Made:

One pillow, with circular cut-out, cream on blue. I used a basic, 14×14 pillow form and canvas materials. The pattern was close enough on each fabric that it almost matched. I quite loved this pillow.

One prefab baby blanket. I am not usually a fan of these because the “creative” work is already done, but how cute is this? I machine quilted and hand sewed the binding. New and recycled materials were used for this project.

Both of these items were donated to a fundraiser to be auctioned off to raise money for the revitalization of a local town park. I hope they do well!

As per usual I waited until the last possible minute to complete a project or two….

Today is the boy’s very last day of junior kindergarten (insert major sad face here!).

He’s actually kinda sad about the whole matter because he really likes going to school despite having to follow rules and do work and all that stuff. I have a feeling he’ll be asking every other day if he “gets to go to school today?” And when I say no he’ll be sad until I can distract him with swimming or …swimming it’s summer, the pool is really the only place I want to hang out!

Leaving things until the last minute greatly diminishes the options I have for making things as well. Since I had only 6 hours or so, minimal options and somewhat limited materials, I decided to make pillows small ones.

The boy helped pick the materials and sort of coloured in the butterfly and bubble letters that I drew, then I did my part sewing and stuffing.

This is what we came up with….

I sent out an FB request to my friends for materials with which to craft.

One person gave me something.

One!  (thank you RP!)

And with a silent auction happening at work I was asked by the same person if I would make something for people to bid on.

Of course I can!

Now she asked for something specific but without a time frame there is only so much I can do. So I started with this and figure if I have another few days I can make a bag/purse like she requested.

This skirt was in the bag of clothes she gave me and when I saw it I immediately thought pillow.

So that’s what I made….

What do you think? Would you bid on this?
