Pillow Possibilities

Hi, it’s Cindy hosting our blog again today!

Possibility = Reality

I found this pretty buffalo check fleece and decided to make a travel pillow for a friend.  Who wouldn’t like a soft, cozy pillow when traveling by land, air or sea?  It’s very “packable” at 12 inches x 16 inches.


Since fleece stretches, I used the stretch knit stitch to finish the edges of the envelope closures and to sew the side seams.  I like the decorative look AND the fleece can stretch without the stitches breaking.


Here’s the finished product…I think I should will make one for myself!


Possibility Soon to Become Reality

I bought a tea towel with this fun vacation phrase.  I am going to find coordinating scraps and surround the phrase with patchwork.

The possibilities are endless…what would you do with it?  I’d love to hear from you…all suggestions welcome!

    Hi Cindy! I love your pillow and I definitely think you NEED to make yourself one of these pillows. I love the Buffalo Plaid print in all shades, but these blues look great. They kind of look nice with with the tea towel. I would probably just make it into a wall hanging. Happy Friday! ~smile~ Roseanne

      Hmmm, never thought about the buffalo check/tea towel combo! Yes, a wall hanging is a distinct possibility!

    Oh! I love it! I would make it a sign in front of an scene with a lake, the cattails, a red canoe and an appliqued fish jumping in the lake. Perfect for solids and a mix of batik fabrics!

      Thanks, Kat! Batiks would be nice and I do have lots of scraps! Will start playing around now that I am back from my Lake Michigan vacation!
