Still Sew Exciting!

Those of you who have been reading my blog for some time might remember a little project I took on several years ago. It was sewing a pillowcase for LO -- my first official sewing project EVER!

It turned out pretty decent, if you ask me (for a first-timer anyway):

LO's pillow!

Obviously I couldn't NOT do the same thing for my little guy Chase! I picked up some fabric the other day and finally got to work on it this morning. Minus the trouble with inserting a bobbin (involving an impromptu visit from my mom for assistance), I'd say things went rather smoothly! Here's my finished product:

Chase's pillow!

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure Chase was excited about his first pillow. Either that, or the "boy" in him came out as he started tossing the pillow into the air and/or across the floor. He had a blast playing with it, but I have to wonder whether he actually knows what it's for? Obviously never having used a pillow before, he just figured it was a new fun toy.

Checking out his new pillow for the first time... pointing to the animals.
Still pointing at the different jungle animals.
Tossing the pillow for the 1,200th time... :)

"Where's Chase?!" ~ "Peekaboo!"


  1. LOVE LOVE this!!! You did a great job mama :-)

  2. Very impressed! I wouldn't know how to even turn on a sewing machine. I love that chase looks just like his mom. Too cute. May I request a pic of you and Chase in the next post? Pretty please.
