One of my all-time favorite things to do in the summer is have BBQs with friends and family. I love grilling and creating easy and delicious recipes. I was super excited when Hebrew National asked me to be a brand ambassador this year and I can’t wait to share more fabulous grilling recipes with you. Their hot dogs are my family’s favorite and I love that they are made with 100% premium Kosher beef (no fillers or by-products), which enhances its great taste. I got to fly out to NYC for the day a few weeks ago and it was so great to meet their team and eat some delicious food.

Easy Sew Outdoor Pillow

Easy sew outdoor pillow – Learn how to make your own outdoor pillows with this simple sewing tutorial.

Summer is coming and that means more time spent outdoors relaxing with family. So, why not whip up an easy sew outdoor pillow to create a comfortable lounge space for your family and guests.

Hi, it’s Kara from A Kailo Chic Life, and today I wanted to share my tricks and tips for making your own outdoor pillows.

Easy sew outdoor pillow - Learn how to make your own outdoor pillows with this simple sewing tutorial.

The Supplies:

  • Old bed pillows that have lost their fluff (or new standard bed pillow inserts, but why not use the old ones for these pillows and the new ones for your bed?)
  • 1/2 yard of Polyester Outdoor fabric for each standard size pillow (I am partial to Premier Prints line of cute outdoor fabric)
  • Sewing machine and basic sewing supplies

Begin by measuring your pillow insert (I like to use large bed pillows so that there is more surface area to sit on, and they tend to be cheaper than inserts you get at the craft store). You will now want to add 2″ to the length and 2″ to the width of the measurements from the pillow and cut two pieces of your fabric to this size. For example, my pillow measured 18″ by 24″, so I cut my fabric to 20″ by 26″.

Easy sew outdoor pillow - Learn how to make your own outdoor pillows with this simple sewing tutorial.

Once you have your fabric cut to size, put the right sides together and sew around three sides of the pillow case and 4-5″ in from each side on the last side. This will leave an opening for you to turn the pillow case right side out and insert the pillow.

The pillow that I used was very fluffy (about 2-3″ deep), so I wanted to make flat corners for the pillow case to give the pillow more of a square look. To do this (while the pillow was still inside out), I lined up the side seams on two edges to create a triangle at each corner and sewed a 2″ seam at each corner. This seam will square off the corners.

You can see what I mean about this stitch squaring off the corners above. Once you have all four corners stitched, cut off the extra fabric at the corners and turn the case right side out.

Insert your pillow into the case and then pin the opening closed and either hand stitch or machine stitch (this is difficult, so feel free to hand sew it if you are a beginner) the opening closed.

Congrats on completing your first pillow! Feel free to add yarn poms to each corner if you wish, or leave it as is. The outdoor fabric will repel moisture and prevent mildew from growing on the pillow, but I would still recommend keeping the pillows on a outdoor covered patio or putting them away before a storm.

ONE POT Cheesy Enchilada Pasta

This ONE POT cheesy enchilada pasta recipe is so simple and completely delicious. It’s done in 30 minutes from start to finish and is a family favorite!

My husband and I absolutely LOVE enchiladas. That was the first dish I made as a married couple and I’ve made them hundreds of time since. While my kids are still not so sure about them, they absolutely loved this enchilada pasta. My daughter even asked for seconds the last time I made it. I was shocked! That may have been a parenting win. I’ll take one wherever I can get it ;)

This pasta is the perfect meal to make on busy weeknights, when you need something quick. It uses ingredients you probably already have in the pantry and is made using only ONE pot, just like my burrito bowls. Less dishes are always a good thing, right?!

Just look at all that cheesy goodness. YUM! This pasta is great loaded up with toppings as well. I love the flavor addition of cilantro.

