The Hunter Boy’s pillow is done and I love it! This one is a flannel pillow and I think I just might have to make some flannel pillowcases for me. So soft!! I love flannel sheets but Hubster doesn’t. Boo Hubster!!! For someone who is perpetually cold, why he doesn’t love flannel sheets I will never know. And myself, who is perpetually hot, but loves flannel, is a mystery. Anywho.
I knew these fabrics would be perfect for a Road Trip for my Great-Nephew when I saw them. I had so much fun gathering the pieces.
My intention was to use the Moose as the case, the deer striped fabric for the cuff, and the red and check for the pocket and monogram. Only, when I got to the construction stage I realized the check and red would not create the contrast I wanted. So I used the check for the pocket, lined with the red, and a remnant of the moose to cut out the monogram.
H is for Hunter Boy and his love of deer, OK, I know there is a moose on there too.
I miscalculated when I cut the striped deer piece and subsequently the cuff edge doesn’t show the stripe I wanted, but it’s not that big of a deal. Now I am halfway done with the Road Trips I plan to make. I added 3 more to cover my cousin’s grandbabies. I used to make all kinds of things for her girl’s when they were growing up, so it’s only natural that I make things for the oldest daughter’s little ones. The younger daughter just got married, so I suspect in a few years I will also be making things for her little ones. At least sewing is quicker than knitting! But I know those future little ones will still be getting a hand knit something.
