I have to admit I had no idea where to put these, I hope this is ok!
I made these for my co-worker who likes to take naps at lunchtime. She always put her head down right on the desk so I figured I'd help her to be a little more comfortable. I saw the sunshine pillow here on craftster (thanks kiwidragons for the inspiration!) and did it a little differently.

So here's the pillow, with my cell phone next to it so you can tell how big it is.

And the sleep mask. I used a tutorial I found online. It was awesome cuz it came with a pattern and everything. I only did it wrong ONCE!

Feedback appreciated, thanks for looking! Smiley

I love when our successes are based on how few times we get things wrong. But I really like the pillow and sleepmask. Is the sleepmask fabric silky like it looks? I hope your coworker likes them too.

I think your coworker will love this gift.  It's too cute to not love.  Great job.  Thanks for sharing.

AW that sunshine pillow is so cute!! I love interesting pillows, so this one really stands out to me. Very cool.
You should make lots of random-shaped pillows. Smiley

Here's the link to the pattern and tute that I used. It even has pictures! I had some trouble with it too though- I also made it harder than it needed to be.


Thanks everyone for the compliments! Smiley
