This is Jacob and his fake smile: He seems to really like the pillow as he has been carrying it around with him since I finished it. It makes me feel all warm and gushy when he does stuff like that. The fake smile is because he wanted to be laying on the pillow, not posing for Mommy.Abby seems to like hers too:
This is both Jake and Abby's all done:
And the backs...Abby's isn't all that exciting, but I think the pieced back on Jacob's is adorable. Also, his is done entirely in flannel and it is so soft and snuggly...I think that is totally the way to go for a huggy soft pillow. The cotton on Abby's is cute, just not as soft.
This is for my neice, Eve. Her name is short so I made a flower to go on hers...This one needs stuffing and sewing closed. Back is the same pink floral as the backround.
This is for Eve's sister, can you guess her name? I think this one will have a pieced backing.
Oh and one more. But don't worry Alexis, I am not actually making this one, our friend Andrew came over to pick up his car and started one, I only provided the tools and fabric (and dinner).
Now I need to head to WalMart to get a giant box of stuffing (no it's not called batting, those are two different things used for different purposes). I have gone through my stash that I use for stuffing my bears and will need more for both bears and to finish the pillows.
Ok I am gonna go get the kids some breakfast and then we are off to Wally World.
