I gave you a sneak peak of this little sewing project a while back... a long while back. Finally, I had an afternoon with nothing to do so I decided to finish it off. And, I was also feeling guilty over the fact that I had stolen Eme's pillows for my own room. Well, not really.
Anyways... the pillow is finished! This pillow has a little something for everyone. On one side it's got a little chevron. Pink chevron... created by yours truly. It only took me several hours to figure out how to turn stripes into a chevron pattern... and then several hours to figure out how to sew it together. Emerson, you're worth it.
But wait! The other side's a bit of a surprise... we've got stripes AND buttons. This proved to be much much easier than I thought. Pop a new foot onto my sewing machine, push a few buttons, (consult manual), and perform a little other sewing wizardry... and you've got yourself a perfect button hole times 3.
Now for a bit of a safety disclaimer... Eme doesn't get to sleep with her throw pillows. This is a safety no no for small children. They usually live on her chair and pretty up the crib on special occasions-- like photo taking occasions.
What's that Caleb? You love Eme's new pillow too?
Before I knew what was happening Caleb had scaled the crib, stolen the pink felt flower pillow and had run off with it for his own room. When I went to retrieve it I found it sitting pretty on his dresser. True story. And a shameless little excuse to fit a picture of these cute kiddos into this pillow related post :)
