I’m back on the Christmas making gift bandwagon! For this round of gifts I’ve decided to sew up these adorable name pillows. The thing that drew me to this particular project is that the applique alphabet is included with the instructions (I’m fairly certain that most folks could figure out this ‘pattern’ for themselves, but I think finding whimsical applique letters to be difficult). The hardest part? Finding fabrics that I want to use for them! After 90 minutes of searching for material, I finally settled on some material for the girls (pictured on the right). Easton, however, is much more of a challenge. Why can’t there be more boy’s designs at aren’t designed for infants? Needless to say, I scrounged up a frog print and coordinating fabrics (I wasn’t really thrilled with what I had) only to be told by the little man, himself, that he really didn’t like the print. So now I’m back to the drawing board!
