I just moved from Canada to the USA and from being a working mother to a stay at home mother.  Things are different but after several months without any of my stuff,  my sewing kit/fabric arrived as well as a brand new sewing machine for my 40th bday.  So what do I make?  Pillows for both my girls, my nephew and a few friends.  I used Kellie (from Don't Look Now) inspiration and used some of her free tutorials to create these pillow tops.  Then I used Elizabeth Hartman's (from Oh Fransson!) tutorial on how to put a pillow together without a zipper and voila new sewing projects.  Now sadly it didn't take as much time as I'd had originally thought so I'll need a bigger project to keep my mind happy but for now it will have to do.

for my girls - the fronts

and the backs

for my nephew

for my dear friend's little girl

I'm not sure which one I like the best, they were all fun to make.

comments always welcome!

They are lovely, are they quilted?

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Oh my goodness those are so cute! I've never thought of making name pillows, what a great gift idea. I especially love the rocket one!
Feel better too! You sound a little sad to me. I'm sending you good thoughts!!  Smiley

 Kiss Kiss and hugs to you, you do sound like you need them!  I LOVE those cushions.  Making them personalized like that is a real treasure to the receiver...something of their very own from someone who loves them!

thank you! and yes they are all appliqued and quilted using free motion, which on my new Sapphire Husquvarna is awesome!  I also used the Steam a Seam Lite to put them in place, and am loving that!

I'm not so much sad as bored but I hope once I get into a better routine other than dropping kids off and picking them up should help!  I'm a type A and find staying home harder than working and taking care of my children.  At least mentally tougher!

Cute!   I love the flowers.   

My son has a friend named Eamon, never heard it anywhere else but him until now.
