I made this dog pillow pet for C1 to use for when we travel. It’s nice for him/me to have a pillow. This is actually the first thing that I’ve made that C1 has shown great interest in. Other things he doesn’t seem to care for, but he hugs and loves this. It warms my heart.
I took a pattern for a stuffed animal/blanket and had to make it smaller. I used a $2 pillow from IKEA as the main body, and sized down the head to the appropriate size. Some button eyes (which have now been torn off and re-stitched on) and I think this makes for one cute pillow pet.
Oh, I love this soft fabric, it’s so nice to cuddle up with. Lucky for me, it doesn’t take much fabric to make one of these, so I’ve got plenty to make some more. I think I should do that and put some in my shop. If you would like one, let me know and I’ll get to sewing. My list to sew is so long that I just don’t know where to begin, but if I have a request or deadline, then I’ll put it at the top of the list.
