I know, I know, I'm running late. I had the best of intentions to at least get this post up whilst it was Friday somewhere in the world but alas... it wasn't meant to be. Oops. I hope that you can forgive me, though, as I have managed to finish another two personalised pillows this week (that makes four since last weekend), just in time for Christmas.
Before I start I must warn you that the pictures in this post are even worse than my usual (poor) efforts. Oh man, am I grumpy about it too. Just ask Mr C. So, please excuse the lack of quality... and just imagine the fun, bright, child-friendly fabrics. A little imagination will go a looooong way. ;)
Each of the pillows are 18" so are big and funny and squishy, perfect for the kiddies. They all have zip closures, on the back, so are removable for washing. I think this is a must for messy little ones!
On top of the pile, is a tractor for Rowan. I think this one is a bit of fun and, hopefully, Rowan will get a kick out of it for a few years to come. What little boy doesn't love tractors?
I kept to my usual simpleness and left the back plain. I'm starting to worry about this decision... but can always whip up another, speckier design if Rowan complains.
Secondly is a duckie for Rowan's big sister, Lara. I'm really pleased with how this one turned out so I hope Lara loves it too.
For the back I went out of my comfort zone and did some basic stripes. I have to admit, I can't say I love it but I do think it's cute. And the little Spoonflower swatch that I pieced in is a little bit of fun.
On the bottom of the pile is Mitchell's pillow but I can't reveal this one just yet. Infact, as Mitchell's mum is the World's Biggest Present Snoop (you know it's true), I've pre-wrapped this one and reinforced it with a fair bit of sticky-tape. Fingers crossed that's enough to keep away prying eyes. ;)
All I can say now is THANK GOODNESS IT'S FINISHED!
I'm linking up to this week's TGIFF, hosted by the gorgeous Lucy at Charm About You. Lucy has a "bleeping awesome" finish to share so be sure to check it out. And, while you're there, click on some of the other links to see what goodies people have finished.
