Day 27: 30 Days of Creativity - Pet Pillows

For Day 27 of 30 Days of Creativity I made the boys pet beds. Well, I made them a bit ago, but I'm finally blogging about them.

You see once upon a time these poor animals had nothing but the hard cold floor to lay on. They would huddle on the heat vents for warmth.

I started with one pet bed. Cute fleece sewn up on my sewing machine and stuffed.

Problem was they had to take turns on it.

That wasn't going to work.

There was always jealousy directed at the one that got the nice soft pillow.

So I made each of them their own bed and now they can sleep away happily ever after! The end.

  1. Those are awesome - and awfully fair of you. Do they each go to their "own" pillows or is swapping allowed??

  3. It's very interesting to note if each has claimed a particular pillow. Also, Hugo likes to share, whereas the other two feel crowded.

  4. So Sweet! I love that they're all lined up. I wonder if our monsters would each grab their own or try to share.

    They look like the perfect size - what are the dimensions?

  8. Those are super cute! Do you have a "pattern" and instructions to share that I could use as a guide.

  9. Kristen - ew ah no. I just made it up as I went along. Cut 2 squares and 4 rectangles, sewed them together inside out, turned them right side out then stuffed it!