One Pot Enchilada Pasta

Yield: 6 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb lean hamburger
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Old El Paso taco seasoning
  • 1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chiles
  • 2 (10-ounce) can red enchilada sauce
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can chicken broth
  • 1/2 lb ziti noodles (about 2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Optional toppings: tomatoes, avocados, sour cream, cilantro, olives, green onions

Directions:

Cook the hamburger in a large skillet over medium heat until browned. Stir in the onions, green chiles and taco seasoning and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in enchilada sauce and chicken broth and bring to a boil. Then stir in the noodles and bring the heat to low. Stir and then cover. Cook for 10-12 minutes, or until the noodles are cooked. Stir halfway through to prevent the noodles from sticking.

Remove from heat and stir in sour cream and 1/2 cups cheese. Then sprinkle the remaining cup of cheese on top and cover with the lid until melted.

Top with your favorite toppings.

Ruffled Zipper Pouch

Ruffled Zipper Pouch – a fun accessory to hold all of your essentials or everyday items neatly in your purse.

Between my purse and my diaper bag, I am always in need of keeping things more organized. I have a tendency to have to take everything out of my bag just to find that last piece of candy to calm down my toddler in the store, or the few dollar bills I know I put in my purse for a quick drive thru stop.

Ruffled Zipper Pouch - a fun accessory to hold all of your essentials or everyday items neatly in your purse.

My solution… this little ruffled zipper pouch. It’s the perfect little pouch to carry candy, change, diapers, receipts, coupons, or just whatever you need to place in it.  This zipper pouch is a basic pouch tutorial with a touch of pretty :)

Feel free to adjust the measurements to whatever size you would like to make the bag. You can make it larger, smaller, taller or wider.

Supplies:

  • (4) 7 inch x 11 inch fabric pieces.  Two should be the main fabric and the other two should be the lining fabric
  • (2) 6 1/2  inch x 11 inch felt or batting pieces, optional
  • (1) 30 inch x 2 inch piece of fabric for the ruffle, optional ( just make this 3 times the length of your main piece)
  • Sewing Machine
  • Hot Iron
  • 12 inch zipper, or larger

DIRECTIONS:

Begin by folding your ruffle fabric piece in half, pretty sides touching. Sew with a 1/2 inch seam allowance. Turn right side out. You should have now have a long large tube.

Determine where you want your ruffle on your main piece of fabric.  Fold accordion style on your fabric and pin in place.

Sew down the middle of your ruffle, removing the pins as you go along.

Ruffled Zipper Pouch - a fun accessory to hold all of your essentials or everyday items neatly in your purse.

Fold over the top edge of both your main piece fabrics and lining fabrics by 1/2 inch and press with a hot iron.

Ruffled Zipper Pouch - a fun accessory to hold all of your essentials or everyday items neatly in your purse.

With your zipper facing you, place your main fabric piece on top of the zipper and your lining fabric at the back of the zipper.  The ugly sides of the fabric should be touching each other.  I didn’t add batting to mine but if you decided to add batting it should be sandwiched between the top part of the zipper and the back of the main piece of fabric. Pin in place and repeat with the other side.

Ruffled Zipper Pouch - a fun accessory to hold all of your essentials or everyday items neatly in your purse.

Once you have pinned your fabric in place slowly sew as close to the edge as possible.  If necessary stop sewing and make sure you are sewing through all layers as you go.

Once you have sewn all the layers to the zipper you will want to unzip your layers half way.  This will help when turning later on.

Ruffled Zipper Pouch - a fun accessory to hold all of your essentials or everyday items neatly in your purse.

Lay both main fabric pieces and lining pieces together, pretty sides touching, and pin in place.  Sew around all the edges making sure to leave a 4 inch gap in your lining.

Ruffled Zipper Pouch - a fun accessory to hold all of your essentials or everyday items neatly in your purse.

Turn your bag right side out.  Pull out the lining and sew the gap closed. I like to just sew around the whole bottom of the lining.

Insert lining into the bag and voila! you have an adorable bag that can hold all your essentials in one pretty place! :)
