Alright, so a few days ago I announced that my seventh craft till Christmas is the stuffed animal/pillow . . . a pet pillow. This project is a double blessing because my kids have been begging for giant pillows and a pet of some sort. Hmmmm . . . I wonder if they will see a pet pillow as an adequate pet stand-in? I can always hope, I guess.
I've been busy the last couple of days . . . busy with everything but crafting and sewing. But tonight I actually had an hour to start on the seventh craft. I have to admit that as soon as I announced that I would be working on these pet pillows, reality sunk in and panic was right behind. Here's a news flash . . . I have no idea how to make a pet pillow.
But I have to start somewhere, so this is how my seventh craft began tonight:
Yes, that is my fabric . . . NOT ALL MY FABRIC though. Did you read my post a few weeks ago about my disease? Do you believe me now?
So I began my seventh craft - the pet pillow - by sorting through my fabric in hopes that I already had stuff I could use. Guess what. I don't. Bummer. I can probably use some of the fleece I have, but for the majority of the body, I need some plush chenille type fabric. So the seventh craft is on hiatus for a few days until I can make the 40 minute journey to the nearest fabric store.
I try to teach my kids good manners. I'm not sure how successful I've been though. But when I hear them say "please" or "thank you", I know my persistence is paying off. I try to use good manners on my blog too . . . giving credit where credit is due by linking back to projects or ideas from other crafty bloggers. I ask you to do the same. If, in some rare instance, you are inspired enough to blog about something I tried or use an idea you find here, please link back to me (if it's my idea) or the original blogger.
