As a quilter, I would love to make everyone a quilt for every occasion….but unfortunately that isn’t possible. My nephew C, turned 2 yesterday and he loves Curious George, so I knew he needed more “monkey” in his life. I let the kids help me make him some pillows using brown flannel and some fablique’s that I got on sale at Joanns.
Isn’t it darling?!?!
The I saw that I had some solid yellow fabric and some leftover brown flannel. I decided to make him a cuddly blanket to drag around with his pillows.
I used this tutorial (which I had done it the past with fantastic results). But this time I did something wrong because I ended up with a box looking shape. Upon reflection, I realized that my mitered border was not so mitered.
So I pulled and stretched but it wasn’t going to lay flat….hmmm what to do. I have an acute aversion to my seam ripper so I decided to stuff the darn thing and call it a floor pillow.
I used some batting scraps in the bottom to help it hold it’s shape and filled the rest with fiberfill. The little man loved it and I guess that is all that matters.
Thanks for looking!!!
