Bench Buddy Series - June

Come join Lois and make the June designs for the Kimberbell Bench Buddies.  We will make the 5 1/2" x 9 1/2" rectangular pillow.  Fabric kits are available for purchase.

We will be celebrating the wonders of the Summer months.  You will want to make them all in the series from May through August.

Bench Buddies, our petite pillow series, beautifully match our popular Bench Pillow patterns. Make a new pillow cover, then simply switch out the pillow form for the new holiday and season! The two designs for each month fit our 8” square or 9½" x 5½” rectangle pillow forms. 

All embroidery designs can be stitched in a 5×7 hoop. Although not required, some Bench Buddies can be stitched in larger hoops for a single hooping.  Sewing version also available.

File formats include: ART, DST, EXP, HUS, JEF, PES, VIP, VP3, and XXX, with SVG files also included for electronic cutting machines.

Fabric kits are available.
