On another note, I did a really fun (huge) present for someone, that would be a great present, home addition, or something for you! (warning cell phone pictures…again!)
This is the gumdrop pillow. This one is the 24” size, but there is also an 18” size. It can be used as an ottoman or a pillow. I had fun with it, until I had to wrap it up!
So did my daughter! She’s a little princess all the time! This pattern is an Amy Butler pattern. I love her fabrics, and the patterns from her that I’ve seen have been awesome. This was super easy, and went together in about 1 1/2 hours. The only thing that took a little longer was getting the stuffing. I actually bought a couple of cheapy pillows at Wal-Mart and stuffed it with them.
I actually started with a sheet (twin size) that I got for a few dollars, and made the whole thing out of that.
It was a really easy pattern, and not hard at all to put together. Clear and concise instructions. I mean, this is the way I had to sew it.
With a helper on my lap. Fun.
Would you like to make one? (or 10!) I contacted Amy Butler and told them I loved the pattern & pillow, and they sent me one to give to you!
I LOVE her fabrics, and of course, these are all made with her fabrics. Don’t they look so fun!? To go along with the gumdrop theme, I’ll also send you 2 handmade ornaments:
