I made these for Christmas last year. They're both made from single blocks of a quilt pattern I happened to like.

The Pokemon pillow was made for my recently-married friends, both of whom have a healthy appreciation for pocket monsters. Conveniently, I happened to have three fleece Pokemon prints at my disposal. The green squares exclusively feature Treeko (light green) and Blaziken (dark green), while the purple squares feature Pikachu, Mudkip, Treeko, and Torchic. I also installed a zipper for easy washing (they're gamers, which experience has taught me means that eventually everything they own will come in contact with Doritos, haha).

The shark pillow was made for my boyfriend to match a quilt I gave him a couple years ago (one day I'll take photos of it so I can post that, too...). It's pretty small - maybe 12" wide - and has three of the six patterns I used on the quilt. Apparently it raises his head the perfect amount so that he can lie down while playing games (there's a zipper in this one, too, by the way, heh).

As a side-note, I see what they were trying to do with the sharks' teeth, but you can't honestly look at that shark on the right and tell me he doesn't look like he's got the derpiest overbite imaginable.

What great pillows.  I personally love using "kids" fabric because the projects end up looking so much more fun.  The fabrics on both the pillows compliment each very well too.  Great Job!

On a side note, I have to agree with you about the shark... I didn't notice it at first, but not I can't stop laughing about it.
