The lucky winners are Jaydeen C. and Alisha S.! Congratulations, and please check your email to find out how to claim your fabulous prize!

Today we’re highlighting Episode 712 “Blanket Pillow,” featuring guest Stacy Schlyer of the great blog Stacy Sews. What’s a blanket pillow, you might ask? Well, it’s a very cozy throw that folds up into a cute pillow when you’re not using it (you can see fleece and faux fur examples folded up in the picture below). Clever, right? On the episode, Stacy shows how to make the blanket pillow, and also demonstrates how to embellish it with adorable machine embroidery accents.
