can link up as many projects as you like throughout the year.

Our first four linkys have been a great success, with such a wide variety of projects shared;: tutorials, pattern reviews, tips, hints and lots of photos full of ideas and inspiration. Our Bags and Totes linky has been the most popular so far, with 104 entries at last count.

Remember, these linkys are ongoing, so you can continue to add projects throughout the year. Add as many projects as you would like.

Our fifth linky for 2012 is everything Pillows and Cushions, made by YOU.

Pillows and Cushions
Link up any posts that you have written on Pillows and Cushions. Your posts might (but don't have to) include any of the following:
  • how you made it
  • tutorials
  • photos
  • pattern reviews
  • tips for making
  • what you learnt
As long as YOU have made it, link it up and show it off. Link up as many posts on Pillows and Cushions, as you would like. Come back through the year and add more.

Guidelines for linking up:
  • Each post needs to be about a pillow or cushion that you have made.
  • Link to a specific post (not the home page of your blog).
  • No direct links to shops or giveaways.
The fine print:
  • By linking up, you are giving me permission to use one of your photos in a feature. I will, of course, link back to your post, giving you full credit.
  • By linking up, you are giving me permission to pin your post to Pinterest. I pin all features to Pinterest, unless you specifically request me not to.
  • By linking up, you are giving me permission to share your post on social media - FacebookTwitterGoogle+
If you'd like:
  • Subscribe to Threading My Way (GFC, RSS), to keep up to date and to know if you've been featured.
  • Grab a button to spread the word about Threading YOUR Way with Threading My Way and put it somewhere on your blog. 
  • Visit some of the other links. Everyone loves comments.

I look forward to seeing your pillows and cushions...

  4. These links are so much fun Pam! Thanks for hosting.

  5. Hi Pam
    Ohhhh I so want to link up to your party. I love making pillows but I have not done a one yet due to my still in the mess from my move. Hopefully I can link up to your next one.

  6. Oh I take that back I have some men's shirt pillows I did that might work. I just thought about them.

  7. Thanks for the nice comment about my box cushions...
    The answer to your question....welting is just piping when it is on upholstery....I make my own...too cheap (frugal) to buy it. Probably should do a post about that "someday"!
    Thanks for hosting this!

  8. Hi Pam! Thank you for hosting this great link party! As you see I love to make pillows! I hope you don't mind even I have add pillows from last year because this year still so much in the beginning.
    Happy sewing! x Teje

  10. Great link party, some very inspiring makes!

  11. Thanks for the invite to your linky party!

  12. Thanks for hosting so many link parties. I have now submitted some cushions. I hope to meet some people with the same interests.

    Enjoy your weekend.

  13. Found you on Thank-you for getting this collection together. I've enJOYed looking at the ideas of others without having to surf all over the net. I don't feel my pillows are any different than many other sweater pillows. However, I'm constantly now eying sweaters for their texture & possibilities as pillows and have had to force myself to stop. Can one have too many pillows?

  14. Thanks for the invite! Wish I had more pillow projects to post here for ya! So glad you found Dwell on Joy :)

  15. Thanks for such an interesting party Pam I really love it and link up with my cushions
    Hope you will enjoy a visit at
    With love

  16. What a wonderful link party. I just discovered your fabulous blog at the Link Follower Blog Hop. I'm following you via Linky and GFC.

  17. All this wonderful creative cushions, make my idea look quite plain. Whenever one of my cotton summer skirts has served me enough time, i turn her into a cushion cover.

  18. Thank you for hosting this fun linky idea...:) Linked up a circle tree felt pillow.

  19. Ciao Pam! Dopo aver visto i bellissimi cuscini ho aggiunto anch'io il cuscino pinguino che ho fatto poco tempo fa!
    Buon fine settimana

  20. Pam, your blog never ceases to amaze me, I always find beautiful projects. I'm enjoying the publications of other group members and I'm adding the link to my How to sew a "Sausage Pillowcase" . Thanks for organizing all these themes, it's fantastic surfing here!

  21. I could not resist, I just added my smocking pillow here with which I participated in the folds fab challenge.

  22. Hi, I didn't quite know where to add my hot water bottle cover tutorial... but since you use a hot water bottle in bed, I thought I'd post it here... hope you're ok with that :-)
    Thanx for the party!!

    Seems I need an invitation to view this blog. Is it just me or are others getting this same message?

    Thanks again!

  29. When my boyfriend broke up with me 4 weeks ago..

    I did everything to get my boyfriend back but nothing worked.

    I contacted a relationship doctor i saw online.

    I told the relationship doctor everything,

    He promised to fix my relationship problem.

    I am the happiest lady on earth right now,

    Never too late to fix your broken heart.

    You can still get your lover back...

    Fix broken relationship/marriage...

    My relationship was restored as promised,

    My Ex-boyfriend came back,

    He promised never to leave me again

    Everything happened just in 3 days..

    I RECOMMEND YOU TO __________________
