A few weeks ago we lost our family dog, Penny. She was the most amazing companion. Her loss hit us all hard. But, my mother has taken in particularly hard. So, I asked the wonderful I Sew Cute to help me out with a pattern. She was wonderful and generous enough to oblige. I got to stitching, hemmed the sides, and made it into a pillow for my mom Smiley I put some of Penny's fur in the stuffing so my mom will always have something of her near her. That may sound kinda odd to some people. But Penny was truly special and a part of the family. I'm shipping it out tomorrow. I hope my mom likes it. Ok... I'll stop blabbing and get on to the pics....







I can't thank I Sew Cute enough!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

This is awesome and beautiful.  We also lost a beloved dog, Shirley, a few weeks ago and I would be thrilled with such a sentimental momento.  I'm sure your mom was very moved by your gift.

Let me clear the tears from my eyes...Ok. That is one of the sweetest tributes ever. Losing a pet is never easy, sometimes it's as hard as losing a family member. My Tyler passed away early last year (11 year old kitty) and I cried two weeks ago when I found his blanket in the garage. I need to do something with it, like this maybe Smiley
