Last week my uncle turned 80. He's had some health issues the past few months and did not want a party. Uncle is a huge train fan and mom made him up a lovely train quilt(you can read about it here). She did her's differently than the directions said to so she had quite a bit of fabric leftover. I had the idea to make a matching pillow.
I drafted out what I wanted, sewed it all together and ended up with a 19.5 inch front for a 14inch pillow. Huh?? lol. Out came the seam ripper, I pulled it all apart and started again.
Who knew making a pillow would make such a mess? And require 5 rulers lol.
This is what I ended up with.
and the back
I know it's not the most exciting pillow in the world but I was(am) happy with how it turned out. And my uncle was speechless when he opened our gifts.
Next up sewing wise...
2 love it too:
Great pillow to go with the quilt.
Worth every ripped stitch and all those rulers it took to make it, Rhonda! I think it's a great looking masculine pillow and I'll bet your uncle was very moved by the handmade gifts.
