A sweet little pillow.

I made my son a pillow for daycare a while back, but somehow the pillow and the case were lost. I secretly think someone thought it was so cute that they must have it for themself. So I made him another one, and I love it even more than the first!

I used a great tutorial that Ariel has on her blog. I think I made the top fabric a little taller, just because I love that farm animal print. I learned a few tips the first time I made it, so the second one is a little better. First, I put his name on both the case and the pillow! I sewed in a name label like I use for his clothes. I also made sure to zig-zag stitch the hem of the envelope closure, just like the tutorial says to do. I have no idea why I didn't do that the first time. Finally, I use pinking shears to trim the seam allowance after it was all sewn. The first one had lots of fraying after just a couple of washes.
Here it is!
And just for kicks - The original.
