Pillow pet

I’ve been meaning to show you the pillow pet I made last week for my sweet little daughter (she turns 7 TOMORROW!) I’ve been planning this project for nearly a year, but kept putting it off because I didn’t quite know how to approach it.  But then the other day when I started talking about sewing baby diapers, she begged me to first make her that pillow pet as I promised.

It is basically a rectangular pillow with a horse head sewn onto it.   Since I designed it myself and I don’t have much experience creating stuffed animals, the head turned out longer and thinner than I envisioned.   But the smile on my little girl’s face probably lets you know what she thinks of my effort.  🙂  It turned out to be a really fun project.

Next:  on to baby diapers!

Other sewing projects I’ve blogged about:

  1. that is adorable!

  2. I bet that gets cherished until it falls apart.

  3. That is fantastic! Great job, Mary!

  4. Mary, that is a darling pillow pet! The very pleased expression on that beautific face says it all!

    Nothing can measure up to a treasured object that Mama made just for you!

  5. I love this! I so wish I were crafty like you, Mary. I just bought eight pee wee pillow pets for my grand babies. They were on sale, of course, because I do love a good bargain, but it would have been so much more meaningful if I had been able to make them.
