Can you tell I've been listening to Christmas music?
All my favorite songs and carols filled the air while I made gifts for our grandchildren.
This afternoon I finished their "sprocket pillows." I'm so happy to show them to you.
I'm pleased with the way they turned out.
Each pillow reflects the personality/interests of the child who will receive it.
Emma, twelve, is very feminine. Her room is painted lilac, so I chose pretty floral and solid fabrics for her pillow.
Oliver, nine, is a baseball boy. I found a really fun baseball print at the local quilt shop. Paired with the red and blue fabrics, I think it very much reflects "America's (and his) favorite pasttime."
Isn't the star pattern on the back cute?
Damon, ten, is a science guy. He's fascinated by insects, plants and animals. 'Twas a bit of a challenge finding the right fabrics, but I think I did okay with the final selections.
The paw prints on the back keep things lighthearted.
So that's it. It feels good to have these finished. They were a lot of fun to make. Pretty easy, actually. I plan on making some for myself in 2014.
If you're interested in making sprocket pillows, here's the tutorial at Cluck, Cluck Sew.
