Over the weekend, we had a birthday party to go to. The mom didn’t want presents brought because they have tons of toys and would have lots of family at the event…. but really, who can show up to a party empty handed? Instead of bringing toys, I brought something handmade. I made personalized pillows! To speed up the sewing process (this was a last-minute gift idea – poor planning on my part), I skipped the patchwork border and used the same material as what I used for the namesback instead. I’ll have to remember that shortcut again because I was able to whip up these two pillows in about 3 hours (from cutting to stuffing) – making these a fun, last minute gift idea!
