It was my husband's birthday a few weeks ago and I had been promising him FOREVER to replace his favorite pillow for him (yes, I took the old one and tossed it thinking I would whip him up a new one in no time). It took me a while to come up with what I wanted to do. He would have been happy with just a couple fabrics slapped together, but I thought and thought and thought some more about that darn pillow. It had to be perfect, or so I thought.
I ended up waiting until his actual birthday to make the first pillow. Mistake. It was so hard keeping the girls occupied while trying to come up with a cool design for the pillow. I finished it just in time - and he loves it. yay.
I had also planned on making a few more pillows to throw on the couch, so I finished the last two up last night. Made me really happy to check that one off my list, I had been putting it off for long enough.
I ended up making the big square pillow forms myself which was really fun, but the rectangular ones are small travel pillows. I lined all but one pillow with muslin for a little more sturdiness (I love it!). The first pillow I made using fusible fleece and quilted it with straight lines, but I prefer the other versions a little better.
