This holiday season I’m not doing very many craft shows…in fact, I just had one. Which means – I can actually make things for my family for once! Today I put together a Gumdrop Pillow designed by Amy Butler for Pip using all her old baby blankets.
The blankets are soft, cuddly, cozy and full of texture – everything Pip just loves! The pattern calls for LOTS of stuffing – which makes sense…it is a two foot pillow. Instead, I took three of our older pillows and stuffed them inside first. Then I filled around them with stuffing. It’s not perfect but still super cozy!
Have I ever mentioned that I’m terrible at secrets? Well – I gave PIp her new pillow tonight. She immediately jumped all over it, demanded a blanket and snuggled right in! Jackpot! I may add a bow to it and add it to our family gifts on Christmas Eve…but we’ll see.
