It’s All In The Name

Aside from nursing a cold (that doesn’t seem like it will ever go away), I also got a start on the personalized name pillow project. I think I may have underestimated how long this project may take, because after a day’s worth of work, all I have to show for are these. I understand that the applique process is the most time consuming part of the project (I just need to create a boarder around the name, sew the backing, and stuff), but I really anticipated that I would have completed pillows by the end of the day – maybe if I would have children (and a niece) with shorter names, I would be! Tomorrow, I hope to have 3 completed pillows and a full review of this pattern.

By the way, I settled on the frog print (and coordinating fabrics) for Easton’s pillow. I just never could find any boy prints (locally or in my stash) that I thought would work. Thanks for everyone’s suggestions – I’m keeping them in mind for future projects!

    You and I must have the same stupid cold. I’ve had it for nearly a week now with now sign of it letting up. 🙁 The pillows look like they’ll be very cute! And I hear you about the lack of boy fabric, I know that Anne tries to pick up every boy print she finds, but even that isn’t very much. 🙁

      It seems to be what’s going around – everyone that gets this cold just can’t seem to shake it!

      I’m beginning to think that people just don’t sew much for boys (or don’t know what to sew) because there just isn’t a lot of themed fabric for them out there… and plaids and stripes get boring quickly!
