Caydi

Okay! My final post for tonight before I head to bed. My newest pillows were made the other night and yesterday morning. I believe they are my cutest yet. Yesterday after showing it them to my husband, he told me I should definitely give it a name! Giving it a name would be a great idea, but what?

This morning I woke up around 7am from a strange dream. I laid in bed for a while just thinking about it and before I knew it I was debating if I should try to sleep some more since it is my last day before going to work again or should I get up and research names for my pillow. Hmm…the questions in life. I got up!

I surf the internet and came upon some beautiful names but none of them seemed good enough. After messing with letters I happily settled with Caydi. Everyone, I’m pleased to introduce to you, Caydi!

Image 1 – My vector image I created. Image 2 – My first try from the other night. Caydi is quite wrinkly I must say! She took me about 6 hours to make. Image 3- Caydi made yesterday morning, roughly made in about 4.5 hours.

They are both 16×16 and I’m very happy with the outcomes. I am thinking about making a pillow for every month but that’s just a thought!

Doodles to Pillows

These are the first pillows I made a few weeks ago. I wasn’t sure what I was going to make but I did some quick doodles and before the night was over I had my first tiny little pillow. The girl wears a traditional purple Hmong turban and the boy has a black cap. I hand stitch the small ones and then sewed the two bigger ones. The small ones are about size 5×5 and 4×4. The larger ones are 16×16. I originally didn’t have a tiny little sweat bullet on the boy in my drawing but decided to add it in once I made it because my husband recommend it. 🙂 The big pillow however also doesn’t have the sweat bullet because I didn’t have any good fabric color to represent it! I’m planning on revising the design and making it better. Aren’t they cute though?
