After they left to go home, I had fun trying a little DIY project. Years ago, a friend's mom gave us travel pillows that she had made, and we've used them until they couldn't be used anymore, and now need to be replaced.
After googling "DIY travel neck pillows," I found this pattern/tutorial on Pinterest from a website called sew4home.com.
You print out four copies of the pattern -
Cut the pieces out and tape them together to make the basic pillow shape -
And then cut 3 of those pieces out of your fabric to sew together. They make a sort of 3-D triangle shape.
That shape becomes this pillow, after sewing and stuffing!
Mike picked this plaid minky for his pillow - so soft! There's enough fabric left to make one for me, too.
I like this fabric basket that was part of my gift from the gift exchange that my quilt group had.
That cardinal fabric is my favorite!
I know just what to keep in this basket!
I like that Book 3 in the Inspector Gamache mystery series by Louise Penny was ready for me to download on my Nook reader the other day.
My book club read one of these books for our discussion last year, and I liked it so much that I decided to go back and read the whole series from the beginning. These stories take place in small village in Quebec and in Montreal.
And I liked this - in her recent giveaway, Vicki from Vicki's Crafts and Quilting chose me to get one of her patterns, and here's the one I decided on.
Aren't those snowmen cute? I don't think it will be long before I make them.
Thank you, Vicki!
Hope you're having a great week, and that the busy holiday season doesn't have you in too much of a frenzy! I'm wishing you time to enjoy your favorite people and activities! ❤
