Owl Nursery Pillow

As you may have seen in my previous post, I got to work with a really cute owl fabric! It was for another pillow! You may recall my first attempt at making a pillow went surprisingly well. They say that practice makes perfect and it's true because this one came out even better.

Lauren became a new mom this month! She had fantastic curtains made from the owl fabric for the nursery. She had JUST enough left over to make something with. She asked if there was enough for a pillow and I jumped at the chance to make it. I had so much fun the last time and this is just such cute fabric I had to make this pillow.

I made the cording from brown corduroy and set it at an angle. I was very happy with how it looked. I sewed the panels together and added a zipper so you can remove the insert to clean the case. When something is made for a baby or child, it's very important to make it washable.

I hope to have additional photos of the pillow in the nursery very soon and will add those when I get them.

I believe this will be it on the sewing for a little while. I have a lot of design work coming in that I'm really excited about and will be sharing a couple of projects with you in the next two weeks. Check back soon!
